Measure EE is LAUSD’s bond measure appearing on the June 4, 2019, ballot that calls for a 16 cents per square foot parcel tax. An analysis indicates most homeowners will pay between $100 and $450 more a year; the larger the property, the more you pay. The bond will raise $400 to $500 million annually to lower class sizes, add counselors and nurses, and cover the recently negotiated pay raises. Otherwise, the District will continue making draconian cuts to the tune of $749 million by 2021-22 to meet the reserve benchmarks required by law. Failure to do so could lead to the Los Angeles County Office of Education removing the authority of the Board, taking over the District, and making unilateral cuts.
There is no doubt
