Proposition 55
State of California

Post

How much money would it generate for SCUSD?

  • Proposition 55 would extend existing income taxes on the wealthiest Californians.
  • If passed, it would generate about $22.8 million per year for SCUSD at full implementation.

What would the money be used for?

Proposition 55 funds could be used to continue district investments in areas such as: lower class sizes, high school counselors, classroom technology, after school programs, enrichment programs and supports for students in need.

What would be the impact to our schools if it doesn’t pass?

  • If Proposition 55 doesn’t pass, Sacramento City Unified School District could be subject to cuts after Proposition 30 expires in 2018.
  • Currently, the district anticipates that expenses will continue to increase faster than revenues. Funds from Proposition 55 will help offset that gap.

What will it cost you?

  • Proposition 55 would extend existing income taxes on the wealthiest Californians for an additional 12 years.
  • It would not raise any taxes above existing levels.
