Palo Alto Unified School District25 Churchill AvenuePalo Alto, CA 94301Cc: Superintendent Kevin Skelly, City Manager James Keene,Palo Alto City CouncilElected Board of Trustees:Subject: Support For Resolution Of PAUSD BoT To Opposing Palo Alto Measure CThe Board is encouraged to pass a resolution in opposition to Palo Alto’s Measure C(Marijuana Dispensary Legalization), which is currently aggendized:http://pausd.org/community/board/downloads/brd_packet/item_016.pdf Since the November election date is not far off, the Board is encouraged to waive anydelays that might normally be required for this sort of action. Additionally, the Board isrequested to issue press releases to all of the local media, as well as post some sort of announcement on the PAUSD’s web-site that increases the visibility of the Board’s actionto the public at large.
Drug Use Among PAUSD Students
One of the concerns which should be driving this Board Resolution is the evidence of druguse by PAUSD students, as revealed by the California Healthy Kids Survey conducted byWestEd (for the California Department of Education). Data from the most current surveyinvolving student drug use at Gunn High School has previous been submitted to the Board.The data below, obtained from the WestEd Web-site, looks at drug use by Californiastudents, and PAUSD students, for the interval 2004-2010:
