This letter is to notify you that an apportionment has been made to your school district or charter school for the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program for the spring 2009 testing cycle. The STAR apportionment is made from the state General Fund for participation in the STAR Program in accordance with criteria specified in California Education Code Section 60640(h) to reimburse school districts and charter schools for costs associated with the annual STAR testing.
The State Controller will mail warrants to the appropriate county treasurers. STAR 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 school districts and charter schools.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact Mei Tan, Analyst, STAR Office, by phone at 916-319-0346 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
