Dear County Superintendents of Schools and Treasurers:
Statute requires the school district of residence of the parent or guardian of any residential student attending a State Special School to pay ten percent of the excess annual cost of education for that student (California Education Code Section 59300). Item 6110-006-0001 of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009, Third Extraordinary Session as amended by Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009, Fourth Extraordinary Session) requires the State Controller Office (SCO) to withhold the amount due from each school district, as reported by the California Department of Education (CDE), from the district’s principal apportionment, and transfer that amount to the State Special Schools’ account
(6110-106-0001) [Note: the preceding information is replaced with (6110-006-0001).] The amount withheld will be shown as a separate item in the remittance advice for the principal apportionment payment.
Accordingly, enclosed is the schedule of transfers or “adjustments” for projected excess costs for fiscal year 2009-10 reported by the CDE to SCO. These adjustments will be deducted by the SCO from the February 2010 principal apportionment payments. CDE will authorize the final adjustments in fiscal year 2010-11 once actual annual data become available.
Please advise your school districts of these adjustments as indicated on the enclosed schedules. The amount reflects a reduction to the district’s principal apportionment.
For standardized account code structure (SACS) coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted Resources, and
Revenue Object Code 7130 [Note: the preceding information is replaced with Expenditure Object Code 7130], State Special Schools.
If you have any questions regarding the adjustments, please contact
