Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools:

NOTICE OF SECOND APPORTIONMENT FOR
SPECIAL EDUCATION−MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
FISCAL YEAR 2011−12

This apportionment, in the amount of $62,446,500, is made from Section A of the State School Fund with funds provided in Provisions 18 and 26 of Item 6110-161-0001 of the 2011 Budget Act (Chapter 33, Statutes of 2011), as amended by Assembly Bill 108 (Chapter 135, Statutes of 2011), for the purpose of providing educationally related mental health services, including out-of-home residential services for emotionally disturbed pupils, required by an individualized education program pursuant to the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and as described in Section 56363 of the California Education Code (EC).

This second apportionment equals 25 percent of the total $249,786,000 budget appropriation, and is distributed to special education local plan areas (SELPAs) based on a rate per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) reported for the 2010–11 second principal apportionment. The rates per ADA for this apportionment are $0.0975269560 for the Los Angeles Court Schools SELPA and $10.4833692529 for all other SELPAs. Information pertaining to this apportionment, including a copy of this apportionment letter and the schedule of apportionment, is posted on the California Department of Education Special Education Programs Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/se/sep1appnform04.asp. Detail information of the first apportionment (50% of the appropriation) that was distributed in September 2011 can also be viewed on this site.

The remaining 25 percent will be paid in Summer 2012, and will be calculated so that the total distribution to each SELPA is based on the ADA reported for the 2011–12 second principal apportionment, pursuant to EC Section 56836.07.

Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately three weeks from the date of this letter. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 6512, Special Education, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.
