Saugus junior backs Measure SA

I am a junior attending Saugus High School. This past year, I have become especially interested in the politics of our country, state and city.

I have recently become aware of a measure that will be presented on the Nov. 4 ballot that will affect the student body of Santa Clarita Valley schools.

Measure SA is a bond that will grant the high school district $300 million to upgrade, build and refurnish our local schools.

This bond will diminish overcrowding, increase technology and increase access for the disabled. Measure SA will benefit today’s students, future students, the staff members of SCV school districts, and the citizens of Santa Clarita.

The schools in Santa Clarita are one of the main reasons that our community is a safe, protected and admired environment to raise a family.

In order to keep this tradition strong, we need to get the community to vote “yes” on Measure SA.

I personally experienced the modernization of Saugus. Measure V was passed in 2001 and helped Saugus receive a new library, media center, new food services, new science buildings, a new amphitheater, and remodeled classrooms and gyms.

I strongly believe that these new and gorgeous renovations have left a huge impact.

Our school has received some of the highest test scores in the state of California due to the excellent teachers, staff, and environment here.

I strongly encourage the registered voters of our community to vote “yes” on Measure SA to keep the enrichment of our schools strong!
