Dear County Superintendents of Schools:


These apportionments are made from funds provided by an interagency agreement with the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges and Item 6100-156-0001 of the Budget Act of 2015 (Chapter 10, Statutes of 2015), in support of the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) funding for the Adult Education Block Grant Program.

Per California Education Code (EC) Section 84912, funds are apportioned in twelve equal payments to each local educational agency (LEA) on a monthly basis. Because of the time necessary to initiate this process, the first payment, in the amount of $56,144,567, consists of both the July and August payments. Subsequently, $28,072,330 will be apportioned at the end of each month from September 2015 through June [Note: The preceding month is not valid and has been replaced by April] 2016 for this same purpose. For the months of May and June 2016, $28,065,920 will be apportioned at the end of each month for this purpose. The total MOE funding is $336,867,867 [Note: The preceding amount is not valid and has been replaced by $336,438,014.]

The county superintendents of schools were notified of this apportionment by e-mail, which was sent to their CDEfisc e-mail addresses. The California Department of Education (CDE) requested that the e-mail be forwarded to the school districts in the county, and included the link to this letter and the apportionment schedule which are posted on the CDE Web page at under fiscal year 2015–16.
