Instructions: EIA School Funding Plan

Consolidated Application, Spring Release program instructions for the 2013-14 EIA School Funding Plan.
Data Collection Purpose

If the LEA is operating a State Compensatory Education (SCE) program, District Advisory Committee (DAC) review is required based on Education Code (EC) , sections 35147 (c), 62002.5, and 64001 (a).

Based on information provided in the School Student Counts data collection, the table below provides eligibility and ranking information.

Funding selections made below define the LEA's Economic Impact Aid (EIA) Intra-District Plan. If the LEA will be allocating SCE funds, based on SCE Eligibility and Ranking, select schools to fund by placing a check in the SCE Fund column.

Note: this data collection will not display if the LEA did not apply for Economic Impact Aid.


Guidance

DAC: Shall include broad representation of the parent population served by this district or school respectively including socioeconomic and ethnic groups represented in the district or school attendance area. (5 California Code of Regulations [CCR] Section 4423)

If a school grade level configuration is modified the LEA must initiate the California School Directory Database change process located at the CDE Schools and Districts Web page. The proper form may be found under the section "School and District Updates," "School Forms," then select "Change Request for a California School Directory Database Code" (form CDS02 [DOC; Revised 13-May-2013]). This form must be submitted to the CDE per instructions.
