In November 2006, the state's voters approved Proposition 1D, authorizing $10.4 billion in bonds for the repair and modernization of kindergarten to university school facilities. Proposition 1D was approved by 56.6 percent of the voters. The funds from Proposition 1D for K-12 public schools break down as follows:
|Project Allocations||Proposition 1D Funds|
|New Construction||$1.9 billion|
|Charter School Facilities||$500 million|
|Career Technical Education||$500 million|
|Joint-Use Projects||$29 million|
|Severely Overcrowded Schools||$1 billion|
|High Performance Schools||$100 million|
The state bond funds are allocated to K-12 school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education through the State Allocation Board (SAB). The Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) in the Department of General Services functions as staff to the SAB. Information regarding the allocation of Proposition 1D funds for K-12 schools can be accessed on the OPSC Web page .
The higher education funds are administered by the California Community College, California State University, and University of California systems.
