2007-08 Advance Apportionment Letter

Letter Head: Jack O'Connell, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Phone number 916-319-0800

July 31, 2007

Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, Treasurers:

2007-08 Advance Apportionment

Towards the end of July, county treasurers will receive a warrant that reflects state aid for programs included in the 2007-08 Advance Apportionment for elementary, high, unified school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education.

The State Controller is precluded from disbursing funds without an enacted budget bill or emergency appropriation except for funds with associated appropriations found in statutes and provisions of law other than the budget bill. Accordingly, given the absence of a signed state Budget Act for the 2007-08 fiscal year, the funding for the Advance Apportionment was limited to the state aid portion of the revenue limits for school districts and county offices of education and the general-purpose entitlement for charter schools funded under the charter school block grant.

As provided in California Education Code Section 41330, the 2007-08 Advance Apportionment is based on the 2006-07 Second Principal Apportionment state aid. Adjustments, such as a cost-of-living increase and estimated 2007-08 statewide growth rates, authorized in statute were then applied to the state aid. A recertification of the Advance Apportionment will be made upon enactment of the Budget Act for the 2007-08 fiscal year and implementing legislation, and at that time, the monthly payments will be adjusted accordingly.

Included with this letter is a summary of the method by which the 2007-08 Advance Apportionment was calculated. A copy of this letter and the applicable apportionment exhibits are available on the California Department of Education Principal Apportionment Web page at

County superintendents should advise districts and charter schools of this apportionment as soon as possible by providing them a copy of this letter.

If you have any further questions regarding this apportionment, or need assistance, please contact the Office of Principal Apportionment and Special Education, at 916-324-4541.
