About the Workshop

The passage of Proposition 51 provided much-needed funding for new construction and modernization projects, but, only three years later, the funds have all been exhausted. The 2019–20 Legislative cycle, however, provided some light at the end of the tunnel with the authorization of a new $15 billion facilities bond for the March 2020 ballot, as well as additional funding for kindergarten facilities. This workshop will provide school agencies with updates on the latest happenings in the state capitol as it relates to facilities funding, as well as an overview of the timelines and approvals necessary for the construction and/or modernization of a school facility, and step-by-step details on the basics of school construction accounting.

If you are new to school construction; new to the responsibilities of school construction accounting; or if your district passed a bond, plans to issue a new bond series, or anticipates receiving state funding for school facilities, you need the basics in order to get started on the right foot. It is critical that school agencies understand the nuts and bolts of school construction and funding before they embark on these facilities projects.
