Lottery Funds   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees intends to use lottery funds to 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 not commit lottery funds for any purpose until they have been received.

The Board shall establish funding priorities and approve all allocations within the parameters of law. Lottery funds allocated for the purchase of instructional materials pursuant to Government Code 8880.4 (Proposition 20, March 2001 ballot initiative) shall be expended on instructional materials as defined in Education Code 60010.

"Instructional materials" means 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 non-printed, and may include textbooks, technology-based materials, other educational materials and tests. (Education Code 60010)

Lottery funds shall not be used to acquire real estate, build school facilities, finance research, or serve any other non-instructional purpose, such as those related to school maintenance, business and administrative operations.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a separate account for the receipt and distribution of lottery funds that shall be clearly identified as a lottery education account. (Government Code 8880.5)
