Business & Non-Instructional Operations




It shall be the policy of the Board of Education to establish and maintain a special program account for the proceeds of the State Lottery. The purpose of the account shall be to provide funding for such programs as the board shall establish for the education of pupils excluding the acquisition of real property, construction of facilities or financing research. Procedures and reporting processes shall be developed in compliance with Government Code 8880.5.

The superintendent will recommend annually for board consideration a list of priorities identifying specific programs and budgeting implications for the expenditure of lottery funds.

The board shall establish and maintain a lottery account contingencies reserve of twenty-five percent (25%) of the first four (4) funding increments to provide for any unanticipated reduction in funding due to the uncertainty and fluctuation of the lottery proceeds. The lottery account contingencies reserve is subject to an annual review, as applicable, to lottery programs which have been initiated.
