What about the Measure G Parcel Tax and Measure K Bond that I've heard about?
Measure G Parcel tax
On June 7, 2016, voters approved Measure G Parcel Tax assessment for $142.00 per parcel for eight years. Parcel Tax funds allow Moreland School District to attract and retain high quality teachers, maintain high-quality science, reading and math programs, including classroom technology and learning materials, keep class size small and keep school libraries open and accessible to students. The tax is assessed against each parcel of taxable land within MSD boundaries.
Measure K Bond
The Measure K Bond was passed in 2010. This bond will continue to improve the buildings and classrooms that house our students. Projects include installing solar panels on all of our school sites to decrease the use of general fund money. Bond money cannot be used to pay salaries, which is the biggest part of a district’s budget. Go to www.moreland.org and search for Measure K for more information.
