Allocation Formula Funds are apportioned based on ADA reported for the second principal apportionment (P-2). The initial apportionment of 50 percent of the appropriated funds is calculated based on 2013-14 P-2 statewide SELPA ADA of 5,989,939.99. An appropriate adjustment is made, consistent with existing law, for the Los Angeles Juvenile Court and Community School SELPA. A second apportionment of 25 percent of the appropriated funds, also based off of 2013-14 ADA, will be made in Spring 2015. Funding will be adjusted to reflect the ADA reported for 2014-15 P-2 and the remaining funds will be apportioned in Summer 2015.
