Whittier Union High School District
Proposition 30 Compliance Report for 2014-2015
Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, was approved by California voters on November 6, 2012. Proposition 30 temporarily increases the states sales tax rate for all taxpayers and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers.
The revenue generated from Proposition 30 is deposited into a newly created state account called the Education Protection Account (EPA). The Whittier Union High School District recently began receiving funds from the EPA. The funds for the District are based on the proportionate share of the District's statewide revenue revenue limit amount. The EPA funding amount for 2014-2015 is $19,922,544. A corresponding reduction has been made to the District's revenue limit entitlement. To comply with the requirements of Proposition 30 the District will ensure that:
- EPA funds will not be used for the salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative costs.
- Each year, the District will publish on its website an accounting of how much money was received from the EPA and how the funds were expended.
- A spending plan for EPA funds will be approved by the Board of Trustees.
For 2014-15 EPA funds will be used solely to cover salary and benefit costs of teachers. This information has been submitted to the Office of the California State Controller who will post the information on a centralized website offering the public a transparent view of how the Whittier Union High School District is complying with spending and accountability requirements of Proposition 30.EPA Financial Report 2012-2013 Click HereEPA Financial Report 2013-2014 Click HereEPA Financial Report 2014-2015 Click HereEPA Financial Report 2015-2016 Click Here
