The California Department of Education (CDE) certified the First Principal Apportionment (P-1) for fiscal year 2020–21 on February 19, 2021, pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 41332. The following provides specific details regarding the calculation of funding for each Principal Apportionment program, including the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).

Local educational agency (LEA) funding calculations are available through the Principal Apportionment Funding Exhibits. In addition to certifying the 2020–21 P-1 funding calculations, fiscal years 2019–20 (Annual) and 2018–19 (Annual R-2) have been recalculated, as well as other prior years, as necessary. The cumulative amount of prior year adjustments are reflected on Line A-17 of the 2020–21 P-1 Principal Apportionment Summary (XLSX), and further detailed on the Adjustments and Prior Year Recomputations (XLSX) Excel file. For more information about these adjustments and other resources, please see the Resources for Understanding Principal Apportionment Entitlements and Payments section below.

2020–21 Principal Apportionment Highlights

Each year, there may be statutory or administrative changes to Principal Apportionment calculations and this year many of those were in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Highlights of these changes are as follows:

  • Attendance for apportionment is not being collected for the current year (FY 2020–21) due to Senate Bill (SB) 98 (Chapter 24, Statutes of 2020) and SB 820 (Chapter 110, Statutes of 2020). Instead, LEAs are funded on either 2019–20 average daily attendance (ADA), adjusted according to provisions specified in EC Section 43502, or a current year ADA proxy calculated pursuant to EC Section 43505. The SB 820 ADA Determination Calculation for Growth LEAs and Newly Operational Charter Schools (XLSX) has been posted on the CDE website.
    • A new field has been added to the informational section of the County LCFF Calculation, Charter School LCFF Calculation, and School District LCFF Calculation exhibits to indicate the source of ADA used in each LEA’s 2020–21 apportionment calculations. The field indicates "TRUE" for newly operational charter schools and SB 820 growth LEAs funded pursuant to EC Section 43505 and "FALSE" for LEAs funded on 2019–20 ADA pursuant to EC Section 43502.
  • SB 98 implemented several Principal Apportionment deferrals for 2020–21, which means a portion of current year state aid payments are deferred to the subsequent fiscal year. For more information, see the Payment Schedule and Deferrals section below.
  • Due to COVID-19, 2020–21 California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) extended the deadlines for LEAs to identify students enrolled on Census Day (October 7, 2020), as outlined in the CDE's November 17, 2020 guidance letter:
    • English Learners by December 31, 2020.
    • Eligible for free or reduced-price meals (FRPM) because they submitted an FRPM application or Alternative Household Income form by December 31, 2020.
    • CALPADS direct certification match through January 2021, or local direct certification match through December 31, 2020.
  • SB 98 and SB 820 modified the funding formula for special education programs. A summary of changes is outlined in the Special Education Funding AB 602 section below.

Determination of 2020–21 ADA

In accordance with SB 98 and 820, the table below outlines how the ADA used for an LEA’s 2020–21 apportionment calculations is determined. The CDE has published a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the SB 820 growth application and provides more detail regarding this determination.

Continuing LEAs Not Eligible for SB 820 Growth LEAs Eligible for SB 820 Growth* Newly Operational Charter Schools
2019–20 P-2/Annual ADA (based on the most recent certification) Lesser of:
2020–21 CALPADS ADA Proxy (Fall 1 Enrollment reduced by the statewide average rate of absence for 2019–20)

2020–21 Projected ADA Proxy (LEA’s projected ADA based on budget documentation, or enrollment reduced by the statewide average rate of absence for 2019–20 based on budget documentation)
2020–21 CALPADS ADA Proxy (Fall 1 Enrollment reduced by the statewide average rate of absence for 2019–20)

*An LEA’s LCFF Entitlement using SB 820 growth ADA may not be less than an LEA’s LCFF Entitlement calculated using 2019–20 ADA.

LCFF Entitlement and State Aid – All Local Educational Agencies

The calculation of LCFF state aid shown on lines A-1, A-2, and A-3 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the County LCFF Calculation, School District LCFF Calculation, and Charter School LCFF Calculation exhibits, respectively.

