The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $265,966,356.87. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $127,651,594.38 or $20.89 ($20.888438094) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $138,314,762.49 or $22.63 ($22.633319627) per unit of ADA for the Proposition 20 lottery apportionment.
