San Francisco Unified School District parcel tax, Proposition A (June 2008)
San Francisco Unified School District Measure A appeared on the June 3, 2008 ballot in San Francisco, California, where it narrowly passed. To pass, it required a 2/3 vote. It imposes a parcel tax of $198/year on real estate in the school district.
The text of the ballot question was:
- "To enhance quality educational programs for children; attract and retain quality teachers and staff by increasing salaries; provide teachers with additional compensation for extra work at hard-to-staff schools and in hard-to-fill subject areas; and increase teacher training, resources and classroom support, technology, innovation, and accountability, shall the San Francisco Unified School District be authorized to levy $198 per parcel annually, adjusted for inflation, with mandatory citizen oversight?"
