In Their Words: TVHS Teachers

Open Letter to the Tanque Verde Community from
Advanced Placement and Duel Enrollment Teachers at TVHS:

This November, you are being asked to vote for increased education funding through Proposition 466. Passage of this override measure will do much to support our schools and our students, with virtually no change in the current tax for TVUSD households.

In its relatively short existence, Tanque Verde High School has solidified a reputation for academic rigor. Our students have the opportunity to pursue advanced study in a number of different disciplines. This year, the high school was named to the AP District Honor Roll, in recognition of an increase in both enrollment and achievement in these college-level classes.

In order to maintain this standard, the necessity of new funds from Proposition 466 cannot be overstated. These funds make it possible for
us to offer focused AP and DE classes to smaller groups of students. Without them, budget constraints could necessitate the elimination of many of these important programs. We ask you to support our mission to prepare students for the future by passing the override measure on November 6.

Please vote YES on Proposition 466, and invest in the future of TVUSD students!
