Dear Select County and District Superintendents, Charter School Administrators, County Treasurers, and District Coordinators:
The purpose of this letter is to notify you that an assessment apportionment payment has been made to your local educational agency (LEA). The assessment apportionment funds from the 2010–11 state General Fund may be used to pay approved apportionment costs from the 2009–10 and the 2010–11 fiscal years for the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program, the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), and the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE).
This assessment apportionment payment is made for participation in the 2009–10 CELDT Program test administration in accordance with criteria specified in California Education Code Section 60810 to reimburse LEAs for costs associated with the annual CELDT administration.
The State Controller will mail warrants to the appropriate county treasurers. Assessment apportionment funds are considered unrestricted and should be accounted for as Income Account or Revenue Object Code 8590 (Resource Code 0000) of the General Fund. The enclosed county listing provides the apportionment amount for LEAs.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Kerri Wong, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, English Language Proficiency Assessments Office, by phone at 916-319-0333 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deborah V.H. Sigman, Deputy Superintendent
