Some facts about Measure A
Taxpayers living within the Clovis Unified School District have a lower school district bond measure tax rate than those living within the Fresno Unified School District. The CUSD rate of $156/$100,000 of assessed valuation is approximately 27% less than that paid by a property owner in Fresno Unified, where the current tax rate is $198/$100,000 of assessed valuation. The current tax rate did not increase with the passage of Measure A, it simply maintains the existing tax rate over time.
