Received Parcel Tax Advisory Committee Report and Recommendation – The School Support Tax Advisory Subcommittee recommends that the Piedmont Unified School District levy the Measure G School Support Tax (Parcel Tax) at its maximum level in 2022-23, which would result in the maximum 2% increase above the rate in 2021-22. The 2% increase, if adopted by the Board, is expected to yield PUSD an additional $219,674 in revenue for the 2022-2023 school year, based on an assumed base School Support Tax amount for the current year of $10,982,759. On a per parcel basis, this increase would add $56.37 to the current per parcel levy of $2,818.26, making the total tax levy per parcel $2,874.63 for 2022-23. Read full recommendation.

Approved Comprehensive Safe School Plans – PUSD’s Safe School Plans address the school district’s responsibilities in emergencies associated with natural disasters, mechanical disasters, and suspect initiated events. It provides a framework for coordination of response and recovery efforts within the District in coordination and with local, State, and Federal agencies. The Plan establishes an emergency organization to direct and control operations at all sites during a period of emergency by assigning responsibilities to specific personnel. The plans meet the requirements of the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) Operational Area Response, and define the primary and support roles of the District and individual schools in after-incident damage assessment and reporting requirements.
