Can I Look Up My District’s Eligibility and Past New Construction Funding Received?

  • Demonstration of OPSC Project Tracker

Funding process1
Funding Process

District submits application for eligibility determination to the OPSC.

SAB Unfunded Approval

OPSC New Construction Eligibility & Funding Process

As cash becomes available, Unfunded Approval is converted to Apportionment.

Traditionally the District had 18 months from apportionment to request a fund release. In recent priority funding rounds, districts have had 90 days to submit a fund release.

New cash management systems are being discussed.

OPSC determines eligible pupil grants and makes recommendation to the SAB for approval

SAB Approval

District submits funding application including CDE and DSA approved plans to the OPSC.*

OPSC releases grant amount pending district match and construction contracts signed.

Project Construction

OPSC determines eligible grants and makes recommendations to SAB for approval

District submits substantial progress/expenditure reports.

*Financial hardship districts can request advanced site and/or design funding.

Eligibility determination
Eligibility Determination

  • Establishing eligibility is done once

    “If you’re not sure, check the OPSC Tracker”

  • What is New Construction Eligibility?

    • Measures (in “pupil grants”) districts’ ability to access funding to house new pupils

    • Determined by projected number of unhoused pupils

      = projected enrollment minus classroom capacity

    • Established on either a district-wide basis or separately for high school attendance areas

      SFP Regulation Sections 1859.30 to 1859.51.1


Loading standards
Loading Standards

Un-housed Pupil Need

  • District has 300 (K-6) students, would like to build 10 classrooms

  • Based on the K-6 loading standard;10 classrooms x 25 pupils = 250 pupils.

  • 300 pupils minus 250 pupils = 50 pupils

  • Therefore, the District would have an un-housed pupil need for 50 students

    Education Code 17071.25(a)(2)(1)


How eligibility translates into
How Eligibility Translates into $$$

  • New Construction Funding equals

    Pupil Grants Requested* (AKA “Base Grant”)

    plus Eligible Supplemental Grants

    plus Eligible Site Acquisition

    plus Eligible Site Development

    *Pupil grants requested are capped by the pupils housed within the project. Base Grant = Pupil Grants x Per Pupil Amount

  • Pupil Grant Values may be adjusted annually by the SAB.

    SFP Regulation Sections 1859.70 to 1859.77.3

Establishing new construction eligibility
Establishing New Construction Eligibility

  • To Establish New Construction Eligibility the Following Forms are Required:

    • Form SAB 50-01

    • Form SAB 50-02

    • Form SAB 50-03

  • Establishing or updating new construction eligibility must be done prior to or concurrently with the funding application

    SFP Regulation Sections 1859.50. to 1859.51.1

    Education Code 17071.10, 17071.25, 17071.30, 17071.33, 17071.40, 17071.75, 17071.76, 17052, 17070.551, 17072.20, 17077.40, 17078.72, 17079.20, 42268, 42270


Establishing New Construction Eligibility

District-Wide vs. High School Attendance Area

  • District-Wide eligibility is when the entire District is looked at as a whole to determine eligibility

  • HSAA eligibility is when a District is divided into regions and then each region establishes new construction eligibility

  • Switching Between District-Wide & HSAA is only allowed when five years under the prior option has passed since the last SAB apportionment

    SFP Regulation Sections 1859.40 to 1859.41.1

    Education Code 17071.75, 17071.76, 17070.35

Submitting a new construction funding application
Submitting a New ConstructionFunding Application

  • DSA Approval:

    • Obtain DSA approval before letting construction contracts.

    • DSA approval expires after 1 year - a renewed approval is required if approval has expired.

  • CDE Approval:

    • Obtain CDE site/plan approval before submitting a funding application. CDE Approval expires after 2 years.

  • 60 Percent Commensurate:

    • Architect Certification that the estimated/actual construction costs are greater than 60% of the State grant plus the District’s match (less site acquisition, planning, tests, inspection, furniture and equipment, and LCP costs)

  • Occupancy:

    • The application for funding must be submitted prior to the Date of Occupancy. Otherwise, the application is ineligible for funding.

  • Labor Compliance Program

    • A Labor Compliance Program (see LC 1770 through 1781) must

Submitting a new construction funding application1
Submitting a New ConstructionFunding Application

Multiple Funding Sources:

Projects with 2 or more project scopes that are

funded with separate sources:

(example, contains ineligible expenditures, or funded through more than one SFP program):

  • Identify in writing both scopes of work

    • Identify the source of funding for both, and

    • Indicate that the District will establish a separate expenditure record system to provide a clear project audit trail

  • Submit either separate or prorated cost estimates for verification of 60% commensurate


Submitting a new construction funding application2
Submitting a New ConstructionFunding Application

Multiple Funding Sources:

  • Create separate sub-funds to track both scopes of work, to ensure:

    • State’s funds and district’s matching funds are attributed to correct portion of project;

    • interest accrued from these sub-funds is accounted for;

    • warrants are issued and expended from the correct project fund;

    • savings is attributed towards the correct project

  • Contracts, change orders, and payment applications should be pro-rated so the

    expenditures can be reconciled to each

    portion of the project

Sfp tips
SFP Tips

  • Eligibility must be updated for enrollment changes for the same enrollment year the district requests funding

    • Exception- Districts < 2,501 pupils can lock their eligibility for up to 3 years

  • Locally Funded Classrooms

    • Report any classrooms that have been constructed and funded entirely with local funding on the next funding application submitted.

    • Report interim portables where the lease has extended beyond five years

  • New Construction Grants for Replaced Facilities:

    • Section 1859.73.2 allows for replacing facilities when it is more cost effective to demolish & build multilevel than to purchase a new site
