Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

This apportionment is 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 Non-Maintenance of Effort (Consortia) 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. The first payment, in the amount of $20,819,713, consists of the July through April payments. Subsequently, $2,081,970 will be apportioned at the end of each month for May and June 2016 for this same purpose. The total Consortia funding in this third apportionment is $24,983,653.

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 http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/adulted15result.asp.

  • Per EC Section 84906(a), have approved an adult education plan that addresses that fiscal year, with detailed information as specified in EC Section 84906(b).