For all LEAs, LCFF state aid is determined by subtracting local property taxes (or in-lieu of taxes for charter schools) and the 2020–21 Education Protection Account (EPA) Entitlement from the LCFF Entitlement. If applicable, the LCFF state aid is increased to reach the LCFF minimum level of state aid required by law, and includes additional LCFF state aid for county offices of education (COE) as specified below.

LCFF Entitlement

For school districts and charter schools, the LCFF Entitlement is primarily comprised of grade span specific per-ADA base grants, plus supplemental and concentration grant funding based on the Unduplicated Pupil Percentage (UPP) of targeted disadvantaged students.

The LCFF Entitlement for COEs funded at the LCFF Target is comprised of an Operations Grant based on the size of the county, and an Alternative Education Grant based on a specific student population served by the COE. COEs that received revenue limit and categorical program funding at a higher level than their LCFF Target entitlement are subject to the hold harmless provisions that hold their funding at the 2012–13 levels, adjusted by current year Alternative Education Grant ADA, until their LCFF Entitlement grows and surpasses the 2012–13 funding levels. These calculations comprise the LCFF Floor which is used in lieu of the LCFF Target for determination of the LCFF Entitlement for COEs funded on the “hold harmless” provisions of EC Section 2575(g)(2).

Descriptions of the LCFF components are available on the LCFF Overview web page. The details of each LEA’s LCFF Entitlement are displayed on the School District LCFF Calculation, Charter School LCFF Calculation, and County LCFF Calculation exhibits. All applicable current year funding rates used in the calculations are available on the Funding Rates and Information web page.

Unduplicated Pupil Percentage

The UPP is a percentage based on three years of data (current, prior, and second prior year). The UPP is not an average of each year’s percentage; rather, the sum of the unduplicated pupil count (UPC) for the three years is divided by the sum of enrollment for the three years to produce the current year’s UPP. In the subsequent years, the newest year will be added and the oldest will be dropped off.

The enrollment and UPC, which form the basis of the UPP, were collected by the CDE in the CALPADS Fall 1 2020 data collection. CALPADS Fall 1 data approved by the LEA by the certification deadline (December 18, 2020), was used for the 2020–21 P-1 UPP calculations. However, discrepancies were found in the CALPADS data extract used for the P-1 calculation that resulted in free or reduced-price meal (FRPM) records being understated and incorrect counts for direct certification, foster youth, and English learner (EL). Data certified in CALPADS Fall 1 as of the close of the final amendment window (February 4, 2021) will be used beginning with the 2020–21 P-2 UPP calculations, and will correct the errors found in the data used for P-1. Subsequent changes to CALPADS counts for LCFF can only be submitted through the audit process. Additional information on Audit Adjustments to CALPADS Data is available in the Data Reporting Instruction Manual (DOCX).

The CALPADS data used to determine each LEA’s UPP also reflects transfers reported in CALPADS for students that are served by the COE but funded for LCFF at the district of residence, as well as transfers for charter school students who are funded through the LCFF COE formula. The Report of Attendance and CALPADS Enrollment/Unduplicated Pupil Count Transfers for District Funded County Program Students (XLSX) Excel file shows the District Funded County Program ADA reported by COEs by district of residence and CALPADS enrollment and unduplicated pupil count transfers as of the CALPADS Fall 1 report. Similarly, the Report of Attendance and CALPADS Enrollment/Unduplicated Pupil Count Transfers for County Program Charter School Students (XLSX) Excel file shows the Charter Served, County Funded ADA reported by the charter schools and CALPADS enrollment and UPC transfers. The CDE published a series of Frequently Asked Questions on the transfer of enrollment and unduplicated pupils, as well as the flow of funds under LCFF for these students.

Details of the UPP calculations are displayed on the County Unduplicated Pupil Percentage, School District Unduplicated Pupil Percentage, and Charter School Unduplicated Pupil Percentage exhibits.

