Measure EE funds would be used to retain and attract quality teachers, reduce class sizes, and support instructional programs including arts, music, science, technology, English and math. Measure EE funds would be subject to review by an Independent Taxpayers Oversight Committee.

    Stanford's First Annual Career Day

    Stanford's first Career Day was a success! Career day provided valuable real-world interaction between students and professionals in our community. Several speakers rotated to individual classrooms as well as students rotated to various speaker stations throughout the day. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and think about the education and character traits of a professional. Thank you to all of our guest speakers for sharing their career paths and jumpstarting the dreams of our students. Preparing students for the future is the Tiger way!
