San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) is one of the highest performing school districts in the nation, with more National Blue Ribbon schools this past year than any other district in the State or nation. The Board of Trustees of SRVUSD is considering whether to adopt resolutions to place two parcel tax measures on the upcoming ballot for voter consideration.  Below are some background facts about the proposals and hw revenue from parcel taxes have historically been used.

 

FACT:  Our local schools are supported by $6.8 million annually from an exiting voter-approved local parcel tax measure that is set to expire in 2025.
FACT:  The annual revenue from this measure allows SRVUSD to fund 56 teaching positions.
FACT:  In the next two years, $6 million in one-time State-funding for SRVUSD will expire.  This funding supports programs that ensure that all studemts have tje opportunity to succeed academically.


WHAT IS BEING CONSIDERED:

RENEWAL OF EXPIRING PARCEL TAX
 
  • Attract and retain highly qualified teachers
  • Support academic programs in science, technology, engineering, arts, math, reading and writing
  • Prepare students for college and careers
  • Maintain Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs 
  • Renew at the current $144 per parcel per year rate, annually adjusted, with a senior citizen exemption
FISCAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND LOCAL CONTROL
 
Any future local funding measures would include the same accountability requirements as past measures, including:
  • Senior citizens and individuals with disabilities would be exempt
  • All funds would be controlled locally and could not be taken away by the State
  • No funds for pensions or administrators’ salaries
 
SUPPLEMENTAL PARCEL TAX TO ADDRESS THE LOSS OF ADDITONAL STATE FUNDING
 
  • Support programs in reading and literacy for the youngest learners
  • Provide support for struggling students to succeed academically
  • Address student mental health needs
  • Attract and retain qualified teachers to support students with special needs
