School Reopening Comparison Chart

Frequently Asked Questions on SB 86

Here are some current highlights of the deal:

  • $2 billion in Proposition 98 funding will be available for school districts offering in-person instruction by April 1, 2021.
  • In-person instruction requirements differ depending on the county tier as defined by the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
  • School districts currently offering in-person instruction do not need to modify their plans to be eligible for the funding.
  • An additional $4.6 billion will be distributed to all school districts, proportionally based on LCFF with an additional $1,000 for each homeless student, intended for learning recovery.
  • The majority of the $4.6 billion will have broad flexibility and can be used for in-person programs and services through August 31, 2022.

As a result of our collective advocacy, significant changes to the legislation include:

  • All collective bargaining requirements have been removed.
  • COVID-19 testing cadence requirements were dramatically curtailed to be limited to schools in the state’s purple tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
  • Schools looking to expand in-person services will have a less stringent pathway to exit the purple tier.
  • Schools currently offering in-person instruction are not required to take additional actions or abide by new conditions
  • Vaccinations are prioritized for educators but staff vaccination is not a condition for returning to in-person instruction.
