California will receive $6.8 billion of the $54.9 billion in Covid-19 relief funding for K-12 schools through an appropriations bill President Trump signed into law Dec. 27, 2020 that includes $900 billion in covid relief funding. This database shows the estimates of the distribution of the 90 percent of funding that will be distributed based on how much a school district or charter school receives in Title I funding. Because Title I is tied to the number of low-income children in a district, the amounts will vary considerably. Gov. Gavin Newsom has discretion over how to allot the remaining 10 percent to K-12 schools.
