A Cutler-Orosi Unified School District parcel tax, Measure U was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the Cutler-Orosi Unified School District in Fresno County and Tulare County. It was defeated.

Measure U proposed a parcel tax of $89 per parcel per year. The tax would not have sunsetted (that is, it would not have ended after a set number of years). Under Measure U's provisions, the tax could have been increased annually in a "cost of living" adjustment. The tax was expected to generate about $350,000 per year.[1]

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
