JULY 2011...from The San Mateo Daily Journal: The San Mateo-Foster City (Calif.) School District is asking Foster City voters in November to approve a $25 million bond proposal. The money would enable the district to build an elementary school. Only the Foster City portion of the district will vote on the bond—the board has taken steps to create a school facilities improvement district that enables it to tax only a portion of the district. Such a measure requires a 55 percent support rate to pass.
