Calculations to Determine 2006-07 P-2

Calculations to the determine the 2006-07 Second Principal Apportionment (P-2).

The Second Principal (P-2) Apportionment for fiscal year 2006–07 was certified on July 2, 2007, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41335. Also certified with the P-2 Apportionment are the updated calculations of the 2005–06 apportionment (2005-06 Annual R-1) and the 2004–05 apportionment (2004–05 Annual R-3). The details used in the calculation of the apportionments are described below.

School Districts and County Offices of Education (Fiscal Year 2006–07)

The average daily attendance (ADA) and other data reported on the Principal Apportionment Revenue software were used to calculate this apportionment. Revenue limits were increased by the 2006–07 cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) of 5.92 percent and an equalization adjustment (for school districts). Assembly Bill (AB) 1802 (Chapter 79, Statutes of 2006) eliminated revenue limit deficits for school districts and county offices of education (COEs).

Inflation (Cost-of-living) Adjustment: The statutory COLA for 2006–07 is 5.92 percent (EC Sections 42238 and 42238.1). The amounts below reflect multiplying the 2005–06 statewide average base revenue limit per ADA for each type of district by 5.92 percent.

Equalization Adjustment: An adjustment to the base revenue limit rate was made to those school districts whose 2005–06 base revenue limit per unit of ADA fell below the 2005–06 base revenue limit per ADA above which fall not more than ten percent of the total statewide units of ADA for each category as displayed below. AB 1802 appropriated $350 million for purposes of this adjustment, determined pursuant to EC Section 42238.48. A factor of 0.734169037 was applied to each adjustment to prorate entitlements down to the appropriation. The calculation details are displayed on the Equalization Adjustment exhibit.

Adult Education: The entitlement for adult education was calculated by multiplying the Adult Education 2006–07 base revenue limit per ADA by the lesser of the 2005–06 Annual reported ADA or the 2006–07 adult education ADA cap, equal to the 2005–06 adult education ADA cap plus a growth factor of 2.5 percent. The 5.92 percent COLA was added to the 2005–06 base revenue limit per ADA to establish the rate for 2006–07.

Apprentice Program: Funding was calculated by multiplying the lesser of the 2006–07 reported apprentice hours or the 2006–07 approved (cap) apprentice hours by the hourly rate of $4.86.

Beginning Teacher Salary (BTS):

            BTS #1: Funding was calculated by multiplying the 2005–06 P-2 ADA by $11.22 (prior year rate of $10.59 increased by the 5.92 percent COLA). Pursuant to statute, the same calculation was performed separately for Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/P) ADA. The two totals were combined and added to the revenue limit.

            BTS #2: Funding for districts and COEs that chose option one was calculated by multiplying the 2006–07 P-2 ADA by $7.32 (prior year rate of $6.91 increased by the 5.92 percent COLA). Funding for districts and COEs that chose option two was calculated by multiplying each agency’s individual prior year rate by the 5.92 percent COLA, and multiplying the new rate by the reported 2006–07 P-2 ADA. The same calculations were performed separately for ROC/P ADA. Adult and Block Grant funded charter school ADA were excluded in all calculations.

Community Day School: Funding was based on the 2006–07 P-2 ADA for community day schools. Schools with newly approved small school waivers will receive the amount for one certificated teacher displayed on the necessary small schools funding table. Due to insufficient funding, a proration factor of 0.9640615468 was applied to the funding for the 5th and 6th hours (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), the approved small school waiver (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), and the 7th and 8th hours.

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE): Funding was calculated by multiplying the 2005–06 P-2 ADA by the higher of the school district’s and county office’s 1999–2000 per ADA funding rate or the 2006–07 P-2 statewide per ADA funding rate of $9.58, which was calculated by dividing the total funds appropriated for GATE in the 2006 Budget Act by the total prior year P-2 ADA for the eligible school districts and county offices that reported participation in the current year. Agencies with fewer than 1,500 ADA received the greater of the funding amount as calculated above, a minimum funding guarantee of $3,050, or their 1998–99 GATE allowance, as increased by annual COLAs.

