Parcel Tax Citizens Oversight Committee

Schools Enjoy Community Support

In May of 2021 San Rafael voters generously approved a Parcel Tax of $323 for the Elementary district and $232 for the High School district per developed or undeveloped parcel, (both of which included a three percent annual inflation factor) for eight years beginning on July 1, 2021.

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 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:
