UPDATE: All 29 precincts have reported.

Measure E, which will assess a $150 per year tax on parcels for the Cabrillo Unified School District, has been passed with 70.7% of the vote with all precincts reporting.

The measure needed a two-thirds majority to pass. This victory will end a five-time losing streak for CUSD parcel taxes. The most recent effort—Measure S in 2006—lost with only 61% of the vote.

The passage of Measure E will assure the jobs of dozens of district employees, including middle and high school counselors, and elementary school teachers hired to enable class size reductions.
