School Board Discusses Possibility of Renewing Existing Parcel Tax Measure

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education had a preliminary discussion regarding the possibility of renewing the District’s current parcel tax. The existing Measure C, approved by voters in May 2009, expires in 2016, and raises 6.8 million in annual revenue for the District.


The District contracted with EMC Market & Opinion Research Services to survey local voters in order to provide information to the Board regarding how potential voters currently feel about a possible renewal of the parcel tax.


According to the survey results, over 70% of likely voters in the district would support a no-tax increase renewal of the existing measure (renewing the measure at the same tax rate of $144/parcel).


TBWB Strategies then outlined the parcel tax renewal process which consists of a feasibility study, building consensus, building a strong measure, voter ID/ persuasion, and getting the vote out. Part of the renewal process is public information and outreach as well as measure development. The parcel tax financially supports the schools and helps us provide continued excellence in education within our school district. 


TBWB is recommending a mail-in-election for May 5th, 2015 with the renewal taking effect when the current tax expires in 2016. The Board agreed to have further discussion about the item at future meetings.
