• JUHSD Faculty and Staff Housing
    Coming in Summer 2022

    122 Units

    59 One-Bedroom

    56 Two-Bedroom

    7 Three-Bedroom

    As one part of their continuing effort to improve the district’s ability to recruit and retain highly qualified certificated and classified staff, the JUHSD School Board has decided to develop employee housing.  This will be apartments that are offered exclusively to JUHSD employees at a rental rate at approximately half the typical market rate. The housing complex will eventually form part of a larger neighborhood. You can view information about the vision of Serramonte Del Rey at this link

    A survey of district staff was conducted in September 2017 to gauge interest in employee housing.  266 employees responded to the survey. 

    • 67 (25%) very interested, 37 (14%) somewhat interested, 65 (24%) would consider
    • Of the 169: 61% 1BR, 20% 2BR, 19% 3BR

    The full results of the survey can be found here.

    The JUHSD Non-Profit Board to Oversee Staff Housing was developed with guidance from the JUHSD Staff Housing Committee. This committee helped to develop the Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation used to establish the non-profit, and to determine who should serve on the Board of Directors. Learn more about the Staff Housing Committee here. Examples of Housing Board duties include the following: resolve or facilitate tenant disputes, set limits for tenancy, determine if they can grant more time, approve a budget annually, and oversee the property manager.

  • Additional Housing Options

    Landed Educator Housing Program:

    Landed has helped over 170 Northern California educators purchase a home with their shared equity down payment program and more than 350 educators buy homes across the country.

    Landed’s down payment program provides employees in education with up to $120,000 towards the down payment on a home. This program is open to all employees—teachers, staff, and administrators—who have worked in public education for at least two years and can contribute at least a 10% down payment. You do not need to be a first-time homebuyer to participate.

    This month, Landed is hosting two online information sessions for all employees interested in learning more about Landed’s down payment program and other home buying resources. Interested participants can RSVP here:

    As you know, our district teamed up with Landed, a company working to help educators build financial security and achieve homeownership.


    Landed will provide half your down payment, up to $120,000. In exchange, you will share in the gain (or loss, if any) of equity in your home when you sell or refinance. There are no monthly payments on the support.


    This program is open to all Jefferson Union High School District staff who have worked for our district (or another California school district) for at least two years and can contribute a portion of the down payment themselves.
