Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:
This apportionment, in the amount of $1,293,845,632, is made from funds provided by Item 6110-234-0001 of the Budget Act of 2006 (Chapter 47, Statutes of 2006) in support of the Kindergarten THrough Grade Three Class Size Reduction (k-3 CSR) Program. The apportionment for each local educational agency (LEA) is based on enrollment estimates submitted on the K-3 CSR application, less any amount received in the September 2006 advance apportionment. Maximum funding for this apportionment is based on prior year California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) enrollment counts.
Adjustments will be made to the estimated (provisional) funding after actual program enrollment counts, submitted on form J-7CSR, are processed in May 2007. Details regarding the submission of form J-7CSR will be posted on the CSR Forms and Instructions Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/cs/k3/formsinst.asp.
Direct-funded and locally funded charter schools that applied for the K-3 CSR Program on their own behalf are listed separately on the enclosed apportionment schedule. Funding for charter schools that did not apply on their own behalf is included in the chartering agency's entitlement if the chartering agency included charter school enrollment data in its application.
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 1300, Class Size Reduction, Grades K-3 or Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and revenue Object Code 8434, Class Size Reduction, Grades K-3. County superintendents of schools are requested to inform LEAs, including applicant charter schools, immediately of this apportionment.
