Dear County Superintendents of Schools:


This apportionment, in the amount of $188,776,005, is made from funds provided in Item 6100-139-8080 of the Budget Act of 2017 (Chapter 14, Statutes of 2017), in support of the Proposition 39 – California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39) Energy Planning Funds and Energy Expenditure Plans (EEPs). This apportionment is for those EEPs approved and reported to the California Department of Education (CDE) from the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) as of October 4,2017.

Proposition 39, a voter approved initiative at the November 2012 statewide general election, provides for annual transfers from the General Fund to the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund for a period of five years, 2013–14 through 2017–18. The Budget Act of 2017 appropriated $376.2 million of that transfer to K–12 local educational agencies (LEAs) with 85 percent of the appropriation to be allocated based on 2016–17 average daily attendance (ADA) and 15 percent based on 2016–17 eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. Proposition 39 funds will be provided to LEAs to improve energy efficiency and create clean energy jobs. The amount paid in this apportionment includes the lesser of each LEA’s EEP amount approved, net of amounts paid with prior years’ Proposition 39 funds, or the 2017–18 award allocation available. 

The Proposition 39 Guidelines and the EEP Handbook are available on the Energy Commission Web page at [Note: the preceding link is incorrect. Please visit the Energy Commission Web page at], and include information on how LEAs will submit EEPs to the Energy Commission for approval and how the CDE will disburse the funds. Total Proposition 39 award allocations, funds available for energy planning and energy projects, and remaining balances can be found on the CDE Web page at

The county superintendents of schools were notified of this apportionment by e-mail, which was sent to their CDEfisc e-mail addresses. The CDE requested that the e-mail be forwarded to the school districts and charter schools 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 2017–18.

Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 6230, California Clean Energy Jobs Act, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue. Pursuant to Assembly Bill 99 (Chapter 15, Statutes of 2017) enacted in June 2017, the deadline to encumber funds is extended by 12 months to June 30, 2019.

If you have any questions regarding this payment, please contact Derrick Andrade, Fiscal Consultant, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Office, by phone at 916‑327-5922 or by e-mail at If you have general questions regarding the Proposition 39 Program, please contact the Energy Commission by phone at 855‑380‑8722 or by e-mail at
