      Parcel Tax - Measure C

      Many of our community members are not aware of how much the Mountain View Whisman School District depends upon locally generated revenue to supplement state and federal education funding. In our District, this  constitutes nearly a quarter of our total revenue.

      One of the largest sources of this local revenue is our Parcel Tax, which generated annually approximately $2.8 million for the District. Our local Parcel Tax was approved in 2009 as Measure C to maintain the high quality of our neighborhood schools. It has been used to fund programs that the District would not otherwise have been able to provide. The Parcel Tax provided essential funding in the past for items such as the following:

      • For all District schools –
        • Classroom teachers (to offset state funding cuts)
        • Library technicians to maintain school libraries
        • Counseling and mental health services
      • For all K-5 schools –
        • Physical education for all students in grades 1-5
        • Outdoor education (science camp) for all students in grade 5
        • Materials and staffing for “hands-on” science programs
        • Additional custodial staff to ensure clean and well-maintained classrooms and campuses
        • Clerical staff to provide school office assistance and family and student support
      • For both middle schools –
        • Classroom teachers to expand instrumental and vocal music programs
        • Staff and programs to provide intervention and support for “at risk” students

      The Parcel Tax is an additional tax charged to property owners, who annually pay between $127 and $1,116, based on the size of their parcel. There are specified exemptions for senior citizens, those receiving Supplemental Security Income, and owners of multiple contiguous (adjacent) parcels operated as a single business. The current Parcel Tax was approved for eight years and is set to expire in 2017.

      We want to express our continuing gratitude to those MVWSD residents who supported the Parcel Tax and to those property owners who provide such an essential resource for our students.

    Ayindé Rudolph

    arudolphhedmvwsd

    Dr. Rudolph comes to Mountain View Whisman from the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, where he served as Associate Director of School Transformation. The Promise Neighborhood Initiative was a five-year federally funded program, modeled after the Harlem Children's Zone, that encourages communities to develop public-private partnerships. 

    His achievements during his tenure with the Promise Neighborhood included instituting a 1:1 learning environment, which received recognition from President Obama and Secretary Arne Duncan at the White House; the implementation of a new teacher evaluation system; and three new curricula aligned to the new national standards.  He also redesigned the school’s talent acquisition and management systems, with focus on providing positive feedback to encourage growth.

    Dr. Rudolph has held the position as principal in a traditional high and middle school, a kindergarten through 8th grade elementary school, a charter school, countywide arts magnet, Title 1 and a Bill and Melinda Gates funded “small” themed (STEM) high school.  In each of his positions he has led dramatic turnarounds, including leading a high school to consecutive national rankings (134).

    Dr. Rudolph has three kids, twin girls, who are in high school, and a son entering elementary school. His children have been his inspiration and motivate him to develop learning environments that he would be proud to engage and immerse them into. 

    In 2015 Dr. Rudolph climbed to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania to conclude his quest to raise $10,000 for cancer research. In addition to being a cancer advocate, he is an avid cyclist, voracious reader and budding triathlete. 

    Dr. Rudolph received his Doctorate in Education in Leadership, Policy and Organizations from Vanderbilt University.  He also holds an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and Administration as well as a Master of Education in Secondary Education from George Washington University.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts in History from Wittenberg University
