Parcel Tax Oversight Committee

Schools Enjoy Community Support

San Rafael voters generously approved a Parcel Tax of $203.70 for the elementary district and $146.08 for the high school district per developed or undeveloped parcel, (both of which included a five percent annual inflation factor) for eight years beginning on July 1, 2014. The ballot language specified that an independent Citizen's Oversight Committee be appointed by the Board of Education to ensure that special tax proceeds are spent for their authorized purposes, and to report annually to the Board and the public regarding the expenditure of such funds.

 

The committee will inform the Board concerning the expenditure of parcel tax revenues. The committee shall actively review and report on the proper expenditures of taxpayer’s money for educational programs and projects and shall convene to provide oversight to ensure that the funds are expended for their authorized purposes such as: 

  • Maintain small class sizes 
  • Maintain quality school libraries and technology that supports learning 
  • Attract and retain high-quality teachers
  • Support student counseling programs (ESD)
  • Enhance core academic programs like math, science, and reading (ESD)
  • Enhance math, science, music and fine art instruction (HSD) 
  • Prepare students for college and 21st-century careers (HSD)
