    DHS PTA voted unanimously to endorse Measure G, and we'd like to ask for your YES vote on March 3rd.  

    You probably already know that DJUSD teachers earn less than teachers in all other school districts in Yolo County (and beyond).  It has become harder to keep teachers in Davis, and harder to attract new teachers to begin their careers here. Measure G addresses this compensation gap with a $198 parcel tax.  The parcel tax will raise $3 million in revenue, all of which will go towards improved compensation. This is the only sustainable way to attract and retain excellent teachers without compromising our school or community values.   For additional information visit the Measure G website:

    PTA also partners with Go Overseas to host a gap year fair on Saturday, February 22nd from 1 to 4 pm in the DHS Library and ASC.  This event is free and open to everyone, not just DHS students and not just for those who are graduating this spring. If you are looking for summer internship opportunities this is another great way to connect with programs that fit your interest.  Pre-registration Link:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/usa-gap-year-fair-2020-davis-ca-registration-82130569745?aff=HostSchoolDavis
