Adult Education Report
The Adult Education reports for districts and counties have been modified to reflect pertinent provisions of Assembly Bill 23 relative to the adjustment for authorized units of adult education Average Daily Attendance (ADA). After the 2.5 percent growth calculation is computed, the California Department of Education will make adjustments to the local educational agency’s (LEA) authorized adult education Cap ADA (Line C-18) as follows:
- LEAs that earn less than their adult education Cap ADA in the prior two years will have their Cap ADA reduced by one-half of the lowest level of unearned authorized adult education Cap ADA for those two years (Line C-11).
- The authorized adult education Cap ADA available from the adjustments made to those LEAs that did not reach their Cap ADA in the prior two years will be redistributed as follows:
- Any LEA with fewer than 100.00 Cap ADA that has met or exceeded its Cap ADA in the prior two years would receive, upon request, up to additional 30 authorized adult education ADA, until a Cap of 100.00 is reached (Line C-14);
- Any LEA with 100.00 or more Cap ADA that has met or exceeded its Cap ADA in the prior two years would receive a prorated amount of the authorized adult education ADA available (Line C-17).
In addition to the modification on the report, additional lines (C-5 thru C-8, C 12, C-13, C-15, and C-16) have been added to the Preload screen in Forecasting Mode for your use to estimate the 2006-07 Cap ADA on Line C-18.
Assembly Bill (AB) 602 Report
The two statewide target rates (STR) in the ADA and Rates section of the AB 602 report have been clarified. Specifically, Line A-14 shows the STR used for purposes of the special disabilities adjustment. This rate is the original STR prior to bifurcation, increased by the prior year supplement to base rate and the yearly cost of living adjustment (COLA). The prior year's STR used in the growth calculation (Line A-10) has been increased by the prior year's supplement to the base rate of $9.67. This rate is in turn increased by the 06-07 COLA to provide the 2006-07 STR at Line A-13. Further, $50.6 million has been appropriated for a supplement to base in 2006-07. The estimated rate is $8.37 per ADA and is reflected in Line B-7.
Out-of-Home Care (OHC) Report
Fiscal year 2006-07 is the first year of the hold harmless phase-out. Specifically, if a Special Education Local Plan Area’s (SELPA) 2006-07 OHC funding entitlement is less than the amount it received for the 2005-06 fiscal year, the SELPA shall receive the same amount it received for the 2005-06 fiscal year less 20 percent of the difference between the two amounts (Education Code Section 56836.173(c)). Similar to prior years, any SELPA with a 2006-07 OHC funding entitlement greater than the amount received for the prior year shall receive the same amount it received for the prior year plus a portion of the difference between the two amounts, based on a proration factor.

The 2006-07 State Budget eliminated the deficit factors for School District and County Revenue Limits.
In 2006-07, all continuing block-grant funded charter schools will receive Economic Impact Aid (EIA) funding based on: their prior year enrollment counts as reported in the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS); prior year English learners (El) count as reported in the R30-LC Language Census; and current year Economically Disadvantaged (ED) pupil counts, which is a count of pupils ages five through seventeen, as of October 2006, whose annual family income is at or below the federal poverty level. New charter schools in their first year of operation will receive EIA funds based on current year CBEDs, R30-LC, and ED counts.
