An appropriate adjustment is made, consistent with existing law, for the Los Angeles Juvenile Court and Community School SELPA. A second apportionment of 25% of the appropriated funds, also based off of 2010-11 ADA, will be made in Spring 2012. Funding will be adjusted to reflect the ADA reported for 2011-12 P-2 and the remaining funds will be apportioned in Summer 2012.
