Dear Select County Superintendents, Auditors, and Treasurers:
This apportionment reflects a second advance payment of 25 percent of the 2011–12 annualized funding amounts to date, and is made to those charter schools that met the 2011–12 requirement that 70 percent or more of their student population is eligible for free or reduced-price meals. For newly operational charter schools, advance funding is based on the charter school’s report of its 2011–12, 20-Day attendance data as certified by the California Department of Education. For all other charter schools included in this apportionment, advance funding is based on the charter school’s 2010–11 ADA, as certified at the 2010–11 P2 apportionment. The 2011–12 annualized funding amounts will be recalculated to reflect classroom based ADA as certified at the 2011–12 P2 apportionment and approved 2011–12 facility expenses. The final payment to each charter school will be adjusted accordingly. 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.
