Dear County Office of Education Chief Business Officials:

2017–18 Second Quarter Lottery Apportionment

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2017–18 second quarter lottery apportionment on March 30, 2018. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $308,362,803.71. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $294,705,221 or $47.50 ($47.504185685) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $13,657,582.71 or $2.20 ($2.201497632) for the Proposition 20 apportionment.

A final lottery revenue adjustment is included in this second quarter apportionment. The adjustment reflects additional 2016–17 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 2016–17 totaled $34,677. Of this amount, $17,338.50 or $0.002150651 per ADA is unrestricted lottery funding and $17,338.50 or $0.002345371 is 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 superintendents of schools inform LEAs immediately of this apportionment. If you have any questions regarding the lottery apportionment, please contact Janet Finley, Fiscal Consultant, by phone at 916-323-5091 or by e-mail at jfinley@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

 

Caryn Moore, Director
School Fiscal Services Division
