San Leandro Schools Receive $8 Million in State Grants

According to a press release issued March 27, 2008, by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O'Connell, San Leandro High School projects funded under Measure B will receive an additional $8 million in funding from state grants under Proposition 1D. Proposition 1D was passed by California voters in November 2006 at the same time that Measure B was passed by San Leandro voters.

The grants are for new construction or modernization of career technical education facilities. The San Leandro Unified School District (SLUSD) submitted five career and technical education grant applications to the California Department of Education through the Career Technical Education Facilities Program (CTEFP). The $8 million in grants represents the total amount for which SLUSD submitted applications.
