In March and April 2012, the San Carlos School District commissioned a survey to get community feedback around a potential bond measure in November 2012. The survey results can be found here.
The findings of the survey were very favorable, showing strong support for the school district and a potential bond measure. Key findings included:
- 71.6% of voters have a favorable opinion on whether SCSD is providing quality education for kids (only 7.8% of voters had an unfavorable opinion — the rest answered “don’t know”) (Note that this was an increase vs. when a similar question was asked 19 months ago)
- When asked at the beginning of the survey if they would vote for such a measure, 62.3% said probably or definitely yes (28.5% said no, 9.2% said don’t know)
- Almost all of the potential features of the measure got significant support, including protecting quality of instruction, making needed repairs, upgrading classrooms and technology, and making safety improvements.
- Voters particularly appreciated that all money raised can only go to benefit our local schools
- After hearing the details of the measure, voters were asked at the end of the survey if they would vote for the measure. 66.6% of voters said probably or definitely yes. 30% said no, and 3.4% didn’t know.
