AB 2235 K-12 Bond Bill

Posted on by jvincent

So AB 2235 (Buchanan and Hagman, authors) continues to make its way through the California legislature. The bill is currently scheduled to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on August 11th. However it's still unclear where the Governor stands on a school facilities bond.

CC+S research finds it's time to overhaul the state's K-12 facility funding approach: California's K-12 Educational Infrastructure Investments: Leveraging the State's Role for Quality School Facilities in Sustainable Communities
