Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

ADJUSTMENT TO SCHOOL DISTRICT PRINCIPAL APPORTIONMENTS
FOR STUDENT ATTENDANCE IN STATE SPECIAL SCHOOLS
FISCAL YEAR 2013–14

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 [Note: the preceding item number is incorrect and has been replaced with 6110-005-0001.] of the Budget Act of 2013 (Chapter 20, Statutes of 2013) 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 [Note: the preceding item number is incorrect and has been replaced with 6110-005-0001.]). 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 2013–14 reported by the CDE to the SCO. These adjustments will be deducted by the SCO from the January 2014 principal apportionment payments, scheduled for January 29, 2014. The CDE will authorize the final adjustments in fiscal year 2014–15 once actual excess costs for fiscal year 2013–14 are known.

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 and charter schools 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Categorical Programs Unit, by phone at 916-319-0323 or by e-mail at SReel@cde.ca.gov [Note: the preceding contact is no longer valid and has been replaced by Tonya Holmes, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, Categorical Programs Unit, by phone at 916-323-6028 or by e-mail at tholmes@cde.ca.gov].

Sincerely,

 

Peter Foggiato,
Director School Fiscal Services Division
