Allocation Formula For fiscal year 2010-11, these funds are now flexible. From fiscal years 2008-09 through 2012-13, funding for the flexible programs will be based on base year 2007-08 or 2008-09 funding levels as specified in Education Code Section 42605. In the current state fiscal year, each LEA will receive the same percentage of the available funding as it received in the base year.
