Special Education AB 602 Apportionment
Funding DescriptionThe AB 602 Funding Model replaced and simplified the previous J-50 Funding Model in FY 1998-99 for special education funding with the legislative intent of ensuring greater equity in funding among Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs). The model requires fiscal and program accountability. Funding is based on SELPAs’ average daily attendance (ADA).

The AB 602 funding model provides funding to the SELPAs based on a rate per unit of ADA. No cost-of-living adjustment is provided this fiscal year.
The Out-of-Home Care (OHC) Program is another major component of the AB 602 funding model. SELPAs’ OHC entitlements are calculated based on the fiscal year 2012-13 rate (per bed or per pupil) for the type of OHC service provided, times the bed count or pupil count as of April 1st of the fiscal year (Refer to the OHC Funding Profile).
