Each participating LEA shall determine whether their classified school employees who submit the election form are eligible to participate in the CSESAP pursuant to California Education Code Section 45500.

Participating LEAs should provide specific filing instructions to their employees to ensure the election forms are filed by the statutory deadline of March 1 of each fiscal year in which funds are appropriated.
