Dear El Dorado and Madera County Superintendents of Schools:
This apportionment, in the amount of $1,888, is made from funds provided in Provision 2 of Item 6110-488-0001 of the Budget Act of 2010 (Charter 712, Statutes of 2010). Funding is provided to new charter schools that began operation in the 2008–09, 2009–10, or 2010–11 fiscal years, and may be used for any educational purpose.
The amount paid in this apportionment reflects 100 percent of the final New Charter School Supplemental Categorical Block Grant entitlement, less funds previously apportioned, for Charter Alternative Program Charter School and Madera County Independent Academy Charter School. Entitlements were calculated for each new charter school that began operation in the 2008–09, 2009–10, or 2010–11 fiscal year at a rate of $127 per unit of charter school average daily attendance (ADA) at the 2010–11 second principal (P-2) apportionment. An exception is that locally funded charter schools that converted from a preexisting school between the 2008–09 and 2010–11 fiscal years are not eligible for funding.
This apportionment includes funding for the two locally funded charter schools identified above in the district or county amount. The funding for these schools was adjusted to include the charter schools’ county revenue limit ADA at the 2010-11 P-2 apportionment that was not previously included. A detailed list providing each school level entitlement is also posted on the California Department of Education’s (CDE) Categorical Programs Web site.
A charter school that receives funding pursuant to this grant shall not receive additional funding for programs specified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of the Education Code Section 42605, with the exception of the program funded pursuant to Item 6110-211-0001 of Section 2.00 of the annual Budget Act (Charter School Categorical Block Grant).
The CDE notified the El Dorado and Madera County Superintendents of Schools of this apportionment by e-mail, addressed to the county’s CDEfisc e-mail address. The e-mail contains a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/, where under the program name New Charter School Supplemental Categorical Block Grant, the letter and schedule for this apportionment is posted. The CDE requests that the e-mail be forwarded to the affected districts in the county, to immediately inform them of this apportionment.
