A Portola Valley School District parcel tax, Measure O ballot question was on the May 7, 2013 ballot for voters in the Portola Valley School District in San Mateo County, California, where it was approved.[1]

The ballot question asked voters to:

  • Extend the existing parcel tax for 8 more years
  • Increase the size of the tax by $123-per-year/per-parcel, to a total of $581/parcel (from $458).

The current parcel tax of $458/year generates about $1 million every year for the school district. This amounts to roughly 10% of the school district's annual revenues. As this May 7 measure was approved, the district will receive another $265,000 a year from the parcel tax, for an annual amount of about $1.265 million.[1]

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