Education Protection Account
Proposition 30, passed in November 2012, established the Education Protection Account (EPA). Revenue generated from increased taxes are deposited into the EPA and distributed to districts and charter schools on a quarterly basis. While funds from the EPA are part of a district’s or charter school’s general purpose funding, Proposition 30 specifies that EPA funds may not be used for salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative costs and must be accounted for separately.
