A San Francisco Unified School District parcel tax, Proposition A ballot question was on the June 8, 2010 ballot for voters in the San Francisco Unified School District in San Francisco, where it was approved.[1]

With the enactment of Proposition A, property owners in the school district will continue to pay for another 20 years the $32.20/year or $16.10/unit per year on multi-family residential parcels that they have been paying since 1990.[2]

Funds raised from the tax can only be used for capital improvements. The tax is expected to generate about $7 million a year and is used primarily for seismic work and general maintenance on the more-than-100 school buildings in the district.[3]

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