Dear County Office of Education Chief Business Officials:

2022–23 Fourth Quarter Lottery Apportionment

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2022–23 fourth quarter Lottery apportionment on September 29, 2023. The total apportioned to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools is $422,501,476.11. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive $ 203,692,411.42 or $36.50 ($36.504855767) per unit of average daily attendance (ADA) for the unrestricted lottery apportionment and $218,809,064.69 or $39.21 ($39.213995649) per unit of ADA for the Proposition 20 lottery apportionment this quarter.

A final lottery revenue adjustment is included in this fourth quarter apportionment. The adjustment reflects additional 2021–22 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 2021–22 totaled $27,448,056.00. Of this amount, $1.85 ($1.853620468) per ADA is unrestricted lottery funding and $2.04 ($2.043238434) per ADA 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 page at

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 the Categorical Allocations and Audit Resolutions office by email at
