Dear County Superintendents of Schools:


This apportionment, in the amount of $802,000, is made to county offices of education (COEs) from funds provided in Section 39(a)(8) of Assembly Bill 1610 (Chapter 724, Statutes of 2010), School Safety Block Grant. Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice.

California Department of Education (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. The e-mail contained a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web page at where, under the program name, the letter and schedule for this apportionment are posted.

California Education Code 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 2014-15 for numerous budget items, including the funds formerly restricted to this program. COEs may now use the funds formerly restricted to this program for any educational purpose. Program and funding requirements as otherwise provided in statute, regulation, and budget act provisional language associated with the funding are not in effect. The funds are therefore unrestricted and should be accounted for as such. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 0000, Unrestricted, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.

The 2010-11 program entitlements for COEs were calculated based on the same relative proportion of funds that each COE received for the 2008-09 School Safety and Violence Prevention Program. This apportionment provides funding equal to 100 percent of each COE’s 2010-11 School Safety and Violence Prevention Program entitlement, and is being paid per statute from funds deferred from 2010-11 to 2011-12.

If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Christina Schlueter, Assistant Fiscal Consultant, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-324-9806 or by e-mail at [Note, the preceding contact information is no longer valid and has been replaced by Janet Finley, Fiscal Analyst, Categorical Allocations & Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-323-5091 or by e-mail at]