The 2006 Budget Act appropriated $49.186 million for GATE and AB 1802 authorized an additional $4.294 million deferred to fiscal year 2007–08, for a total funding of $53.480. Total statewide claims at 2006–07 P-2 were $56.390 million, resulting in a proration factor of 0.9483881225.

Necessary Small Schools: The Allowance for Necessary Small Schools is based on the combination of ADA and the number of full-time teachers (for elementary schools) or the number of certificated employees (for high schools), whichever provides the lesser amount. The allowance amounts, shown in the following tables, reflect the 5.92 percent COLA for 2006-07:

Note: Fractional ADA units of .5 and above are rounded up, and those below .5 are rounded down.

Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) Reduction: $39.468 million was appropriated in 2006–07 to reduce (buyout) the PERS Reduction. This amount was sufficient to reduce the PERS Reduction by 0.1469642296, thereby increasing the total revenue limit for school districts and county offices.

Regional Occupational Centers/Programs (ROC/P): The base funding for this program is equal to the ROC/P 2006–07 base revenue limit per ADA multiplied by the lesser of the 2005–06 Annual reported ADA or the 2006–07 ROC/P ADA cap. A 5.92 percent COLA (applied to the prior year Statewide Average Revenue Limit per Growth ADA) of $192.59 per ADA was added to the prior year weighted average base revenue limit per ADA to establish the 2006-07 base revenue limit per ADA.

Supplemental Instructional Programs: The funding for these programs, shown below, is $3.90 per hour of 2006–07 P-2 pupil attendance in the supplemental instructional programs, subject to a maximum number of hours (“cap”) for Core and Low Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) and At-Risk of Retention.

Districts for which the October 2005 enrollment was less than 500 hours (“small districts”) and that offered between 1,500 to 2,138 hours of supplemental instruction were funded at $8,337. Small districts that offered less than 1,500 hours had their funding reduced proportionately, at a funding rate of $5.56 per hour; those that offered more than 2,138 hours were funded at the $3.90 hourly rate.

The 2006 Budget Act appropriated $74.955 million for this program. Statewide claims totaled $101.993 million, resulting in a proration factor of 0.734901222.

Direct Services: Funding equals the county office’s 2005–06 rate per ADA for direct services funding, increased by the 5.92 percent COLA, multiplied by the total of the 2005-06 Annual ADA for all applicable school districts, as follows:

Charter schools ADA units are included in the calculation.

Other County Service Fund Operations: Funding equals the COE’s 2005–06 rate per ADA, increased by the 5.92 percent COLA, multiplied by the total of the 2005–06 Annual ADA for the COE and those for the school districts and charter schools in the county. This amount will be updated using the 2006–07 Annual ADA at the 2007–2008 P-1 certification.

Special Education (Fiscal Year 2006–07)

Assembly Bill (AB) 602 Funding: The prior year’s supplemental base rate of $9.68 was added to the prior year statewide target rate, resulting in a rate of $412.47. The COLA of 5.92 percent on this amount equals $24.42, resulting in a 2006–07 statewide target rate of $436.89. Similar to prior year, $50.6 million was added as a $8.37 supplement to each Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) base rate. All 2006–07 AB 602 entitlements, i.e., base, COLA, growth, special disabilities adjustment, and program specialist/regionalized services, are fully funded at 2006–07 P-2. Again, funding for pre-referral mental health services are outside of the principal apportionment in 2006–07 and are being apportioned separately.

Out-of-Home Care (OHC): The 2006–07 Budget Act appropriated $196.3 million for the third year of this program, which replaced the 100 percent reimbursement funding for nonpublic school and agency tuition for students residing in licensed children’s institutions (NPS/LCI). The funding for 2006–07 P-2 Apportionment is based on the bed and pupil counts data as of April 1, 2007. In addition, fiscal year 2006–07 is the first year of the hold harmless phase-out. Specifically, if a SELPA’s 2006–07 OHC funding entitlement is less than the amount it received for the 2005–06 fiscal year, the SELPA shall receive the same amount it received for the 2005–06 fiscal year less 20 percent of the difference between the two amounts (EC Section 56836.173(c)). Similar to prior years, any SELPA with a 2006–07 funding entitlement greater than the amount received for the prior year shall receive the same amount it received for the prior year plus a portion of the difference between the two amounts, based on proration factor of 0.3471189415.

