Newsom Signs Historic Education Package

Governor Gavin Newsom signed a stack of bills this week, including a $123.9 billion legislative package that provides record investments in public schools and $1.9 billion to help set up college savings accounts for vulnerable students. California’s public schools will receive the highest level of funding in state history.

Some of the biggest achievements for K-12 include universal pre-k, the expansion of dual immersion language programs, greater access to the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems, financial aid expansion, and $2 billion to increase affordable housing for students.

Newsom chose Fresno’s Sunset Elementary School for the signing Tuesday. On Wednesday, he visited California State University, Northridge. Visit the governor’s newsroom for information on the bills he signed and access the links below for further reading on the investments to education.
