Saratoga Union School District Core Academic Programs Parcel Tax Measure B

On May 8, 2012, voters approved the Measure B Parcel Tax assessment of $68 per parcel per year.  The tax expires after 8 years. 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 will:

  • Protect outstanding core academic programs in reading, writing, math and science

  • Retain highly qualified teachers

  • Support hand-on science classes for all grades

  • Help protect the number of instructional days in a school year

  • Provide classroom books and instructional materials, including classroom technology

No proceeds are used for administrative salaries and benefits.  Exemptions are available for senior citizens and recipients of SSI for a disability.

The students and staff of Saratoga Union School District greatly appreciate the support of the community and voters.
