California State Modernization Program


sealYou may have noticed more projects and improvements at Brookside and Oak Park High School. These facilities were more than 25 years old which qualified them for California State Modernization funding. At Brookside we received $1.8 million and $2.7 million at Oak Park High School allowing us to do 15 % more projects than the Measure R Bond alone.

Proposition 39



Proposition 39 incentive program encouraged us to add more energy-saving measures to our already planned renovations which allowed us to undertake more comprehensive, longer-lived projects that will continue saving energy into the future such as:

  • Energy efficiency retrofits 

  • Renewable energy installations

  • Staff Training

  • Energy Management, including Conservation and Energy Education 

Proposition 39 funds added further energy-saving measures for Measure R projects, but did not duplicate modernization grants.
