Dear Select County and District Superintendents, County Treasurers, and District California High School Exit Examination 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 2012–13 state General Fund may be used to pay approved apportionment costs from the 2011–12 and prior fiscal years for the Standardized Testing and Reporting Program, the California English Language Development Test, and the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE).
This assessment apportionment payment is made for the 2008–09 CAHSEE Program testing in accordance with criteria specified in California Education Code Section 60851(a) to reimburse LEAs for costs associated with the annual CAHSEE testing.
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 Gayle Jamerson, Analyst, High School and Physical Fitness Assessment Office, by phone at 916-319-0340 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Deborah V.H. Sigman, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction
