Dear County Superintendents of Schools and Treasurers:

NOTICE OF THE FIRST APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
READER SERVICES FOR LEGALLY BLIND TEACHERS PROGRAM
FISCAL YEAR 2009-10

This apportionment, in the amount of $321,000, is made from funds provided in Schedule (3) of Item 6110-193-0001, Reader Services for Legally Blind Teachers, of the Budget Act of 2009 (Chapter 1, Statutes of 2009, Third Extraordinary Session as amended by Chapter 1 of the Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009).

County superintendents of schools are requested to immediately inform recipients of this apportionment. Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer and to the California School for the Blind (Fremont) approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. To view the schedule of apportionment, please visit the California Department of Education (CDE) Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.

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 for the Reader Services for Legally Blind Teachers Program which were previously allocated as unrestricted. EC Section 42605 also provided that funds for the programs made flexible be allocated in 2009-10 through 2012-13 based on the relative share that each local educational agency (LEA) received of funds allocated for the 2008-09 fiscal year. In July 2009, EC Section 42605 was amended to change the base year for the Reader Services for Legally Blind Teachers Program and seven other programs from 2008-09 to 2007-08.

This apportionment provides 100 percent of each LEA’s 2009-10 Reader Services for Legally Blind Teachers Program entitlement. These entitlements were calculated based on the relative share that each LEA received of 2007-08 program funds, then reduced to reflect reduction in funding that was enacted in Control Section 12.42 of the Budget Act of 2009.

If you have 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Office, by phone at 916-322-9128 or by e-mail at jhuarte@cde.ca.gov [Note, the preceding contact information is no longer valid.]

Sincerely,

Susan Lange, Deputy Superintendent
Finance, Technology, and Administration Branch
