Teachers and community members will gather just down the street from Turlock campuses 30 minutes before the morning bell Thursday to urge voters to pass Proposition 55 and Turlock Unified bond Measures N and O.
The Turlock Teachers Association is hosting the walk-ins at every school to demonstrate support.
Proposition 55 would extend higher taxes for schools on families earning more than $500,000 a year, continuing temporary hikes begun under Proposition 30 in 2012 that begin to expire this school year. Measures N and O are school bonds to pay for safety improvements, refurbishing schools and updating science, technology and engineering facilities.
“Our children deserve the best, no matter what part of town they live in. Let’s keep them safe and show them we value education by making them proud of the environment they learn in,” said Turlock Teachers Association President Julie Shipman-Norman.
