School Impact / Developer Fees

Effective January 1, 1987, Assembly Bill 2926, Section 53080 to the California Government Code authorizes any school district to levy "School Impact / Developer Fees" on any new construction, remodels or additions to residential and commercial / industrial

development projects for the purpose of funding the construction or reconstruction of school facilities.


The Sequoia Union High School Districts (SUHSD), Maintenance and Operations department, provides the community and the elementary feeder school district's within our boundaries the service of processing applications and collection of these fees. They are

Belmont/Redwood Shores, Las Lamitas, Menlo Park, Portola Valley, Ravenswood, Redwood City, San Carlos and Woodside.


Legislation also provides that "No building permits may be issued until the district's certify that any fees due have been paid."


The fee rates were last updated as of April 15, 2020, with Resolution No.1665, which was APPROVED, PASSED and ADOPTED by the Governing Board of the Sequoia Union High School District and became effective on June 15, 2020. The current rate per square foot for residential projects is $4.08 and $0.66 for commercial / industrial projects. Of each fee rate, 60% goes to the elementary school districts and 40% goes to the SUHSD.
