Property taxes we pay go to the County and then are allocated to a number of other local agencies including cities and special districts. In the end, property tax revenues only cover about half of the District’s operating costs.
The rest primarily comes from the state. Unfortunately, our allocation of state funding is proportionally smaller than other districts because of the demographics of our community. This means our District has to do more with less. For this reason, EUSD is the lowest funded school district among the 16 in Placer County. In order to continue to provide enrichment programs such as music, band, choir, world language, and athletics, the District looks to ESF for assistance.
