The Governing Board intends to use lottery funds for supplemental expenditures which support educational programs and activities. In recognition of the fact that amounts received from the California State Lottery fluctuate from year to year, the Board shall reserve the equivalent of one-fourth of the annual projected lottery revenues.

The Governing Board shall establish funding priorities and approve all allocations within the parameters established by law. Lottery funds allocated for the purchase of instructional materials pursuant to Government Code 8880.4 (Proposition 20, March 2000 ballot initiative) shall be expended on instructional materials as defined in Education Code 60010.

"Instructional materials" mean all materials that are designed for use by students and their teachers as a learning resource to help students to acquire facts, skills, or opinions or to develop cognitive processes. Instructional materials may be printed or nonprinted, and may include textbooks, technology-based materials, other educational materials and tests. (Education Code 60010)
