Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:
This apportionment, in the amount of $798,096, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-144-0001, Provision 1, Chief Business Officer (CBO) Training Program, of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1 of the Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), as amended by Assembly Bill 1 of the Fourth Extraordinary Session (Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009).
County superintendents of schools are requested to immediately inform recipients of this apportionment. Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. To view the schedule of apportionment, please visit the California Department of Education Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/.
California Education Code (EC) Section 42605 provides that funds allocated in fiscal years 2009-10 through 2012-13 for specified categorical programs be allocated in an amount that is based on the same relative proportion that the local educational agency (LEA) received in the 2008-09 fiscal year. This apportionment provides 100 percent of each LEA’s 2009-10 CBO Training Program entitlement, less the reduction in Control Section 12.42 of the Budget Act of 2009.
EC Section 42605 also 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 the CBO Training Program. School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools may continue to use the funds formerly restricted to this program for any educational purpose. Program and funding requirements as otherwise provided in statute, regulation, and budget act provisional language associated with the funding are not in effect. 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.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Kathy Mathews, Education Fiscal Services Consultant, School Fiscal Services Division, at 916-322-1647 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
