Middle and High School Supplemental School Counseling Program (Flexible Funds)

Funding Description

Funding for this program is unrestricted pursuant to SBX3 4 (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), enacted February 2009. For additional information, please refer to the Action on 2008 and 2009 Budget Acts Web page.

Before 2008-09, the funds were restricted to the Middle and High School Supplemental School Counseling program, which allocated funds to school districts and direct-funded charter schools that maintained grades seven through twelve, inclusive. Funding supports additional, appropriate counseling services for students in grades seven through twelve at risk of (1) not passing the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) or (2) not accessing the standards curriculum because they are two or more grade levels below standards by the seventh grade. This supplemental funding will be used to increase the access for those students to appropriate counseling services.

Allocation Formula For 2009-10, LEAs will receive the same amount as 2008-09, less approximately 5.57 percent. Funding for this program from fiscal years 2009-10 through 2012-13 will be based on 2008-09 funding levels. LEAs will receive the same percentage of the available funding that they received of the funding allocated in 2008-09.

For fiscal year 2008-09, balances for over 50 programs that were unallocated, unexpended, or not liquidated as of June 30, 2009, were reverted, with an equivalent amount appropriated to fiscal year 2009-10 for allocation. These funds will be released as 2009-10 funding and may be used to reimburse 2008-09 expenditures. Of the amount shown as available for this program, $176,908,000 is associated with the 2008-09 reversion and $167,043,000 is from the 2009-10 appropriation.
