Allocation Formula LEA's FY 2008-09 funding for the ELPD has been calculated based upon the number of teachers who provide services to EL pupils. Teachers must be authorized by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) to provide EL services. Teacher data was taken from the Language Census Data, the R-30-LC. If a LEA met one or more of the criteria in Education Code (EC) section 99237.5(c), the number of its EL teachers was doubled. The adjusted number of EL teachers multiplied by 5.282 percent, rounded to the nearest whole number, is the number of EL teachers that will be funded for the LEA. The funded number of EL teachers multiplied by $1,057.74 yields the LEA's approximate FY 2008-09 funding for the ELPD component of the MRPDP.
