Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:

NOTICE OF SPECIAL APPORTIONMENT FOR NEWLY OPERATIONAL
 CHARTER SCHOOLS FISCAL YEAR 2009-10

This special apportionment, in the amount of $36,543,924, is made in accordance with California Education Code (EC) Section 47652 for fiscal year 2009-10. The purpose of this apportionment is to fund new charter schools that will begin operation after the beginning of the 2009-10 fiscal year. These funds are, in effect, an advance apportionment.

The amount to be received in this September apportionment is for the months of July 2009 through November 2009 in the amount of $28,402,436 and equals 37 percent of the charter school’s projected total general-purpose state aid and categorical state aid for the 2009-10 fiscal year. Also included is $8,141,488 to school districts that transfer to charter schools funding in lieu of property taxes (EC Section 47635) for the months of August 2009 through November 2009, which equals 28 percent of the charter school’s projected total funds in lieu of property taxes for the 2009-10 fiscal year. This special apportionment is based on the charter school’s estimated current year second principal apportionment average daily attendance.

The warrants should be mailed by the State Controller’s Office to the County Treasurer within three weeks from the date of this Letter. The County Treasurer of each county is requested to immediately deposit the amount received into the fund or account of the participating local educational agencies or charter schools at the direction of the County Superintendent of Schools.