Infant (ages two and younger) Program: Total funding apportioned for the Infant Program for 2006–07 increased by about seven percent from 2005–06, from $61,122,685 to $65,387,903. Following are the 2006–07 Infant Program statewide average unit rates:

Charter Schools

The 2006–07 P-2 ADA and other data reported on the Principal Apportionment Revenue software were used to calculate this apportionment. In addition, the non-classroom based ADA was adjusted for charter schools that received a determination of funding from the State Board of Education. The apportionment for charter schools was calculated using two funding models – the district or county office revenue limit and the block grant funding model. The School District Revenue Limit report provides the computation for a school district in which all schools have been converted to charter schools pursuant to EC Section 47606 and funded through the district revenue limit model. There is no special exhibit for charter schools funded through the county revenue limit model; the funding for these charter schools is included in the County Revenue Limit report. Charter School Block Grant Funding and Charter School Categorical Block Grant Funding reports provide the computations for charter schools that are funded through the block grant funding model. Funding information for block grant funded charter schools is provided on the Principal Apportionment Summary. The detail for adjustments to prior years for block grant charter schools is provided on the Prior Year Corrections report. Funding entitlements change, in general, to reflect revised ADA or updated property tax information. Only those charter schools with prior changes (“corrections”) are displayed.

The apportionment also includes funding adjustments to charter schools that have received an overpayment of state aid in current and prior years due to one or more changes in the block grant rates, ADA, local revenue, or data used in the apportionment calculations. The overpaid amounts are displayed in Lines A-22 and A-23 on the Principal Apportionment Summary. The overpayment is a liability owed to the State and, for most charter schools, will be collected through the apportionment process in the 2007–08 fiscal year. In some cases, an invoice will be sent directly to the charter school.

The general purpose (block grant) amounts per ADA are based on statewide average revenue limits for the applicable grade levels. These amounts are calculated at each apportionment and the 2006–07 P-2 Apportionment amounts are as follows:

Grade Level Amounts
Kindergarten and Grades One through Three $5,344
Grades Four through Six $5,424
Grades Seven through Eight $5,580
Grades Nine through Twelve $6,474

Pursuant to AB 740 (Chapter 359, Statutes of 2005) and the 2006 Budget Act, a single funding rate of $400 shall be used per ADA for the categorical block grant program for fiscal year 2006–07.

AB 1802 and Senate Bill (SB) 1131 (Chapter 371, Statutes of 2006) revised the funding formula effective in fiscal year 2006–07 for the Economic Impact Aid (EIA) Program. AB 1802 revised the EIA funding formula for charter schools and SB 1131 made further revisions to the data that charter schools are required to report for use in the EIA formula. The funding for the in lieu of EIA is $303 per eligible educationally disadvantaged pupil. The minimum grant amounts are $5,500 for one to ten eligible pupils and $8,300 for eleven or more eligible pupils.

PRIOR YEARS – The following provides updates to the 2005–06 and 2004–05 apportionments certified at the same time as the 2006–07 P-1 Apportionment. The types of data used and the method of calculating the apportionment are similar to those given above unless specified.

2005–06 Annual R-1
School Districts and County Offices of Education (Fiscal Year 2005–06)

Adult Education: Adult education funding was calculated using the lesser of the 2005–06 Annual reported ADA or the 2005–06 adult education ADA cap, equal to the 2004–05 adult education ADA cap plus a growth factor of 2.5 percent.

Pursuant to AB 23 (Chapter 502, Statutes of 2005), school districts and COEs that earned ADA above the cap received additional funds. The 2005 Budget Act and SB 65 appropriated a total of $647.950 million for the program. Total statewide claims to date were $622.311 million. As a result, the agencies received $2,389.22 for each excess ADA over cap. (This funding is made at the Annual Apportionment only.)

An additional $5.7 million was allocated at P-2 for Cal-WORKS ADA funding.

