Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

FINAL ADJUSTMENT TO SCHOOL DISTRICT PRINCIPAL APPORTIONMENTS
FOR STUDENT ATTENDANCE IN STATE SPECIAL SCHOOLS
FISCAL YEAR 2012–13

Statute requires the school district of residence of the parent or guardian of any residential student attending a State Special School to pay 10 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 2012 (Chapter 21, Statutes of 2012) requires the State Controller’s 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 (6110-006-0001). The transfer is separate from the First and Second Principal Apportionment certifications.

Accordingly, enclosed is the schedule of transfers or “adjustments” reflecting the difference between 10 percent of the final excess costs incurred in fiscal year 2012–13 and the amounts previously transferred at the 2012–13 First and Second Principal Apportionment certifications. Positive entries show reductions to the district’s principal apportionment payment; negative entries show an increase, to compensate for previous transfers that now exceed the final amount.

County superintendents will be notified by e-mail, addressed to the county’s CDEfisc e-mail address, regarding these adjustments. The e-mail includes a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/statespecialschool.asp where these adjustments are posted. The CDE requested that the e-mail be forwarded to all school districts in the county.

For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted Resources, and Expenditure Object Code 7130, State Special Schools.

If you have any questions regarding the adjustments, please contact AnneMarie Rouse, Office Technician, State Special Schools & Services Division, by phone at 916-327-3850 or by e-mail at ARouse@cde.ca.gov. General questions regarding this notice may be directed to Shannon Reel, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, Categorical Programs Unit, by phone at 916-319-0323 or by e-mail at SReel@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

 

Peter Foggiato, Director
School Fiscal Services Division
