Dear County Office of Education Chief Business Officials:

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2017–18 third quarter lottery apportionment on June 28, 2018. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $379,888,762.03. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $181,900,690.81 or $29.32 ($29.322132904) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $197,988,071.22 or $31.92 ($31.915395620) for the Proposition 20 apportionment.

The California Department of Education requests that county superintendents of schools inform LEAs immediately of this apportionment.
