The overwhelming success of Scottsdale Unified School District’s Budget Override proved:
When citizens are reminded of the critical role SUSD’s quality schools play in our community, residents respond positively.
Over 6 out of 10 voters chose to renew the SUSD Budget Override on November 5th.
It was a new record of voter support for the school district.
The Yes To Children campaign was a grassroots effort that successfully reached into all areas of our community. It was an intense 4-month campaign.
Just imagine: If that relatively short campaign produced such significant support for SUSD – how much support could be generated for the school district with an ongoing effort in between bond and override elections?
Capitalizing on the momentum created by the Budget Override election and employing the strong grassroots network established during the campaign, Yes To Children is continuing to work with SUSD, teacher and parent groups and community leaders. YTC’s strategic objectives are to carry on the campaign to increase awareness about the excellent job SUSD is doing to help children excel and advocate for the school district, its students and teachers.
