Dear Select County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:
This apportionment, in the amount of $77,842, is made from funds provided in Item 6110-198-0001 of the Budget Act of 2007 (Chapter 171, Statutes of 2007) in support of the California School Age Families Education (Cal-SAFE) Program as established in the California Education Code (EC), commencing with Section 54740. Cal-SAFE funding provides support to pregnant and parenting teens and their children.
Local educational agencies (LEAs) that start new Cal-SAFE child care programs or expand the capacity of existing child care programs are eligible to receive one-time start-up funding pursuant to EC Section 54749(j). Cal-SAFE funding is limited to 15 percent of the funding generated by the projected enrollment of a new site (service level) or the incremental increase related to the expansion of an existing facility. Funding must be used for the approved start-up costs enumerated in EC Section 8275(a).
This apportionment is calculated based upon data received on the Cal-SAFE Program Application for Reimbursement of Start-Up Costs and constitutes 100 percent of the total start-up entitlement for each participating LEA. To view the schedule of apportionment, please visit the California Department of Education Categorical Programs Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/.
Warrants will be mailed to county treasurers approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure coding, please use Resource Code 6092, Cal-SAFE Child Care and Development Services, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.
