Dear County Superintendents of Schools:
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 2012–13 First Principal (P-1) Apportionment. The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-1 on February 20, 2013, pursuant to California Education Code Section 41332. The statewide total was $19,001,713,381.
This apportionment includes funding for 2012–13 as well as updated funding for the 2011–12 apportionment (2011–12 Annual), the 2010–11 apportionment (2010–11 Annual R2), and adjustments to other prior-year apportionments, as necessary.
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 http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/pa1213.asp. Additional exhibits for Special Education can be obtained under Allocations/Apportionments on the web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/se/. County superintendents of schools should advise school districts and charter schools immediately of this apportionment. If you need assistance, or have any further questions, please contact the Office of Principal Apportionment and Special Education by phone at 916-324-4541 or by e-mail at PASE@cde.ca.gov.
