Developer Fees

In 1986, the California Legislature authorized school districts to levy school impact or developer fees on residential and commercial/industrial development for the purpose of funding the construction or reconstruction of school facilities.  The basis of the school facilities legislation is the relationship between new development, and the impact on school districts to provide adequate school facilities for the student population new development generates.  The authority for the District’s assessment of developer fees is set forth in Education Code Section 17620, pursuant to Government Code 65995.


Developer Fee Rates (Effective 1/13/16)

 Commercial/Industrial Construction

 $0.51 per square foot


 $4.06 per square foot


Developer Fee Rates (Effective 3/11/17)

 Commercial/Industrial Construction

 $0.51 per square foot


 $4.58 per square foot


 A completed Developer Fee Certification Form and a copy of the Plot Plans will be required to verify the information, along with a business/personal check, cashier’s check, or cash, made out to Central Unified School District for the full amount.  (CUSD currently does not accept credit card payments)

All residential additions at 500 square foot or less are exempt from Developer Fees.  Complete the Developer Exempt Fee Certification Form  and provide copy of the Plot Plans for verification.
