Tam high-school district eyes March ballot for tax increase, extension

The Tamalpais Union High School District is poised to place a 10-year parcel-tax increase and extension on the March 2020 ballot that would raise the annual tax by $190, to $645, in its first year — extra revenue officials say will keep the district financially stable and able to maintain its current level of academic programming for at least the next several years. The proposed higher tax would supersede the existing tax, which is set to expire in June 2022, and run through June 2030.
