SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today that local educational agencies LEAs will soon receive about $8.4 million in the third round of Proposition 39 planning funds.
“Prop 39 is generating some much-needed support for modern school facilities and healthy environments for young Californians,” Torlakson said. “These projects bring together job creation, environmental protection, cost savings, and learning opportunities.”
Covering a span of five years, Proposition 39 will direct up to $2.5 billion in new revenue to fund projects by California LEAs, including school districts, charter schools, county offices of education, and community colleges. Future years funding will go toward the projects themselves, and first-year awards that were not used for planning can also go toward projects.
