Developer Fees

In partnership with Tuolumne County, TCSOS collects developer fees for school districts that levy fees to finance school building construction.

On January 1, 1987, AB 2926 enacted Government Code sections 65995 and 53080, which authorized school districts to levy a developer fee on new construction, for the purpose of paying their required share of school building construction. The fee is levied based on the square footage of residential and commercial/industrial building that takes place in the districts. Below are the district fees, which include both the elementary and high school districts rates, as of 6/11/2016:
