Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

2018−19 First Principal Apportionment

Towards the end of February, 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 2018–19 First Principal Apportionment (P-1). The California Department of Education (CDE) certified P-1 on February 20, 2019, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41332 in the amount of $38,791,704,492. County superintendents of schools should advise school districts and charter schools immediately of this apportionment.

This apportionment includes funding for 2018−19 as well as updated funding for the 2017−18 Annual Apportionment, the 2016−17 Second Annual Recertification, and adjustments to other prior year apportionments, as necessary.

A summary of the calculations that the CDE used in the P-1 Apportionment is available as an attachment to this letter. Funding exhibits and apportionment Excel files that provide detailed funding amounts related to the P-1 Apportionment are available on the CDE 2018−19 Principal Apportionment web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/pa1819.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.

 

If you need assistance or have any further questions, Principal Apportionment staff may be reached by phone at 916-324-4541 or by email at PASE@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,
