Measure A

MEASURE A

Measure A, a Mello-Roos parcel tax approved by voters on November 7, 1989, authorized the District to sell up to $90 million in bonds to serve as a funding source for operational expenses, including equipment and furniture expenditures meeting specific criteria, facility and site upgrades and repairs, infrastructure improvements, and site leases, including Certificates of Participation as approved by the Board of Education and in adherence with comprehensive state guidelines.

 

Property owners who are 65 years or older and live in a home they own within the Mt. Diablo Unified School District may be eligible for a Senior Exemption from the parcel tax.

 

Equipment

If the answer to any one of the following five questions is yes, the item is classified as a supply item and cannot be charged to Measure A funds:

  1. Does the item lose its original shape and appearance with use?
  2. Is it consumable, with a normal service life of less than five years?
  3. Is it easily broken, damaged, or lost in normal use?
  4. Is it usually more feasible to replace it with an entirely new unit than to repair it?
  5. Is it an inexpensive item, having the characteristics of equipment?

(Note: District policy identifies an inexpensive item as being under $100.)

 

If all answers are no, the item qualifies as equipment and can be charged to Measure A funds. Examples of items which cannot be classified as equipment: Science kits, reading kits, test tubes, scissors, brooms, books, baseballs, equipment parts or equipment repair.

 

Physical facilities include features which can be classified as equipment under Measure A.  These include roofs, fork lifts, heavy duty machinery and equipment, technology, and vehicles.

 

Furniture

Any piece of furniture is an allowable expenditure from Measure A funds.
