School Fees Information

Before obtaining a building permit, certain construction projects require payment of a development fee to the school district associated with the project location, per state law AB 2926. Generally, school fees apply as follows:

  1. Residential - Fee required for all new dwellings and additions of 501 square feet or more. 
  2. Commercial/Industrial - Fee required for all new buildings, all interior or exterior additions (any size), and any change in use that triggers a higher assessed rate.

PERMIT APPLICANT INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Request a School Fees Form from the City of San José Building Division. The Permit Center staff will fill out a portion of the form and note the project square footage. For questions, contact the Call Center at 408-535-3555. 
  2. Take the form to the appropriate school district/s for evaluation and possible payment of school fees. Unless the property is located in a unified school district, the applicable development fee must be paid to both the elementary school district and high school district associated with the project location. Contact the school district for fee information. 
  3. Return the completed form to the Building Division with proof of payment of school fees.
