Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/Ps) provide valuable career and technical education to high school students 16 years of age and older, and adult students so they can (1) enter the workforce with skills and competencies to be successful; (2) pursue advanced training in postsecondary educational institutions; or (3) upgrade existing skills and knowledge. ROC/P funds for local educational agencies (LEAs) are administered through the California Department of Education Principal Apportionment process.

Funding for 2008-09 consists of several components:
(1) Base funding is equal to the 2008-09 base revenue limit per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the lesser of 2007-08 funded or the 2008-09 Annual ADA reported through the Principal Apportionment software. No COLA was appropriated for this program; therefore the base revenue limit per ADA for 2008-09 will be the prior year weighed average base revenue limit. The 2007-08 funded ADA is the base ADA plus the average growth and excess ADA;
(2) The funds appropriated for this program reflect a reduction to the base funding of 0.55 percent for a statewide decline in 11th and 12th grade ADA. If sufficient funding is not available, a proration factor will be applied to the base funding; and
(3) No growth fund was appropriated for allowable growth ADA.
