Passing Proposition 55 is a top priority for MTA and CTA as it will help ensure that Public Education is well funded over the course of the next 12 years. As such, we are mounting a statewide Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign to remind supporting voters to vote on November 8. We need your help!!!
Please spend some time with MTA on Saturday, November 5 between 11am - 4pm to help us remind voters to vote. This activity does not require you to try to convince voters but rather to deliver door hangers to positively identified homes.
Click here to sign up. We will have plenty of snacks and water and everything you will need to help deliver this important reminder.
Vote Yes ON PROP 55
California students, schools and colleges can’t afford to go back to the days of massive budget cuts, educator layoffs, larger class sizes and tuition hikes. Prop. 55 does not raise taxes on anyone; it simply maintains the current income tax rates on the wealthiest Californians. Prop. 55 prevents $4 billion in funding cuts to public education and protects other vital services, like children’s health care. Money goes to local schools and colleges and the Legislature can’t touch it. Prop. 55 contains strict accountability requirements to ensure funds designated for education go to classrooms, not to bureaucracy or administrative costs. Help our students thrive. Vote YES on Prop. 55 because our children and schools matter most.
It's also worth noting that MUSD certificated salary schedules will be directly impacted by the passage of Prop. 55. The MUSD-MTA Contract stipulates that half of the funding that exceeds District projections during the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years will be applied as a raise to certificated employee salary schedules.

MUSD has prepared a form for you to be able to turn in your receipts so they can process your reimbursement.
For the 2016-17 and 2017-18 fiscal years, school sites will receive an additional budget allocation to be used for said reimbursements. The additional allocations are specifically for the reimbursement of classroom teacher expenditures up to $200 per year and exclusively for instructional supplies. It’s the responsibility of the administrator at each school site to monitor and ensure compliance (eligibility of teachers, classroom supplies and maximum of funds).
Click here to access the fillable PDF form which the classroom teacher is required to submit to the site administrator when requesting reimbursement. This form will then be submitted to Finance for tracking and audit related purpose.
The Finance Department has notified administrators via email and has furnished a copy of this form. Questions can be referred to your site administrator.
