Dear Select County Superintendents, Auditors, and Treasurers:
Pursuant to EC Section 47614.5, funding appropriated in the 2011–12 fiscal year must first be used to reimburse eligible charter schools for 2010–11 unreimbursed facilities rent and lease expenditures and then be used to fund eligible charter schools for 2011–12. To ensure that sufficient funds remain to fund unreimbursed 2010–11 expenses, a factor of 50 percent was applied to the payment each charter school will receive in this apportionment.
For purposes of determining the 2011–12 advance apportionment, the funding is based on the charter school’s 2010–11 annualized funding amount to date. Subsequent apportionments will be made as current year eligibility and funding data and other information become available. Throughout the apportionment process, charter schools that have been overpaid or determined to be ineligible will be invoiced.
The amount to be allocated to each eligible charter school is separately identified on the enclosed schedule (Enclosure 1). Funding for direct-funded charter schools is paid directly to the school; funding for locally funded charter schools is paid to the authorizing local educational agency (LEA).
Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this notice. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 6030, Charter Schools Facilities Lease, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue. County superintendents of schools are requested to inform charter schools and their authorizing LEAs immediately of this apportionment.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, or the Charter School Facility Grant Program, please contact the Charter Schools Division, by phone at 916‑322‑6029 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
