Allocation Formula The reimbursement amount for each eligible teacher trained is $2,500 for the first sequence of 120 hours of training in each subject, up to the 3.16 percent funding cap for fiscal year (FY) 2007-08. The teacher eligibility list shows this amount for each LEA in the last column of the table. Please note, if an LEA does not claim funding up to the 3.16 percent level during FY 2007-08, the balance does not carry forward into the next fiscal year. Claims for training completed during 2007-08 but not submitted to CDE until a subsequent fiscal year will be paid only if funding is available in the original year’s appropriation. LEAs may also receive reimbursement for teachers trained in excess of the cap for the first 120-hour sequence of SB 472 training in reading, mathematics, or both. Funding appropriated in 2007-08 that has not been claimed by LEAs will be redirected to LEAs that have trained teachers in excess of the 3.16 percent cap during 2007-08.
