Education Code section 17620 and Government code section 65995 allows for the collection of development fees for the provision of school facilities. Code requires that a Developer Fee Justification Study occur at a minimum of every five years. Cooperative Strategies has completed an updated study for the District. The State Allocation Board (SAB) sets the maximum rates that can be charged for Level I fees. This rate was adjusted by the SAB on January 22, 2020. Completion of the Developer Fee Justification Study allows the District to adjust our fees to the maximum as set by the SAB. Please click on the link to view this study.
