As parents of young children who are future students of the Ocean Beach School District, the security of our school campuses and the safety of our children are of paramount importance to us as members of this community.

This levy will provide desperately needed security improvements to all four campuses which will modernize not only access to the buildings but also how they are monitored by staff and responding agencies in an emergency. With the frequency of lockdowns occurring within OBSD in the last three years and the tragedies happening across the country, we need to make these improvements, now, before relying on hindsight to show us what should have been done.

Making sure our schools are up to the current safety and security standards as identified under the Safe Schools Initiative and remedying overcrowding issues at Ocean Park Elementary in a cost effective manner are basic necessities for the children in our community to grow and excel in their learning environment.

We will both be voting to pass this 2019 replacement levy.
