The passage of Prop 39, the release of more than $500 million in matching state funds for construction projects, an improved state economy and commitments of increased support for schools – these and other factors have brought new hope and energy to California’s schools.
The 2014 Green California Schools Summit is your best opportunity all year to make sure that your company captures its share of these new activities. Just how big are they?
The K-12 Market California’s public education system is immense, encompassing more than six million students in about 9,900 schools.
A recent report from U.C. Berkeley’s Center for Cities and Schools estimated that the state needs to invest $117 billion in renovating existing school facilities over the coming decade.
Districts throughout the state have passed bonds and undertaken other actions to make it possible to build and renovate facilities. Click here for a recent story about these trends.
The Community Colleges Market The California Community Colleges (CCC) form the largest post-secondary educational system in the world, serving over 2.9 million students annually – 77 percent of California’s undergraduate public college students.
The system includes 112 colleges, 70 off-campus centers and 22 district offices and its assets include nearly 5,000 buildings.
More than 80 percent of higher education enrollment growth in the next decade is projected to occur in the community college system.
Why Exhibit? Retrofits Coming In the coming years, both K-12 and community college systems will be undertaking large-scale retrofit programs, to bring facilities up to current efficiency standards. Now is the time to build relationships for these projects!
