Dear San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools:

NOTICE OF THE SIXTH APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICT AND COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION
BUS REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
FISCAL YEAR 2011–12

This apportionment, in the amount of $116,250, is made from funds provided by Schedule (2) of Item 6110-111-0001, Small School District and County Office of Education Bus Replacement Program, of the Budget Act of 2011 (Chapter 33, Statutes of 2011). Funds are used for the purchase of replacement buses for small school districts and county office of education as provided by California Education Code sections 42290–42293, 42301.1, and 42303. This apportionment represents the final
75 percent payment for Baker Valley Unified.

A warrant will be mailed to the San Bernardino County Treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 7235, Transportation: School Bus Replacement, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.

The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools was notified of this apportionment by e-mail which was sent to the CDEfisc e-mail address. The California Department of Education (CDE) requested that the e-mail be forwarded to Baker Valley Unified, and included a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/ where, under the program name, the letter and schedule for this apportionment are posted.

Eligibility for bus replacement funds is limited to buses manufactured prior to 1992. Eligible bus replacement applications are ranked based on “excess age” and mileage, and condition of the bus as specified in the program information manual dated June 2011. The program information manual also states that the total funding an agency will receive is limited to the net local cost of purchasing a new bus. If the net local cost is less than the award amount, the agency award will be reduced to the net local cost. Revised entitlements on this apportionment reflect reductions to the initial award amount due to the actual purchase price.

If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Tonya Holmes, Fiscal Analyst, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-323-6028 or by e-mail at tholmes@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

 

Jeannie Oropeza, Deputy Superintendent
Services for Administration, Finance, Technology, and Infrastructure Branch
