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 is now set to expire.
If local parcel tax funding expires, class sizes could increase, school libraries could close, and school staff, including teachers, aides, librarians, and counselors, could be 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 upcoming 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.
Supporting the success of students in Kentfield Schools should be a community-driven process, and we want to hear from you. Please see the links below for more information about continuing local funding.