NSS Allowance and Add-on Amounts

If applicable, the Necessary Small School (NSS) Allowance and NSS ADA are taken into account for the School District LCFF Entitlement. ADA funded through the NSS formula is excluded from the Base Grant Funding but is included for purposes of Supplemental and Concentration Grant calculations. The CDE calculated the NSS Allowance for the LCFF Entitlement based on the NSS Funding Band amounts for the applicable fiscal year. The CDE also calculated the NSS Allowance for the EPA Proportionate Share calculation based on the 2012–13 Deficited NSS Funding Band amounts. For both calculations, the allowance is based on the combination of ADA and the number of full-time teachers (FTT) for elementary schools, or the number of full-time equivalent certificated employees (FTE) for high schools, whichever provides the lesser allowance. Additional details can be found on the School District Necessary Small Schools Allowance funding exhibit.

The 2020–21 NSS Allowance will be calculated using the number of FTT or FTEs from the 2019–20 and 2020–21 fiscal years, and either 2019–20 ADA or SB 820 growth ADA, as applicable.

School district and COE LCFF Entitlements include, if applicable, add-on funding based on three 2012–13 programs: Targeted Instructional Improvement Block Grant, Home-to-School Transportation, and Small School District Bus Replacement Program. School district and charter school LCFF Entitlements include, if applicable, Economic Recovery Target (ERT) Add-on funding. ERT is based upon a calculation done in 2013–14 that determined if the LEA would have generated a higher entitlement under the revenue limit/categorical funding model rather than the LCFF model. With full implementation of the LCFF in 2019–20, the total ERT Entitlement has become a permanent add-on to an eligible LEA’s LCFF Entitlement.

Minimum State Aid Guarantee

Some LEAs receive additional state aid above the LCFF Entitlement to meet the level of the statutory minimum guarantee based on 2012–13 funding, known as Minimum State Aid Guarantee. The additional state aid to meet the Minimum State Aid Guarantee is added to the school district, charter school or COE LCFF State Aid, as applicable.

Additional COE LCFF State Aid

EC Section 2575.1, effective as of the 2017–18 fiscal year, provides each COE funded at the LCFF Target as of the 2016–17 Second Principal Apportionment additional LCFF state aid based on the number of school districts under its jurisdiction, or a statutory minimum. Details of the funding calculation can be found in the County LCFF Calculation funding exhibit.

EC Section 2575.2, effective as of the 2018–19 fiscal year, provides all COEs with more than one school district under its jurisdiction $200,000 in additional LCFF state aid plus an allowance based on school districts identified for differentiated assistance pursuant to EC Section 52071. Details of the funding calculation can be found in the County Funding Based on Districts Identified for Differentiated Assistance funding exhibit. Note that there was no identification of school districts for differentiated assistance in 2020; the exhibit uses the 2019 district identification in lieu of 2020 identification pursuant to SB 98 (Section 104 of Chapter 24, Statutes of 2020).

LCFF State Aid pursuant to EC Section 2575.1 and EC Section 2575.2 represents a portion of a COE’s overall LCFF State Aid and is included in standardized account code structure (SACS) Object Code 8011.

In-lieu of Property Taxes

In-lieu of property taxes have been recalculated for fiscal year 2020–21 as well as for fiscal years 2018–19 and 2019–20 to reflect revised ADA and sponsoring school district tax per ADA rates. Total in-lieu of property taxes for each charter school are shown on Line I-4 of the Charter School LCFF Calculation exhibit. Countywide charter schools, county program charter schools and charter schools authorized by the State Board of Education may have multiple sponsoring school districts, as defined in EC Section 47632(i). A summary of the in-lieu of property taxes for these charter schools is shown on the ADA and In-lieu of Property Taxes by District of Residence (XLSX) Excel file. Details of the calculation are provided in the Local Revenue Detail by District of Residence exhibit. In-lieu of property taxes are final as of the third annual recertification.

Since the sponsoring school district is not always the same as the authorizing entity, a complete list of charter schools included in the Principal Apportionment will be published with each certification beginning with 2019–20 P-1 to identify the authorizer, sponsoring school district(s), petition type, and petition expiration date for each charter school included in the Principal Apportionment. The Excel file, titled Charter Schools in the 2020–21 First Principal Apportionment (XLSX) is available on the 2020–21 Funding Excel Files web page.

