Ltr2-15: Second Quarter Lottery
Dear County Offices of Education Chief Business Officials:
2015–16 Second Quarter Lottery Apportionment
The State Controller’s Office (SCO) will distribute the 2015–16 second quarter lottery apportionment on March 30, 2016. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $258,510,261.97 or $41.53 ($41.534186641) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment.
As noted in our first quarter apportionment letter dated January 8, 2016, the final lottery revenue adjustment would be included in the second quarter apportionment. The adjustment reflects additional 2014–15 lottery revenue that is available for distribution. Each year, the California State Lottery withholds a portion of its revenues until after the audit of its year-end financial statements. The additional revenue released for 2014–15 totaled $7,236,984.22. Of this amount, $0.43 per ADA ($0.425606092) is unrestricted lottery funding and $0.46 per ADA ($0.460035081) is restricted Proposition 20 lottery funding.
To view a copy of the Master Register that lists the ADA, apportionment, adjustments, and net amount actually paid (Remittance Advice) to each county office, school district, charter school, and community college district on a quarterly and year-to-date basis, visit the SCO’s Web site at https://www.sco.ca.gov/ard_payments_lottery.html.
The California Department of Education requests that county chief business officials inform local educational agencies immediately of this apportionment. If you have any questions regarding the lottery apportionment, please contact
