The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2020–21 fourth quarter lottery apportionment on September 30, 2021. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $371,289,826.54. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $177,473,056.25 or $28.86 ($28.856461538) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the Non-Proposition 20 unrestricted lottery apportionment and $193,816,770.29 or $31.51 ($31.513888853) per unit of ADA for the Proposition 20 lottery apportionment.
