Developer Fees


With the adoption of Senate Bill 50 and Proposition 1A in 1998, school districts which meet certain requirements now have the option of adopting alternative school fees ("Alternative School Fees"), also known as Level 2 Fees and Level 3 Fees, in accordance with Government Code Sections 65995.5, 65995.6 and 65995.7. In general, Alternative School Fees, which are calculated for each school district, apply solely to residential construction within a school district. More specifically, the Level 2 Fee, which is intended to represent fifty percent (50%) of a school district’s school facility construction costs per new home served, applies when the State Allocation Board ("SAB") is apportioning State Funding to school districts in California. The Level 3 Fee, on the other hand, is intended to represent one hundred percent (100%) of a school district’s school facility construction costs per new home served, and applies when the SAB officially declares that it is no longer making such apportionments.

 In order to impose Alternative School Fees on new residential construction within the District, the Poway Unified School District prepares and adopts a "School Facilities Needs Analysis" (SFNA) at least once annually as required by applicable law. The 2017 SFNA, dated July 7, 2017 was prepared and adopted by the Governing Board at their meeting on August 10, 2017
