House Bill 153 of the 129th General Assembly authorized the Commission to provide funding to assist STEM schools. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM schools not governed by a single school district board of education may apply for assistance in constructing, reconstructing, repairing, or making additions to classroom facilities. The STEM school must secure at least 50 percent of the total cost from non-state sources. In general, Vocational Facilities Assistance Program policies and procedures apply to STEM school facilities unless otherwise provided in law or waived by the Commission.
