May 25, 2011

Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools:

NOTICE OF APPORTIONMENT
FROM THE COUNTY SCHOOL SERVICE FUND CONTINGENCY ACCOUNT
FISCAL YEAR 2010-11

This apportionment, in the amount of $100,000, is made from funds provided by the General Fund’s County School Service Fund Contingency Account via transfer by the State Controller to the State School Fund, in accordance with California Education Code (EC) Section 14035. The purpose of this apportionment is to reimburse county superintendents of schools for travel expenses incurred during fiscal year 2009-10 in connection with cooperative county publication projects by the county superintendent of schools or members of his or her staff.

EC Section 14035 specifies in each fiscal year that the amount credited to the General Fund’s County School Service Fund Contingency Account shall be one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000). The California Department of Education (CDE) received reimbursement claims from county offices, on the Form J-4, totaling approximately $113,000. As a result, the CDE prorated each claim, and counties are receiving in this apportionment an amount equal to 88.49 percent of their Form J-4 claim amount. This apportionment reflects the full amount of funding that each county office can expect to receive.

Warrants will be mailed to the county treasurers approximately three weeks from the date of this Notice. Funds should be deposited in the County School Service Fund of the county office of education. 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 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Office, by phone at 916-322-9128 or by e-mail at jhuarte@cde.ca.gov [Note, the preceding contact information is no longer valid and has been replaced by Tonya Holmes, Fiscal Analyst, Categorical Allocations & Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-323-6028 or by e-mail at tholmes@cde.ca.gov.]
