Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, Treasurers, and Special Education Local Plan Area Directors:
In late July, county treasurers will receive a warrant that reflects state aid for elementary, high, and unified school districts; charter schools; and county offices of education for programs included in the 2008-09 Second Principal (P-2) Apportionment. The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-2 on July 2, 2009, pursuant to California Education Code Section 41335. The statewide total was $27,349,951,500.
This apportionment includes funding for 2008-09 as well as updated funding for the 2007-08 apportionment (2007-08 Annual R1), the 2006-07 apportionment (2006-07 Annual R3), and adjustments to other prior year apportionments, as necessary.
Included with this letter is a summary of the calculations that the CDE used in the P-2 Apportionment. A copy of this letter and the apportionment exhibits that provide detail related to the P-2 Apportionment are available on the CDE’s Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/. Additional exhibits for Special Education can be obtained under Allocations/Apportionments at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/se/.
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 need assistance, or have any further questions, please contact the Office of Principal Apportionment and Special Education at 916-324-4541 or by e-mail at PASE@cde.ca.gov.
