About the Parcel Tax

  • The students and staff of the school district are profoundly grateful for the support from our community!

    On May 8, 2012, voters approved the Measure B Parcel Tax assessment of $68 per parcel per year.  On May 7, 2019, voters approved Measure A to renew the parcel tax for 8 more years with over 72% of the vote! The tax is assessed against each parcel of taxable land in the school district. A parcel is defined as any parcel of land which lies wholly or partially within the boundaries of Saratoga Union School District, and receives a separate tax bill for property taxes from the Santa Clara County Assessor/Tax  Collector's Office.

    The Parcel Tax proceeds help ensure reliable funding that cannot be taken away from the state.  Parcel tax funds:

    • Protect outstanding core academic programs in reading, writing, math and science
    • Retain highly qualified teachers
    • Support hands-on science classes for all grades
    • Help protect the number of instructional days in the school year
    • Provide books and instructional materials, including classroom technology

    No proceeds are used for administrative salaries and benefits. Optional exemption forms are available for senior citizens and recipients of SSI for a disability. You may download the forms from this webpage.
