Measures H, I Tax Exemption Forms Now Available

The filing deadline for tax year 2010-11 is June 15

The Measure H and Measure I parcel tax senior citizen exemptions forms for are now available on the Santa Barbara School District Web site.

The filing deadline for the exemption for tax year 2010-11 is June 15.

The Board of Education voted to place the two measures on the November 2008 ballot to secure reliable, supplemental local tax dollars in order to fund valued programs for students.

Measure H supports education in grades 7 through 12. The funds are being used to supplement math, science and technology education; music, arts and theater programs at the junior high school level; foreign language at the secondary level; and restores ninth-grade math class sizes in the Santa Barbara Secondary School District, which serves 10,000 junior high and high school students.

Measure I supports education in kindergarten though sixth grade. The funds are being used to supplement math, science and technology education as well as offer classroom music programs to nearly 5,000 elementary school students.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
