Funding Description

Reimbursement funding is available to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) that in the 2006-07 fiscal year received funding for and provided educational services to adults in correctional facilities. Beginning in fiscal year 2007-08, funding for this program will be apportioned through the Principal Apportionment for future years.

Required Eligibility Criteria LEAs that received funding for Adults in Correctional Facilities in the prior fiscal year are eligible. Funds for new LEAs are contingent on funds made available as a result of a reduction or the elimination of an existing LEA's level of funding.
Other Eligibility Considerations For apportionment purposes, the classes maintained for adults in correctional facilities must meet the requirements set forth in Education Code Section 41976. The term "correctional facilities" includes any county jail, county industrial farm, or county or joint county road camp.

Allocation Formula Of the $14,971,000 budget appropriation, $0 was provided for a cost-of-living adjustment and growth.

Funding for 2010-11 is equal to the 2007-08 rate per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the 2009-10 funded ADA. The rate per ADA is the lesser of the rate received in 2007-08, or 80 percent of the 2007-08 statewide average adult education revenue limit amount. Funded ADA is the lesser of the reported 2009-10 Annual ADA or the LEAs' ADA cap for 2009-10. The 2009-10 cap for LEAs with 20 units or less of ADA in 2008-09 is equal to the LEA's 2008-09 ADA plus 20 ADA for growth. The cap for LEAs with more than 20 units of ADA in 2008-09 is the ADA cap for the 2008-09 plus two and one-half percent for growth.

If growth funds are insufficient, an adjustment will be made to the per-pupil growth rates.
