Dear County Superintendents of Schools:
2012−13 SECOND PRINCIPAL APPORTIONMENT
In mid-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 Second Principal (P-2) Apportionment. The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-2 on June 26, 2013, pursuant to EC Section 41335. The statewide total was $18,275,266,659.
The P-2 Apportionment includes funding for 2012−13 as well as updated funding for the 2011−12 apportionment (2011−12 Annual R1), the 2010−11 apportionment (2010−11 Annual R3), and adjustments to other prior-year apportionments, as necessary.
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/pa1213.asp. Additional exhibits for Special Education can be obtained under Allocations/Apportionments 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 or the Office of Charter Apportionments and District Reorganization by phone at 916-324-4541 or by e-mail at PASE@cde.ca.gov.
