Dear County Offices of Education Chief Business Officials:
2016–17 Third Quarter Lottery Apportionment
The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2016–17 third quarter lottery apportionment on June 28, 2017. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $312,073,762.95. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $165,363,563.37 or $26.61 ($26.607107810) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $146,710,199.58 or $23.61 ($23.605769266) for the Proposition 20 apportionment.
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 http://www.sco.ca.gov/ard_payments_lottery.html.
LEAs are advised that due to technical issues experienced this year in the first quarter payment, the year to date paid amounts on the June 2017 Master Register may not reflect the actual amounts received by an LEA. To compute an LEA’s year to date payment amount, sum the following:
- The LEA’s first quarter Total Paid Amount from December 2016 Master Register.
- The LEA’s second and third quarter Total Paid Amount 2017 Master Register.
