Dear Select County and District Superintendents:

Classified School Employee Summer Assistance Program
Revised Estimated State Match Funding for the
2022–23 School Year

The purpose of this letter is to notify participating local educational agencies (LEAs) of an update to the 2022–23 school year estimated total state match for the Classified School Employee Summer Assistance Program (CSESAP). The California Department of Education (CDE) published the original estimate in the letter dated April 29, 2022 available on CDE’s website at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/csesap21estltr1.asp,  along with other relevant information about the program.

The revised estimated total state match is a result of $35,000,000 of additional funding being made available for the CSESAP for the 2022–23 school year by Section 139 of Assembly Bill 181 (Chapter 52, Statutes of 2022). The appropriation for the program has increased from $60,000,000 to $95,000,000.

Based on the original estimated data reported by LEAs in April 2022, and the revised amount of funding available, the estimated state match funding has increased from sixty-nine cents ($0.69) to one dollar ($1) for each one dollar ($1) that the classified employee elects to have withheld from their monthly paycheck for the 2022–23 school year. A copy of this letter and accompanying schedule of the estimated amount of state match funding for each participating LEA is available on the CSESAP FY 2021-22 Funding Results web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/csesap21result.asp.

LEAs that met the April 1, 2022 application requirement and complete the request for payment by July 31, 2023, will be included in the August 2023 apportionment. LEAs request payment by reporting actual withholdings for participating classified employees using a web-based request for payment form located on the CSESAP Request for Application web page at, https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/csesap22rfa.asp. The CSESAP request for application will be available from mid-June through July 31, 2023.

For additional information on the CSESAP including funding, key dates, and frequently asked questions, refer to the CSESAP web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/csesap.asp. For questions regarding this program, please contact the Categorical Allocations and Audit Resolution Office by email at CSESAP@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Dearstyne, Director
