Guidelines - Restricted Lottery Funds

Below is guidance related to the allowable uses of Restricted Lottery funding. The guidance is from the Fiscal Crisis Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) and the Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO).

"Proposition 20 states that the funds are "for the purchase of instructional materials". Education Code section 60010 (h) states that "instructional materials" means "all materials that are designed for use by pupils and their teachers as a learning resource and help pupils to acquire facts, skills, or opinions or to develop cognitive processes.  Instructional materials may be printed or non-printed, and may include textbooks, technology-based materials, other educational materials, and tests."

According to the Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO), instructional materials consist primarily of textbooks and other reading materials, but also include other items such as computer software, arts and crafts supplies, and maps.

In order to meet the definition of EC 60010 (h), instructional material must be a learning resource.  For example, a globe or a map would fit the definition as a student could learn from it without a lot of instruction. Paper itself does not qualify unless it is used as an instructional material. For example, part of an art project or to print instructional materials. Source:
