Board Resolution Regarding the Education Protection Account

Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, approved by the voters on November 6, 2012, temporarily increases the state’s sales tax rate for all taxpayers and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers. The revenue generated by the measure’s temporary tax increases is included in the calculations of the Proposition 98 minimum funding guarantee for California school districts.

The new revenues generated from Proposition 30 are deposited into a newly created state account called the Education Protection Account (EPA). Proposition 30 requires all districts, counties, and charter schools to report on their Web sites an accounting of how much money was received from the EPA and how that money was spent.

The Benicia Unified School District hereby determines, as described in the attached Board Resolution, to spend the EPA funds estimated at $5,055,678.00, on teacher salary and benefits. Board Resolution 12-13-16.
