Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, Treasurers, and Special Education Local Plan Area Directors:
Towards the end of February, 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 2009-10 First Principal (P-1) Apportionment. The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-1 on February 19, 2010, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41332. The statewide total was $22,935,656,562.
This apportionment includes funding for 2009-10 as well as updated funding for the 2008-09 apportionment (2008-09 Annual), the 2007-08 apportionment (2007-08 Annual R2), and adjustments to other prior-year apportionments, as necessary.
A copy of this letter, a summary of the calculations that the CDE used in the P-1 Apportionment, and the apportionment exhibits that provide detail related to the P-1 Apportionment are available on the CDE website at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/pa0910.asp. 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
