RE:          AB 181-School District Transportation Service Plans and Local Air District Consultation

Dear Superintendents of Antelope Valley School Districts,

AB 181 reads in part: “SEC. 14. 39800.1. (b) (1) The plan shall be developed in consultation with classified staff, teachers, school administrators, regional local transit authorities, local air pollution control districts and air quality management districts, parents, pupils, and other stakeholders.”

The Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District is here to support your work and is available to work with you as needed.  The Air District does not review these plans; however, we will provide comments as it relates to air quality, if requested.

As you work towards the development of your school district plan, the Air District encourages moving towards zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) and zero-emission small off-road engines (i.e. Lawn and Garden Equipment).  Please contact the Air District for eligibility of our funding programs:

Carl Moyer Program and Community Air Protection Grants

These grants provide limited competitive funding for zero-emission school buses and associated infrastructure. Air districts may fund a project or projects at schools in disadvantaged communities or low-income communities. These programs also allow the following project types for schools:

• Composite Wood Products.

• Zero-Emission Lawn and Garden Equipment.

• Air Filtration Projects

• School Transportation.

More information on this funding, eligibility criteria, and how to apply can be found by contacting the Air District or visiting our website

School districts that receive and consider the information provided in this document are considered to have consulted adequately with the Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District and nothing further is needed unless directed by the State.  If further consultation is desired, please feel free to reach out to our office.
