Wise use of ERAF Surplus

Hello Members of the city council

As a resident and taxpayer in the Menlo Park City School District, I am
writing to express my support for *Councilmember Mueller’s suggestion* that
the city give $1 million of its ERAF surplus to MPCSD as mitigation for the
cost - estimated at $663,000 annually - of the increased school enrollment
expected from the Stanford housing development.

With a $1 million gift, put into endowment along with Stanford’s gift of
$1.5 million, the school district will be on track to annually generate 60%
of the cost of educating the Stanford development’s students, bringing it
on par with what typical housing developments generate.

Please consider *giving MPCSD a $1 million gift* so that when the new
students arrive, as they surely will, the district will be equipped with
the resources to educate them. We all appreciate the value that an
excellent school district adds to our vibrant community, and with your
foresight and help, we can maintain the quality that we all expect.
