Dear County Offices of Education Chief Business Officials:

2016–17 Fourth Quarter Lottery Apportionment

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2016–17 fourth quarter lottery apportionment on September 29, 2017. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $149,508,698.35 or $24.06 ($24.056049640) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $161,402,280.26 or $25.97 ($25.969734757) for the Proposition 20 apportionment.

To view a copy of the Master Register that lists the ADA, apportionment, and adjustments for 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.

Please note, the SCO issued a “2016­­–17 First Quarter Lottery Apportionment Payment Calculation Notification” for the December 2016 payment on SCO’s Apportionment Web page at https://www.sco.ca.gov/ard_payments_lottery_error1.html. The California Department of Education (CDE) posted additional information about the error in the FY 2016–17 second and third quarter lottery apportionment letters, which can be found at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/lo/.

The CDE requests that county chief business officials inform local educational agencies immediately of this apportionment.
