Office of Public School Construction Helps Dedicate New Elementary School in Anaheim
The Office of Public School Construction’s (OPSC) Executive Officer Lisa Silverman joined local officials in a dedication ceremony on February 15 for the reconstructed Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Anaheim.
The new facility provides learning space for up to 1,000 Anaheim City School District students, while the construction of the school bolstered the local economy through the creation of approximately 390 jobs and the purchase of building materials.
The project received $21 million in state funding from the State Allocation Board’s
(SAB) New Construction and Modernization programs for the construction of 43 K-6 classrooms. Additionally, facilities such as administration, library, and a multipurpose room were constructed.
The New Construction Program
provides state funds on a 50/50 state and local sharing basis, and the Modernization Program
provides state funds on a 60/40 state and local sharing basis for eligible projects that add capacity to a school district.
OPSC serves as staff to the State Allocation Board and implements and administers a $35 billion voter-approved school facilities construction program.
