Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools:
This apportionment, in the amount of $1,667,975, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-234-0001 of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1 of the Third Extraordinary Session and Chapter 1 of the Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009) and Section 38 of Senate Bill (SB) 4 of the Third Extraordinary Session (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), as amended by Section 35 of Assembly Bill (AB) 1610 (Chapter 724, Statutes of 2010) in support of the Kindergarten and Grades One Through Three Class Size Reduction (K-3 CSR) Program. $1,043,906 is being paid from Item 6110-234-0001, and $624,069 is being paid from Section 38 of SB 4.
The county superintendents of schools were notified of this apportionment by e-mail which was sent to their CDEfisc e-mail addresses. The California Department of Education (CDE) requested that the e-mail be forwarded to the school districts and charter schools in the county, and included the link to this letter and the apportionment schedule which are posted on the CDE Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/k3csr.asp under fiscal year 2009–10.
This apportionment is prorated pursuant to Section 35 of AB 1610, which cut the K-3 CSR appropriation of funds deferred from 2009–10 to 2010–11 from $570 million to $230 million (a $340 million decrease). The prorated apportionment for each school district is based on actual enrollment in participating classes as submitted on the revised Form J‑7CSR, less the prorated reduction, less any amounts received in the November 2009 and February 2010 Advance Apportionments, the June, July, and September 2010 Final Apportionments, and the previous recovery of overpayments from fiscal year 2010–11 funds in February 2011 and from fiscal year 2011–12 (amounts deferred from fiscal year 2010–11) funds in July 2011. 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.
