Dear County Superintendents of Schools and Treasurers:
This apportionment, in the amount of $157,774,841, is made from funds provided by Item 6110-128-0001 of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), as amended by Assembly Bill 1 (Chapter 1, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statues of 2009). These funds support the Economic Impact Aid (EIA) program pursuant to California Education Code sections 54020 through 54028.
County superintendents of schools are requested to immediately notify the local educational agencies (LEAs) in their county of the information included in this apportionment. This letter, along with the Schedule of Apportionment that shows the apportionment amount for each LEA, is posted on the California Department of Education (CDE) Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/eia09result.asp.
This apportionment equals 40 percent of the school districts’ actual 2009-10 entitlement, less 2009-10 funds previously paid. Actual 2009-10 EIA entitlements are based on the EIA eligible pupil counts that apply to 2009-10 funding. The amounts certified in the First October apportionment were estimated, based on the EIA eligible pupil counts used to calculate the 2008-09 funding. It is anticipated that additional EIA apportionments of 20percent each will be made in January, March, and May 2010.
Details for the 2009-10 EIA entitlements can be found at the CDE Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/documents/eia09entsdec09.xls. Under the EIA formula, each district receives funding based on its EIA per-pupil funding rate, multiplied by its EIA eligible pupil count. Each district’s 2009-10 per-pupil rate remains unchanged from 2008-09. The increase or decrease to a district’s 2009-10 EIA funding is solely due to an increase or decrease in the district’s EIA eligible pupil count, which is the sum of the following:
EIA funds are no longer allocated through the Special Purpose Apportionment.
There is no restriction on the amount of EIA funds that may be carried over from year to year. For standardized account code structure (SACS) coding, use Resource Code 7090, Economic Impact Aid (EIA), or Resource Code 7091, Economic Impact Aid: Limited English Proficiency (LEP), and Revenue Object Code 8311, Other State Apportionments-Current Year.
