AB 1867 – Modernization Of Bathrooms For K-12 Districts

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Oct 28, 2022

Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998 allows the Director of General Services to adopt rules, regulations, and procedures for the allocation of state funds by the State Allocation Board for the construction and modernization of public school facilities.

If voters approve a statewide general obligation bond that provides funds for certain school facilities at a statewide election occurring after November 1, 2022, AB 1867 will require any school district, county office of education, or charter school that applies for state funding 3 months after the vote for a school modernization project to also modernize their bathrooms.  When the school district, county office of education, or charter school submits its modernization project to the Division of the State Architect (DSA), it must also include faucet aerators and water-conserving plumbing fixtures in all bathrooms if the modernization project meets the following criteria: (1) the school facility was constructed before January 1, 2012; (2) the modernization project contains an existing faucet or water plumbing fixture in the space to be modernized or repaired; and (3) the plan includes modernization or repair of the interior of a school building.

This requirement is not applicable if the purpose of the modernization project is limited to the exterior of a school building, the school grounds or the playing fields of a school, or the bathrooms already have both faucet aerators and water-conserving plumbing fixtures at the time the plans are submitted to DSA.

 (AB 1867 adds Section 17584 to the Education Code.)