Community Day Schools: Funding was based on the 2005–06 Annual ADA for community day schools. Due to insufficient funding appropriated for the program in the 2005 Budget Act, a proration factor of 0.9399455000 was applied to the funding for the 5th and 6th hours ADA (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), the approved small school waiver (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), and the 7th and 8th hours.

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE): Statewide claims for the 2005–06 Annual R-1 totaled $54.130 million. With a $50.491 million appropriation, a proration factor of 0.9327736370 was applied.

Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) Reduction: The restoration rate resulting from the $37.885 million appropriated to reduce the PERS Reduction in 2005‑06 was 0.1560551674 of the total PERS adjustment.

Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/P): Base funding equals the lesser of the 2005–06 Annual reported ADA or the 2005–06 ROC/P ADA cap multiplied by the 2005–06 revenue limit. A 4.23 percent COLA of $132.03 was added to the weighted base revenue limit increasing the 2005–06 revenue limit. The P-2 apportionment included approximately $4 million in additional funding for Cal-WORKS ADA.

Supplemental Instructional Programs:The funding for these programs is based on the 2005–06 Annual hours of attendance in the supplemental instructional programs.

Other County Service Fund Operations: Funding to COEs was based on the 2005–06 Annual ADA of the districts, COEs, and charter schools.

Special Education (Fiscal years 2005–06 and 2004–05)

Assembly Bill (AB) 602 Funding: Both 2005–06 (Annual R-1) and 2004–05 (Annual R-3) AB 602 entitlements are fully funded at the 2006–07 P-2 Apportionment. The only exception is claims for the Extraordinary Cost Pool, with proration factors of 0.40 and 0.50 for 2005–06 and 2004–05, respectively.

Out-of-Home Care (OHC): The 2005–06 (Annual R-1) and 2004–05 (Annual R-3) entitlements remained the same as in the prior apportionment period. The OHC proration factors are 0.63 and 0.44 for 2005-06 and 2004-05, respectively.

Infant (ages two and younger) Program: The 2005–06 (Annual R-1) and 2004–05 (Annual R-3) entitlements remained the same as in the prior apportionment period: $61,122,685 for 2005–06 and $56,907,144 for 2004–05.

2004–05 Annual R-3
School Districts and County Offices of Education (Fiscal Year 2004–05)

Adult Education: Pursuant to Assembly Bill (AB) 1266 (Chapter 573, Statutes of 2003), the entitlement for adult education was calculated using the lesser of the 2004–05 Annual reported ADA or the 2003–04 fundable adult education ADA cap, increased by a growth factor of 2.5 percent. The 2004–05 adult education base revenue limit COLA/equalization amount was calculated pursuant to EC Section 52616.16 and was fully equalized.

Also, pursuant to AB 23, school districts and COEs that earned ADA above their cap received additional funding. The 2004 Budget Act appropriated a total of $606.492 million for the program; however, total statewide claims to date were $592.152 million. As a result, the agencies received $2,061.74 for each excess ADA over Cap.

Community Day Schools: Funding was based on the 2004–05 Annual ADA for community day schools. Due to insufficient funding appropriated for the program in the 2004 Budget Act, a proration factor of 0.9244291860 was applied to the funding for 5th and 6th hours ADA (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), the approved small school waiver (for pupils other than mandatory expelled), and the 7th and 8th hours.

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE): Statewide claims at 2004–05 Annual totaled $53.654 million. Based on the $48.110 million appropriation, a proration factor of 0.896669199900 was applied.

Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) Reduction: The restoration rate resulting from the $36.177 million appropriated by the 2004 Budget Act (Chapter 208, Statutes of 2004) to reduce the PERS reduction was 0.1994941330 of the total PERS adjustment.

Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/P): Base funding equals the lesser of the 2004–05 Annual reported ADA or the 2004–05 ROC/P ADA cap multiplied by the 2004–05 revenue limit. A 2.41 percent COLA of $73.45 was added to the weighted base revenue limit to calculate the 2004–05 revenue limit.

Supplemental Instructional Programs:The funding for these programs is based on the 2004–05 Annual hours of attendance in the supplemental instructional programs.

Other County Service Fund Operations: Funding to COEs was based on the 2004–05 Annual ADA of the districts, COEs, and charter schools.
