Parcel Tax Measures

What is Measure I Parcel Tax?

Measure I is an annual education parcel tax in the amount of $150 per parcel, for eight years (ends FY2027-28), with annual audits, citizen oversight, no funds for administrators’ salaries, and all revenues staying in our local schools. This tax money is used for Cabrillo Unified to retain highly qualified teachers; maintain strong academic programs in reading and writing; preserve strong academic programs in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM); prepare students to excel in high school, college, and careers; and maintain school safety and security. 

Parcel Tax Exemption for Measure I

Citizens age 65 years and older, as well as individuals with disabilities receiving SSI or SSDI, receiving an exemption from the parcel tax continue to be eligible for an exemption and do not need to reapply.

The Parcel Tax Citizen Oversight Committee (COC) is responsible for ensuring all funds are spent as promised (details above).  The Committee achieves this by reviewing expenditures and presenting a written report to the Board and public at least annually.  Per bylaws, the Committee is comprised of one representative from the business community; one from a senior citizens organization; two from represented bargaining units; and three selected by the Board, of which at least one has a child enrolled in a District school.
