Program description

Apportionments were made from the state’s Federal Trust Fund, as transferred to the California Department of Education via an Interagency Agreement with the California Office of Planning and Research, over two state fiscal year budget authorities; $1,199,906,585 available in 2010-11 and $17,747,529 available in 2011-12.
The Education Jobs (Ed Jobs) program, a component of the Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act of 2010 (PL 111-226), provided federal funding to California with an intended use to save or create an estimated 16,500 kindergarten through grade twelve (K–12) jobs for the 2010–11 school year. Jobs funded under this program include those that provide educational and related services for early childhood, elementary and secondary education. Local educational agency (LEA) entitlements were based on each LEA’s proportionate share of revenue limit and charter school general purpose funding in 2010-11 as determined at the Second Principal Apportionment (P-2).

LEAs that submitted an application for the State Fiscal Stabilization Funds grant were eligible to receive an Ed Jobs grant. LEAs were also required to complete the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Section 1512 quarterly reports and met cash management requirements under federal statute and regulations. Ed Jobs Funds were to be used only for school level compensation and benefits and other expenses, such as support services, necessary to retain existing employees, to recall or rehire former employees, and to hire new employees, in order to provide early childhood, elementary, or secondary educational and related services. Ed Jobs Funds were available for obligation through September 30, 2012. LEAs could not use Ed Jobs Funds prior to August 10, 2010, the date of enactment of the Act.
