November 9, 2012 As part of the $2.8 billion school facilities bond for San Diego Unified School District, Proposition Z, the district will be allocating $350 million of funds specifically for charter school facilities projects. CCSA Advocates was a significant supporter of this school facilities bond which is seen as a breakthrough for charter schools in many ways.

Not only does Prop Z provide an unprecedented level of funding for charter school facilities, it also ensures that the funds will be made available to charter schools in as flexible a manner as possible. The Board of Education has created a committee of primarily charter community members to recommend how funds are spent and how to best use Proposition Z to assist with zoning, Proposition 39 and other charter issues.
