Since the last Pioneer PTA meeting a few weeks ago, there has been much discussion on the school budget and what can, should, and will be done. Like any other budget we can either cut expenses, raise funds, or both. Budget cuts will have a lasting impact on my children (in first and sixth grades), our children, and your children.
What does this have to do with real estate in Davis? You don't have to think long about that one. A great number of Davis home owners purchase(d) here for the schools. If the school district deteriorates, it will impact home values. Of course, property values are insignificant compared to our children's education. I'm just saying, there is a relation between the quality of schools and the demand for property in Davis.
Many have profited over the years due to the quality of Davis schools. It isn't a long term solution, but in the interrim, the time is now for real estate professionals to give back to the school district. Donations could be in proportion (yes...you know who i'm talking about) to gain over these past years of tremendous growth. Now is the time to step up...
To help raise funds and/or donate, go to http://%20http//www.davisschoolsfoundation.org/ and make your contribution. Lori :o)
