Parcel Tax Renewal 2018
In the Kentfield School District (KSD), we provide an environment that challenges all students to live, learn, and lead to their fullest potential. We are grateful that our community has supported our district with local parcel tax funding for over 30 years. This education funding helps keep our schools among the best in the state. This critical source of funding was set to expire.
If local parcel tax funding had expired, class sizes could have increased, school libraries could have closed, and school staff, including teachers, aides, librarians, and counselors, could have been laid off. Our schools rely on local funding to support academic programs and maintain the outstanding art, music, and elective programs critical to a well-rounded education.
The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to place a measure on the March 6, 2018, all-mail ballot to continue the existing KSD parcel tax at the current rate of $1,143 per parcel, add $355 per parcel, and bring current local education funding into compliance with recent changes in state law.
On March 6, 2018 Kentfield voters approved continuing the existing KSD parcel tax at the current rate of $1,143 per parcel, add $355 per parcel, and bring current local education funding into compliance with recent changes in state law. The Parcel Tax rate approved in March 2018 took effect on July 1, 2018 and expires on June 30, 2028.
