Proposition 51 is used to supply grants to eligible schools for the purpose of improving and expanding their Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. Specifically, the measure allows for eligible schools to apply for new construction funding, remodeling and reconfiguration structures, and/or funding for CTE equipment. Grants from the California Department of Education are matched by the District with a dollar for dollar match – maximum awards are $3 million from the state with a $3 million District match. To date, Elk Grove Unified has submitted 10 applications.  three of four were funded last year. This year, based on our high scores we are hopeful that several more will be funded.  We are pleased to say that the top scores in the entire state were earned by Culinary Pathways at Elk Grove and Florin high schools. Final funding decisions will be announced in the end of April early May. Fingers crossed!
