In the last two years, Lammersville Unified School District has received an average of $854K in funding from the California State Lottery. 

The lottery’s mandate, as defined in the California State Lottery Act, is to provide supplemental funding to California public education on all levels from kindergarten through higher education plus several specialized schools. For every dollar taken in by the lottery, a minimum of 34 cents goes to public education. The remainder goes toward prizes and administration of the lottery system. The lottery was approved by voters in 1984.

In the Lammersville Unified School District, lottery funds are placed into the General Fund, which funds operations and items such as books, duplication, supplies, technology, and instructional materials. 

Public schools receive the same per-pupil funding from the lottery, based on average daily attendance of students the district. According to the Lottery Act, lottery contributions can be used only for instructional purposes. Acquisition of property, the construction of facilities or the funding of research is prohibited.
