On May 3, 2011 voters in the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District demonstrated their support for our students and our schools by passing Measure A - a district parcel tax of $49/parcel, designed to provide a source of locally controlled funding to be used to continue to provide a top quality education for our students. More recently, voters approved a new measure, continuing the current parcel tax amount of $49 through 2025. THANK YOU!
While there is no legal requirement for a citizen oversight committee for parcel tax funds, Measure A stated explicitly "the Board of Education will establish a process for independent citizen oversight." The committee has been charged with reviewing expenditure reports and ensuring Measure A funds are spent for the following purposes, stipulated by the Measure:
- Provide support for core academic programs such as math, science and English;
- Attract and retain highly qualified teachers;
- Maintain college and career preparation programs;
- Provide classroom materials such as books and science laboratory equipment.
