Editor: The recent economic downturn has taken its toll on government funding for public services at the local, state and federal levels. State funding for public elementary and secondary schools in California has been cut nearly twenty percent in the past five years. The West Sonoma County Union High School District relies on a local parcel tax for part of its funding. Since 1998, funds raised by a local parcel tax have allowed Analy, El Molino and Laguna High Schools to continue toprovide outstanding instructional opportunities including counseling and library services, music, fine arts, drama, science equipment, and technology. The current parcel tax generates approximately $530,000 in revenue to the West County high school district annually. The current parcel tax was approved in 2005 for an eight-year period, and expires in June 2013.
