Letter Head: Jack O'Connell, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, California Department of Education

November 1, 2010

Dear American Indian Education Centers:

NOTICE OF THE FIRST APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
AMERICAN INDIAN EDUCATION CENTERS
FISCAL YEAR 2010-11

This apportionment, in the amount of $2,730,751, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-151-0001, American Indian Education Centers, of the Budget Act of 2010 (Chapter 712, Statutes of 2010).

A warrant will be mailed to the Centers approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. The schedule of apportionment is posted to the California Department of Education Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/ under the program name, fiscal year 2010-11, and first apportionment.

California Education Code (EC) Section 42605 authorizes complete flexibility in the use of funds appropriated in the state budget for fiscal years 2008-09 through 2012-13 for numerous budget items, including the funds formerly restricted to the American Indian Education Centers Program. Program and funding requirements as otherwise provided in statute, regulation, and budget act provisional language associated with the funding are not in effect. The Centers may now use the funds formerly restricted to this program for any educational purpose. To assure that the funds are spent on an educational purpose, expenditures may be subject to audit.

Each Center’s entitlement to 2010-11 funds was calculated based on the same relative proportion of funds that each Center received in the base year of funding. This apportionment pays each Center 75 percent of its fiscal year 2010-11 entitlement. The remaining amount will be paid in April 2011.

If you wish to continue to use these funds to provide academic and cultural support services to American Indian students and have questions regarding the provision of those services, please contact Judy Delgado, Program Consultant, English Learner and Curriculum Support Division by phone at 916-319-0506 or by e-mail at judelgado@cde.ca.gov. If you have questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Janice Huarte, Fiscal Analyst, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Office by phone at 916-322-9128 or by e-mail at jhuarte@cde.ca.gov [Note, the preceding contact information is no longer valid and has been replaced by Tonya Holmes, Fiscal Analyst, Categorical Allocations & Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-323-6028 or by e-mail at tholmes@cde.ca.gov.].
