Cambrian School District parcel tax, Measure L (November 2010)
If Measure L had been approved, it would have imposed a parcel tax of $96 per year, per parcel, for six years.
The Cambrian School District consists of four elementary schools and one middle school.
These election results are from the Santa Clara County elections division as of November 27, 2010.
The editorial board of the San Jose Mercury News endorsed Measure L, saying, "Despite financial pressures, the four elementary schools and Price Middle School have achieved an average API score of 867, an impressive performance. An existing $73 parcel tax that funds arts, music, physical education and technology would continue. The $850,000 in new revenue from a new $96 per parcel should enable the district to stave off larger classes and keep programs until the state better meets its obligation to K-12 education."
