On May 5, 2015, Campbell Union School District (CUSD) voters approved Measure B, a special parcel tax assessment of $49 that is the first ever for the preschool-through-eighth-grade school district. The funds will help the District maintain core academic programs like reading, writing, math and hands-on science, retain qualified teachers, provide support for struggling students and offer advanced courses for high-performing students.
The measure would last for eight years and could not be renewed without voter approval. It requires fiscal accountability measures, including citizen oversight, annual reports to the community to ensure funds are spent as promised and no funds to be used to fund administrators’ salaries.