Education Protection Account Entitlement

EPA revenues, as authorized by Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution, are generated by increases in personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers. LEAs will receive quarterly EPA payments through the 2030–31 fiscal year, paid outside of the Principal Apportionment. For information on the 2020–21 P-1 EPA calculations, refer to the Third Quarter EPA apportionment letter.

Details of the EPA calculations are displayed on the Education Protection Account Calculation exhibit. EPA entitlements are also displayed on the County LCFF Calculation, School District LCFF Calculation, and Charter School LCFF Calculation exhibits, and are shown for informational purposes on the Principal Apportionment Summary.

For additional information on EPA and quarterly payments to LEAs, visit the CDE’s EPA web page.

Basic Aid Choice, Basic Aid Court-Ordered Voluntary Pupil Transfer, and Basic Aid Open Enrollment

The Basic Aid Choice, Basic Aid Court-Ordered Voluntary Pupil Transfer, and Basic Aid Open Enrollment programs are inter-district attendance programs that provide state aid to basic aid (excess tax) school districts that are serving students from non-basic aid districts. The calculation of state aid shown on lines A-4, A-5, and A-6 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the School District Basic Aid Choice Calculation, School District Basic Aid Court-Ordered Voluntary Pupil Transfer Calculation, and School District Basic Aid Open Enrollment Calculation exhibits, respectively.

The 2020–21 P-1 statewide totals are as follows:

Program 2020−21 P-1 Statewide Total Amount

Basic Aid Choice

$1,265,165

Basic Aid Court-Ordered Voluntary Pupil Transfer

$5,393,440

Basic Aid Open Enrollment

$0
(no participants)

Basic Aid Supplement Funding (Charter School Adjustment)

The School District Basic Aid Supplement program provides to basic aid (excess tax) school districts supplemental funding for the loss of local property taxes due to charter schools that provide instruction to nonresident (out-of-district) students. The calculation of state aid shown on Line A-7 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the School District Basic Aid Supplement Calculation and School District Basic Aid Supplement Funding exhibits. The statewide total amount for this program at P-1 is $37,068,237.

Adults in Correctional Facilities

The Adults in Correctional Facilities (AICF) program provides funding on a reimbursement basis to eligible LEAs that offer schools and classes for adults in correctional facilities. The calculation of state aid shown on Line A-8 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the Adults in Correctional Facilities Funding exhibit.

Funding for the 2020–21 AICF program is based on the LEA’s prior year AICF entitlement, plus an increase or decrease in funding based on the ADA funded in the prior year compared to the ADA funded in the second prior year. Decreases in ADA are multiplied by the LEA-specific prior year funded rate per ADA, while increases in ADA and Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) are funded at a statewide average rate for the program. For most LEAs, ADA growth is capped at 2.5 percent. Growth and COLA funding may be prorated if there are insufficient funds.

The 2020–21 Budget Act appropriates $15,746,000 for the AICF program, which was sufficient to fully fund the program at P-1.

Special Education Funding Assembly Bill (AB) 602

The Special Education Program, also known as AB 602, provides funding to Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPA) based on the SELPA’s ADA and other data elements. Note: funding for the Extraordinary Cost Pool Claims Process (ECP) and the Necessary Small SELPAs’ Extraordinary Cost Pool for Mental Health Services Process (NSS ECPMH) is not calculated until the Annual Apportionment and funding for mental health services is apportioned outside of the Principal Apportionment.

The calculation of state aid shown on Line A-9 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the SELPA Special Education Funding Exhibit, SELPA Special Education Funding Exhibit – LA Court, and SELPA Special Education Funding Exhibit – Charter SELPA exhibits. The Special Education AB 602 ADA and Statewide Rates and Factors information can be viewed on the Special Education web page.

Pursuant to EC Section 56836.148, current year entitlement for each SELPA is the greater of $625.00 per ADA or the SELPA funding rate for the 2019–20 fiscal year multiplied by the funded ADA (greater of the current year, prior year, or second prior year ADA). Entitlements for all-charter SELPAs and Los Angeles Court School are also calculated under the new formula. As a result of the changes, the SELPA Special Education funding exhibits were amended to align with the changes to the funding formula.

