Developer fees are fees that are paid by property owners and developers to school districts to mitigate the impact created on school district facilities by new development within a school district’s boundaries. Fees are typically paid to the school district as a condition of a property developer or owner obtaining a building permit from the city or county for a construction project. School districts have been authorized by law since January 1, 1987.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and by the order and direction of California Governor Gavin Newsom, effective March 20, 2020, the Chino Valley Unified School District is closed to the public until further notice. However, we are still processing and accepting developer fee payments via appointment. To make an appointment, please call (909) 628-1202 ext. 1200. Additionally, please complete the CVUSD Draft Certificate of Compliance (below) in advance of your scheduled appointment time.
