Measure EE – School Parcel Tax

A school parcel tax measure is on the ballot for Los Angeles Unified School District voters in Los Angeles County, California, on June 4, 2019. A yes vote is a vote in favor of authorizing the district to levy an annual parcel tax—a kind of property tax based on units of property rather than assessed value—for 12 years at the rate of $0.16 per square foot of building improvements to fund educational improvements, instruction, and programs.

Measure EE is a critical part of the solution to the public education funding crisis that was highlighted by the recent teachers strike in the Los Angeles area.  Teachers and school district leaders agree that Measure EE will lower class sizes and provide needed resources for local schools, and pay salaries to retain and attract quality teachers and student support staff.

The Hollywood Chapter of the National Organization for Women (Hollywood NOW) is proud to support Measure EE!  Measure EE is an initiative to increase funding for LAUSD schools to lower class sizes and help neighborhood schools retain and attract quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff and principals.

Measure EE is supported by Mayor Garcetti, UTLA, SEIU, the County Federation of Labor, the LA County Democratic Party and countless other elected officials, community leaders and organizations.
