The Chico Unified School District Board of Trustees held a special workshop Wednesday night to decide where they will allocate close to $6 million which has been gifted by the state.

The money is a onetime windfall stemming from a surplus in the California state budget, with no deadline on spending. The board surveyed parents and determined their top priorities were athletics, arts, and technology.

The board decided that $2 million will be used on upgrades to the Chico and Pleasant Valley High School athletic fields, $900,000 will be used to upgrade technology across the district, and $850,000 will be given to the art and music departments.

The board says that with what is left of the $5.8 million other needs will be addressed.
