Ltr8-08: K-3 CSR
Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools:
NOTICE OF REVISION OF THE FINAL APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
KINDERGARTEN AND GRADES ONE THROUGH THREE
CLASS SIZE REDUCTION PROGRAM
FISCAL YEAR 2008-09
This apportionment, in the amount of $26,775, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-234-0001 of the Budget Act of 2008 (Chapters 268 and 269, Statutes of 2008 as amended by Senate Bill 4 of the Third Extraordinary Session, Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009) in support of the Kindergarten and Grades One Through Three Class Size Reduction (K-3 CSR) Program.
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. Instead, county superintendents are being notified of each apportionment by e-mail. 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 and fiscal year 2008-09, the letter and schedule for this apportionment are posted. The CDE requested that the e-mail be forwarded to the school districts and charter schools in the county.
The apportionment for each school district is based on actual enrollment in participating classes as submitted on the revised Form J-7CSR, less any amounts received in the November 2008 Advance Apportionment, the April, May, and July 2009 Provisional Apportionments, and the April 2010 Final Apportionment. Funding for charter schools that did not apply on their own behalf is included in the authorizing entity’s entitlement if the entity included charter school enrollment data in its Form J-7CSR.
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 1300, Class Size Reduction, Grades K-3 or Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8434, Class Size Reduction, Grades K-3.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Rebecca Lee, Fiscal Consultant, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Office, by phone at 916-324-4533 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
