Developer Fees Information

Background

In 1986, the California Legislature authorized school districts to levy school impact or developer fees on residential and commercial/industrial development for the purpose of funding the construction or reconstruction of school facilities.  The basis of the school facilities legislation is the relationship between new development, and the impact on school districts to provide adequate school facilities for the student population new development generates.  The authority for the District’s assessment of developer fees is set forth in Education Code Section 17620, pursuant to Government Code 65995.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often do mitigation amounts change and how are they calculated?

The District evaluates mitigation amounts periodically (approximately every two years).  Mitigation amounts are determined based on studies that include demographic data, State Allocation Board information, and a statistical analysis of projected impacts of future development on the District.

  • How are mitigation amounts calculated? 

If the addition is less than 500 square feet, no mitigation amounts are owed. If the addition is 500 square feet or more, mitigation amounts are owed for the entire addition.  For example, if the addition is 750 square feet, mitigation amounts are owed on the full 750 square feet.  If the square footage is 499 or less, no mitigation amounts are owed. If you are converting "unlivable" space (such as a garage or basement) into livable space that is more than 500 square feet, this qualifies for fees.

 

You must still complete an application with the District even when the addition is less than 500 square feet so the District can issue a certificate showing the addition is exempt.

  • Do I have to pay mitigation amounts if I am building a home but have no children?

Yes, mitigation amounts apply even if you have no children because there will be an impact on the District if you sell to someone with children.
