Dear County Superintendents of Schools:
This apportionment, in the amount of 100,118,000, is made from funds provided in Section 92(a)(9) of Senate Bill (SB) 1016 (Chapter 38, Statutes of 2012), Targeted Instructional Improvement Block Grant (TIIBG). Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice.
The county superintendents of schools were notified of this apportionment by e-mail which was sent to their CDEfisc e-mail addresses. The California Department of Education (CDE) requested that the e-mail be forwarded to all school districts in the county, and included the links to this letter and the apportionment schedule which is posted on the CDE Web page at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/tiibg.asp.
California Education Code Section 42605, as that section read on January 1, 2013, 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 formerly restricted to the TIIBG program. School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools 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.
Each school district’s 2012–13 TIIBG entitlement was calculated based on the same relative proportion of funds that each school district received for the 2008–09 TIIBG program. Funding for the 2012–13 program entitlements comes from two sources, as follows: (1) $755,013,000 from Item 6110-246-0001, as reduced by Control Section 12.42, of the Budget Act of 2012, and (2) $100,118,000 in funds deferred from 2012–13 to 2013–14 and appropriated in Section 92(a)(9) of SB 1016. This apportionment provides to each school district the portion of the TIIBG funding that was deferred from fiscal year 2012–13 to 2013–14.
