Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, Treasurers, and Special Education Local Plan Area Directors:
Towards the end of June, county treasurers will receive a warrant that reflects a portion of state aid for elementary, high, and unified school districts; charter schools; and county offices of education for programs included in the 2009-10 Second Principal (P-2) Apportionment. The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-2 on June 22, 2010, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41335. The statewide total was $23,250,108,242. The amount not paid in June will be paid in July except a portion of the July payment will be deferred for up to 60 days in order to meet the requirements of Government Code Section 16326.
This apportionment includes funding for 2009-10 as well as updated funding for the 2008-09 apportionment (2008-09 Annual R1), the 2007-08 apportionment (2007-08 Annual R3), 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-2 Apportionment, and the apportionment exhibits that provide detail related to the P-2 Apportionment are available on the CDE Web site 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 e-mail at PASE@cde.ca.gov.
