LAUSD’s board has a new member. But no time to celebrate, as the campaign for a parcel tax marches on

By Taylor Swaak || LA School Report With Tuesday’s school board election delivering a decisive win for public education firebrand Jackie Goldberg, next month’s parcel tax vote is now center stage. L.A. Unified’s next election — less than three weeks away on June 4 — will ask residents within district boundaries to support Measure EE, a tax of 16 cents per square foot of developed property to raise about $500 million annually for the district. L.A. Unified is projecting insolvency in three years ...

LAUSD’s dire finances could lead to state takeover in 3 years if parcel tax fails

Los Angeles Unified School District will run out of money in three years unless it makes drastic cuts in spending or voters pass a hefty parcel tax on the June 4 ballot, according to the district’s most recent budget. In the aftermath of a new contract for teachers to end a strike earlier this year, county education officials have warned they could step in to take control of the finances at the nation’s second largest school district if the forecast doesn’t improve. The financial situation is so...

Fight over LAUSD parcel tax heats up as district defends ballot language, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assn. files lawsuit

Hoping to quell a recently arisen dispute over the ballot language of a parcel tax measure going before voters in June, the Los Angeles Unified School District board approved a resolution Tuesday affirming that the property tax levy would not include residential or commercial parking structures. Yet the move did little to appease groups opposing the measure — most notably the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, which filed a lawsuit Tuesday in an effort to block the June 4 election on the matte...

We’ll find out if Prop. 13 is still a sacred cow

It’s been almost 41 years since Proposition 13 passed in 1978, lowering property taxes for every home, apartment building, commercial structure, farm and parking lot in California. Through almost all that time, the initiative sponsored by longtime anti-tax gadflies Howard Jarvis and Paul Gann remained a sacred cow, a third rail that election officials and candidates of every stripe feared to touch for fear of political electrocution. But now it’s suddenly open season on Prop. 13, often vilified ...
