About Measure MB

YES on MB will keep Manhattan Beach schools among the best in California and the nation.

Our outstanding teachers and academic programs prepare students for top colleges and careers, with 95% of MBUSD students going on to college or post-secondary training.

With student test scores in the top 1% in the State, many families are drawn to Manhattan
Beach for our top-ranked public schools, fueling strong demand for homes and protecting our
property values.

Whether or not you have school-age children, protecting strong schools and property values is
a wise investment.

We cannot count on Sacramento for adequate school funding. Out of all K-12 school districts in California, Manhattan Beach USD receives the second lowest amount of state funding - nearly $2,000 less per student annually than the state average.

Additionally, among the top school districts
in the State, Manhattan Beach is one of the few that does not receive locally controlled funding from a voter-approved school
parcel tax.

As a result, available funding to Manhattan Beach schools is as much as $5,000 less per student each year compared to high performing school districts like Palo Alto, Palos Verdes, San Marino and Santa Monica-Malibu USD.

YES on MB provides local education funding the state cannot take away, allowing Manhattan Beach schools to:

  • Retain high-quality teachers and maintain manageable class sizes
  • Protect quality math, science, reading, social studies, art and music
  • Preserve advanced programs in science, technology, engineering and math
  • Prepare students for top colleges and careers

Measure MB requires strict fiscal accountability, including:

  • Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee and mandatory audits
  • No funds may be used for administrator salaries or pensions
  • By law, every penny must stay local and cannot be taken by the State
  • Homeowners 65 and older are eligible for a full exemption and do not pay

Please join parents, educators and Manhattan Beach respected leaders in voting YES on MB to keep our schools among the best!
