Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

2017–18 SECOND PRINCIPAL APPORTIONMENT

Towards the end of June, county treasurers will receive a warrant that reflects state aid for school districts; charter schools; and county offices of education for programs included in the 2017–18 Second Principal Apportionment (P-2). The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-2 on June 19, 2018, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41335 in the amount of $34,987,702,505. County superintendents of schools should advise school districts and charter schools immediately of this apportionment.

This apportionment includes funding for 2017−18 as well as updated funding for the 2016−17 First Annual Recertification, the 2015−16 Third Annual Recertification, and adjustments to other prior year apportionments, as necessary.

A summary of the calculations that the CDE used in the P-2 Apportionment is available as an attachment to this letter. Funding exhibits and apportionment Excel files that provide detailed funding amounts related to the P-2 Apportionment are available on the CDE 2017−18 Principal Apportionment web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/pa1718.asp. Additional Excel files for Special Education are available on the Special Education web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/se/

The CDE provides funding information electronically via the CDE’s PASE listserv. The listserv provides important information to local educational agencies and other interested parties, such as notifications regarding Local Control Funding Formula updates, software releases, key deadlines, reminders of due dates for submission of data, and any other pertinent topics related to the Principal Apportionment. If you do not already belong to the PASE listserv and would like to subscribe, send a “blank” message to: join-pase-contacts@mlist.cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,
