Wilk secures $1.8 million for Hesperia Unified School District classroom construction

Sen. Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) is pleased to announce that the State Allocation Board, of which he is a member, has approved $1.8 million to go to Hesperia Unified School District for the construction of new classrooms.

“Success in life starts in the classroom. Investing in our students, making sure they get the education they deserve in new, well-equipped classrooms, is vital to ensuring that early success,” said Senator Wilk. “Quality education is something I care deeply about, and I am so grateful to see these funds invested in the High Desert community. Congratulations!”

The funds, totaling $1,804,614, were approved during the State Allocation Board’s April 3 meeting. $894,792 will go toward construction of new classrooms at Joshua Circle Elementary, and $909,822 will go to Krystal School of Science, Math & Technology to fund new classroom construction as well. Both schools are within Hesperia Unified School District.

The State Allocation Board membership is comprised of the Director of Finance, the Director of the Department of General Service, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, three members of the Senate, three members of the Assembly, and one appointee by the Governor. 

It meets monthly to apportion funds to the school districts, act on appeals, and adopt policies and regulations.
