FAIRFIELD — Forty-four percent of people interviewed by a public opinion and marketing research firm give an excellent to good rating for the Fairfield-Suisun School District, while 24 percent rated the school district as only fair and 11 percent gave Fairfield-Suisun a poor rating.
Twenty-two percent had no opinion when Gene Bregman & Associates of Santa Cruz County conducted 404 interviews after Fairfield-Suisun contracted with the firm in January to survey public opinion for a possible parcel tax.
A total of 46 percent of people said the Fairfield-Suisun district has a great need for more money while 30 percent said the school district has some need for the money.
Seventy one percent said they would support a $49 parcel tax, while 64 percent support a $74 tax.
Gene Bregman will present results of the survey to school district trustees when they meet Thursday. Keith Weather of Government Financial Services Inc., the district’s financial advisers, will be present to discuss next steps with trustees, who meet at 6 p.m. in the board room at the school district central office, 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.
