School Parcel Tax Measures, Facilities Bonds Generally Fare Well in November Election

November 15, 2018

California voters didn’t always say “yes” to school parcel tax measures and school facilities bonds in the November 6th election. But a majority of these measures were approved by local voters in school districts around the state.

Local voters approved 87 school facilities bond measures proposed by districts around the state, while another 18 school facilities bond measures came up short of the required 55 percent majority for approval.



School parcel tax measures face a higher threshold for passage - requiring a two-thirds majority (66.7 percent) for approval. Of the 12 school parcel tax measures proposed by districts around the state, seven parcel tax measures were approved, and five came up short of the required two-thirds majority.
