Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:

NOTICE OF THE FIRST APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATION FEES PROGRAM
FISCAL YEAR 2007-08

This apportionment, in the amount of $1,793,000, is made from funds provided by Schedule (2) of Item 6110-240-0001 of the Budget Act of 2007 (Chapter 171, Statutes of 2007) in support of the Advanced Placement Examination Fees Program. The funds are apportioned to local educational agencies (LEAs) in reimbursement of student test fees. The payment to each LEA is based on the number of eligible, low-income high school students taking advanced placement examinations pursuant to California Education Code (EC), commencing with Section 52240.

County superintendents of schools are requested to inform LEAs immediately of this apportionment. 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 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue. To view the schedule of apportionment, please visit the California Department of Education Categorical Allocations Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/.

The state’s Advanced Placement Examination Fees Program is included in the charter school block grant funding model pursuant to EC Section 47633 et seq. Therefore, charter schools that are participating in the funding model will receive their funding for this program as part of the categorical component of the charter school block grant, which is allocated as part of the principal apportionment. Charter schools that are not participating in the charter school block grant funding model will receive their funding for this program through their chartering agency.
