Dear County Superintendents of Schools:
This apportionment, in the amount of $3,126,996, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-144-0001, Administrator Training Program, of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009, Third Extraordinary Session as amended by Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009, Fourth Extraordinary Session). Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice.
Beginning in fiscal year 2010–11, letters of apportionment from the California Department of Education’s (CDE) School Fiscal Services Division are no longer being mailed to the county superintendents of schools. Accordingly, the CDE has sent an e-mail to each county superintendent, addressed to the county’s CDEfisc e-mail address, to inform him or her of this apportionment. The e-mail contained a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/ where, under the program name, the letter and schedule for this apportionment are posted. The CDE requested that the e-mail be forwarded to all school districts in the county.
California Education Code (EC) Section 42605 authorizes complete flexibility by a school district, county office of education, and charter school 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 this program. Program and funding requirements as otherwise provided in statute, regulation, and budget act provisional language associated with the funding are not in effect. EC Section 42605 also provided that funds for the programs made flexible be allocated in 2009–10 through 2012–13 based on the relative share that each local educational agency (LEA) received of funds allocated for the 2008–09 fiscal year. The funds are therefore unrestricted and should be accounted for as such. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.
This apportionment provides 100 percent of each LEA’s 2009–10 Administrator Training Program entitlement. These entitlements were calculated based on the relative share that each LEA received of 2008–09 program funds, then reduced to reflect the funding decrease enacted in Control Section 12.42 of the Budget Act of 2009.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
