William S. Hart School District To Receive $3.6 Million

jackoconnellHigh school students attending Academy of the Canyons have been taking classes at their new facility at College of the Canyon’s new University Center since August 2009. Due to the financial hardship gripping the State of California, bonds approved by California voters to match funds for the University Center were delayed.

 

That changed when State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell announced today that the State Allocation Board (SAB) awarded $961 million to 199 schools for the construction and modernization of school facilities.

$3,644,919 of the awarded amount will return to the William S. Hart High School to match what the district paid for the University Center Project and the Learning Post facilities.

“Our student population continues to grow while our aging classrooms continue to fall into disrepair,” said O’Connell. “Thanks to voters who approved bond measures, students will soon have safer and more modern facilities in which to learn. Also, the approval by the State Allocation Board today will help stimulate our embattled economy by creating construction jobs throughout California. This is a win-win situation for the state.”

California’s public school population is expected to grow by nearly 61,000 students in the next five years. In order to keep up with the growth and deal with aging school facilities, the state will need to modernize 20 classrooms each day.

O’Connell is a member of the SAB that also approves final construction apportionments. The SAB is responsible for determining the allocation of state resources, such as proceeds from General Obligation Bond issues and other designated State funds used for the new construction and modernization of local public school facilities.

The SAB is also charged with the responsibility for the administration of the School Facility Program, the Charter School Facilities Program, the Overcrowded Relief Grant Program, the Critically Overcrowded School Facilities Program, the School Facility Joint-Use Program, the Career Technical Education Facilities Program, the Emergency Repair Program, and the Deferred Maintenance Program.

The SAB is the policy-level body for the programs administered by the Office of Public School Construction. The SAB meets monthly to apportion funds to school districts, act on appeals, and adopt policies and regulations as they pertain to the programs administered by the SAB.
