School Support Tax

Contributing over one-third of the school district’s annual budget, Piedmont’s school support tax is the single most important reason our school system has been able to maintain a robust program in the face of ongoing state budget crises. Since 1985, Piedmont schools have benefited from stable local funding provided by our school parcel tax. The parcel tax automatically expires periodically. Piedmont voters reauthorized it in 1989, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013 and will vote on it again in 2019.
