Measure G and H Parcel Taxes

Supporting Academic Excellence in Local Schools

Since the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978, the community has conducted a series of successful annual fundraising campaigns to save school programs threatened by cutbacks in state funds.  Recognizing that the community could not sustain annual fundraising campaigns forever, the community identified the school parcel tax authorization as a means for Piedmont to maintain a measure of local control to preserve excellence in Piedmont's public schools.  In 1985, the first parcel tax was passed.  To date, Piedmont residents have approved Parcel Taxes eight times to preserve and maintain important educational programs and services in the schools.

Measure G School Support Tax will be used to:

  • Continue to attract, train, and retain high-quality teachers and educational support staff
  • Protect instructional programs and services, including art and music, world language, advanced placement, school libraries, classroom technology, and student counseling.
  • Maintain small class sizes.

Measures H will be used to:

  • Provide additional local revenue to maintain Piedmont’s excellent quality of public education by attracting and retaining high-quality teachers and educational support staff.