The following is a summary of the changes reflected in the P-1 Apportionment:

  • ADA and COLA section (Lines A-1 through A-6) determines each SELPA current year funded ADA, 2019–20 funded ADA, and COLA.
  • Base Rate and Base Grant Funding section (Lines B-1 through B-6) determines the SELPA’s current year funding rate and calculates the base grant entitlement. Detailed calculations for each SELPA’s Prior Year SELPA Base Rate, Line B-1 is displayed on the Special Education AB 602 SELPA’s Prior Year Base Rate, Line B-1 (XLSX) Excel file.
  • General Funding section (Lines C-1 through C-4) calculates the funding entitlement after the special education local revenue offset for each SELPA.

In addition to the above changes, the SELPA Special Education Funding exhibits also incorporate the recent changes to the following programs as a result of the amendments enacted by SB 98:

  • Funding for necessary small SELPAs with declining enrollment is the declining enrollment adjustment the SELPA received for the 2019–20 fiscal year plus a proportional share of the appropriation provided in the 2020–21 Budget Act.
  • Funding for low incidence is based on pupil counts reported in the CALPADS Fall 1 Submission of the prior year.
  • Funding for Program Specialists & Regionalized Services is based on the SELPA funded ADA for the 2019–20 fiscal year.

The current year appropriation of $3,428,323,000 provided for the program was sufficient to fully fund the program at P-1. There was no COLA provided for the program for the 2020–21 fiscal year.

Special Education Out-of-Home Care

The Out-of-Home Care (OHC) Program provides funding to SELPAs for pupils residing in facilities located within each SELPA’s geographic boundaries. The calculation details for OHC funding, which is a component of the AB 602 entitlement, are displayed on the Out-of-Home Care Funding exhibit.

At P-1, prior year pupil counts for Community Care, Intermediate Care, and Skilled Nursing facilities were used to determine funding. At the 2020–21 P-2 Apportionment, funding for these facilities will be updated to reflect the pupil count data as of April 1, 2021. Pursuant to SB 98 (Chapter 24, Statutes of 2020), group home and foster home data from the 2016–17 fiscal year will continue to be used to calculate funding for the 2020–21 fiscal year.

The 2020–21 Budget Act appropriates $141,758,000 for the OHC Program, which is insufficient to fully fund the program at P-1. As a result, a proration factor of 0.9927807178 was applied to the program. Since there was no COLA provided for the 2020–21 fiscal year, the funding rates remain the same as 2019–20 which can be viewed on the Funding Rates and Information web page.

AB 602 State Aid Adjustments and Prior Year Recomputations
2019–20 Annual

The AB 602 appropriation of $2,980,375,000 continues to be insufficient to fully fund AB 602 entitlements at Annual. As a result, a proration factor continues to be applied to the Base Entitlement. The proration factor was 0.9981351366 at 2019–20 P-2, and is 0.9976632301 at 2019–20 Annual. There is no change to the 2019–20 OHC entitlement from P-2 to Annual. Funding for the ECP Program was insufficient and a proration factor of 0.2153948119 was applied to the calculation. Funding for the NSS ECPMH Program was fully funded at Annual.

2018–19 Annual R-2

The 2018–19 AB 602 entitlements continue to have a proration factor applied to the Base Entitlement. The proration factor was 0.9820481120 at 2018–19 Annual R-1, and is 0.9821148394 at 2018–19 Annual R-2. There are no changes for the OHC, ECP, and NSS ECPMH programs from Annual R-1 to Annual R-2.

Special Education Infant (Ages Two and Younger) Program

The Infant Program provides funding for SELPAs that operate early education programs for individuals with exceptional needs who are younger than three years of age. The calculation of state aid shown on Line A-10 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the Infant Entitlement exhibit.

The 2020–21 Budget Act appropriates $79,477,000 for the Infant Program, which is sufficient to fully fund the program at P-1. The statewide average unit rates information can be viewed on the Funding Rates and Information web page.

