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.
