San Jose’s South Bay voters overwhelmingly passed ballot measures to extend parcel taxes for two local school districts. Only 27% of voters in the two boundaries of Berryessa and Los Gatos Union school districts turned out for the special election

About 7 out of 10 voters in the Berryessa Union School District approved Measure A, which renews a $79 parcel tax to maintain the level of services in the district for the next eight years. In Los Gatos, three quarters of voters also said yes to a parcel tax increase in the Los Gatos Union School District through Measure B. The measure increases the annual rate from $290 to $335 in 2022. The rate will continue to increase by 2% annually for the next eight years.
