The passage of Proposition 30, the Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, allowed the District to receive funds through a new Education Protection Account (EPA) that was established by the voter initiative. Proposition 30 requires any district receiving EPA funds to post how it spends those monies on its website.
EPA funds represent a portion of the District’s General Fund’s revenue that would have been cut if Proposition 30 had not passed. Therefore, these funds do not represent increased revenue above what the Board adopted in the District’s budget.
