A Rowland Unified School District parcel tax, Measure E ballot question was on the June 30, 2009 ballot for voters in the Rowland Unified School District in parts of Los Angeles County and Orange County, where it was defeated.[1][2]

Measure E asked voters to approve a $120 annual parcel tax that would have lasted for five years. The school district said that the tax was needed to offset an estimated $16 million deficit due to the state budget crisis.[3]

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