Funding Description

This is annual funding for the currently operating CPA programs included in the State Budget. This annual funding to support Clean Technology and Renewable Energy California Partnership Academies (CPAs). SBX1 1 (Statutes of 2013, Ch.20) provides the legislation to support the development and operation of the Clean Technology and Renewable Energy CPAs. The jobs and activities described are very specific and range from entry level to professional level. The intent is to help guide the Academy focus towards employment and career opportunities that are growing and critical to California’s economy and environment.

Emphasis is placed on student achievement, attendance, and program accountability.
