Towards the end of February, county treasurers will receive a warrant that reflects state aid for elementary, high, and unified school districts; charter schools; and county offices of education for programs included in the 2016–17 First Principal Apportionment (P-1). The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-1 on February 17, 2017, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41332 in the amount of $35,241,448,095.