Prior year adjustments are included on Line A-17 of the Principal Apportionment Summary and details are displayed on the Adjustments and Prior Year Recomputations (XLSX) Excel file.

County Funding Transfer Process

The calculations for the transfer of funds shown on Line A-11 of the Principal Apportionment Summary can be found on the County Transfer of Funds for County Served District Funded ADA exhibit for COEs and School District Transfer of Funds for County Served District Funded ADA exhibit for school districts.

Beginning with 2019–20 P-1, the CDE calculates the transfer of funds in accordance with EC Section 2576 which requires the CDE to transfer funds from a school district of residence to a COE for all ADA served by the COE and not eligible for funding under the COE Alternative Education Grant. LCFF funding for this ADA is credited to the district of residence as part of its LCFF Entitlement, and is used to determine the school district’s LCFF State Aid. The amount transferred to the COE is equal to the ADA attributed to the district of residence multiplied by the district’s LCFF rate, comprised of the LCFF base, supplemental and concentration grant per ADA, unless the COE and the district of residence agree on an alternative amount.

To account for this transfer in SACS, school districts will use Object Code 7142 (Other Tuition, Excess Costs, and/or Deficit Payments to County Offices) to record the payment to COEs. COEs will use Object Code 8710 (Tuition) to record the receipt from districts. All LEAs will use the unrestricted Resource Code 0000.

To help understand the basis for the transfers, the CDE has published a series of Frequently Asked Questions on the transfer of enrollment and unduplicated pupil counts in CALPADS and the flow of funds under the LCFF for students served by a COE for which the funding is allocated to the district of residence. Additionally, the Report of Attendance and CALPADS Enrollment/Unduplicated Pupil Count Transfers for District Funded County Program Students (XLSX) Excel file provides a summary of ADA and pupil counts by district of residence.

Charter Special Advance Payments

Charter Advance Payments shown on Line A-13 of the Principal Apportionment Summary are the total payments made in the First and Second Charter School Special Advance Apportionments as a result of the data submitted in the Pupil Estimates for New or Significantly Expanding Charters (PENSEC) and Charter School 20 Day Attendance (20 Day) reports. For the 2020–21 fiscal year, the PENSEC and 20 Day reports provide estimated and actual enrollment data that were adjusted by the 2019–20 statewide absence factor to determine a proxy for ADA. Charter schools that are expanding to add one or more grade levels were not provided state funding in the 2020–21 fiscal year through the Charter School Special Advance Apportionments consistent with the provisions of EC Section 43505.

School District Advance Payments of In-lieu Property Tax Transfers for New or Expanding Charter Schools, Line A-14 of the Principal Apportionment Summary, are the total in-lieu of property tax payments made to school districts at the First and Second Special Advance Apportionments based on the PENSEC and 20 Day charter school data used in the apportionment calculations.

See the CS Special Advance Apportionment, FY 2020–21 web page for information on the First and Second Charter School Special Advance apportionments.

Charter School Overpayments

Funding adjustments for charter schools are displayed on lines A-15 and A-16 of the Principal Apportionment Summary. Line A-16, PY Amount Charter Overpaid, includes overpayments not collected in the prior year that are brought forward and reduce the charter school’s current year LCFF State Aid apportionment payments. Line A-15, Amount Charter Overpaid, includes amounts overpaid based on calculations in the current period, i.e., when payments received to date exceed annualized funding in the current period. Overpayments typically result from changes between periods in ADA, local property taxes (in-lieu of property taxes for charter schools), or other data used in the apportionment calculations. In some cases, an invoice will be sent directly to the charter school to recover the overpayment.

Payment Schedule and Deferrals

Monthly payments for the P-1 Apportionment, covering the months of February through May, are available at the county level and by LEA . Pursuant to EC 14041.6, a portion of each of the February through May payments are deferred to the subsequent fiscal year (2021–22). The deferred amount for each month was determined by applying a statewide deferral factor to each LEA’s payment in order to reach the deferral amount in statute. LEAs with approved deferral exemption(s) will see the exemption amount(s) reflected in the LEA level payment schedule.

For more information on the payment schedule and deferrals, refer to the Principal Apportionment Payment Schedule web page.
