January 2, 2011
Dear County Superintendents of Schools:
NOTICE OF THE FIRST APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL SUPPLEMENTAL COUNSELING PROGRAM
FISCAL YEAR 2009-10 FUNDS
(AMOUNTS REVERTED FROM 2008-09)
This apportionment, in the amount of $434,296, is made from funds provided by Item 6110-108-0001, Middle and High School Supplemental Counseling Program, 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), and subdivisions (a) and (f) of Section 5 of Assembly Bill 3 of the Fourth Extraordinary Session (Chapter 3, Statutes of 2009).
Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately three weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.
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 will be 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, provide links to the letter and schedules, and request that the e-mail be forwarded to the school districts and charter schools in the county.
This apportionment reflects the calculation of final entitlements for fiscal year 2008-09 and is equal to the final entitlement less funds apportioned previously to each participant.
California Education Code (EC) Section 42605 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 Middle and High School Supplemental Counseling Program. School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools may now use the funds formerly restricted to this program for any educational purpose. These funds are therefore unrestricted and should be accounted for as such. Program and funding requirements as otherwise provided in statute, regulation, and budget act provisional language associated with the funding are not in effect.
