Where do your fees go?

The Santee School District levies school fees for construction projects being developed in accordance with Government Code Section 53080. These fees pay for the construction and/or reconstruction of school facilities to accommodate student enrollment growth resulting from residential, commercial, or industrial development projects that occur within the Santee School District attendance boundaries. School fees may also be expended for furniture and equipment for new classrooms. School fees are assessed when a new development seeks a Certificate of Compliance from the District. This certificate is necessary for the Developer to obtain a building permit from the applicable City or County agency. Every two years, the State Allocation Board (SAB) determines any adjustment to the school fee rate.
