Proposition 39 K-12 Program Reminders and Deadlines

Project Completion

The deadline for all Proposition 39 funded projects to be installed is June 30, 2021. As you may recall, the deadline was extended for one year due to Covid 19.

Local Education Agencies (LEAs) with Proposition 39 funded projects not completed by the June 30, 2021 deadline, may be required to return Prop 39 funds.

Amendments

Amendments are not processed from the months of July through September consistent with past year’s Prop-39 K-12 Program administration. All amendments not approved by June 30, 2021, will be deleted from the Prop 39 system and required to be resubmitted when processing resumes.

LEAs making changes to their approved Energy Expenditure Plan (EEP) triggering an amendment, must file an amendment request. Amendments are required if the LEA, 1) added an energy efficiency measure(s) not included in the approved EEP, 2) removed an energy efficiency measure(s) in the approved EEP, 3) changed the approved equipment quantity installed by more than 15%, or 4) if overall project cost increased or decreased by more than 15% of the approved EEP funding.

Annual Reports

LEAs must submit annual progress reports to the California Energy Commission (CEC) no later than September 30, 2021. Annual progress reports must include Prop 39 K-12 program funded project work for the period of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

LEAs must provide an annual progress report to the CEC for each approved energy expenditure plan until all energy measures within the expenditure plan are completed/installed. As the project installation deadline is June 30, 2021, this will be the final year for annual reports. Annual progress report templates will be made available July 1, 2021, through the Energy Expenditure Plan Online Reporting system found at https://www.p39plan.org.

Please log on to the Energy Expenditure Plan Online Reporting system and complete your annual progress report and submit no later than September 30, 2021. Instructions, training videos, and PowerPoint presentations for completing the annual report are available on the CEC’s Proposition 39 K-12 program webpage, found at Annual Progress Report Instructions (Revised 2016).

Final Project Completion Reports

All final reports are due no later than September 30, 2022. LEAs with Proposition 39 funded projects must submit a Final Report. LEAs failing to submit a final report are subject to a requirement to return Prop 39 funds.

Prop 39 K-12 Program Success

The Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39) K-12 Program allocated more than $1.5 billion over five years to schools across the state to improve facilities and help lower energy bills. Upgrades include switching to LED lighting, replacing inefficient air-conditioning and heating units, and installing solar panels.
