Dear County Superintendents of Schools, Auditors, and Treasurers:

NOTICE OF THE THIRD APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
QUALITY EDUCATION INVESTMENT ACT OF 2006
FISCAL YEAR 2008-09

This apportionment, in the amount of $76,936,040, is made from funds provided by Senate Bill 1133 (Chapter 751, Statutes of 2006) in support of the Quality Education Investment Act (QEIA) of 2006, established in California Education Code (EC) sections 52055.700 through 52055.770. This apportionment provides the final 20 percent of the 2008-09 funding for the schools selected to participate in this program. Eighty percent of the funding was paid in July 2008.

School districts and chartering authorities receiving these funds are those that applied in fiscal year 2007-08, the first year of implementation of the program, on behalf of their elementary, secondary, and charter schools that met the eligibility requirements pursuant to subdivisions (b), (c), and (d) of EC Section 52055.720, and that were approved for program participation by the State Board of Education in its May 2007 meeting. A school selected to participate in the first year of the program continues participating unless it is terminated pursuant to subdivision (c) of EC Section 52055.740, it declines to participate, or there is evidence of fraud or fiscal irregularities. Selected schools receive funding each year through their districts, beginning in 2007-08 and continuing through 2013-14.

School districts and chartering authorities receiving funds on behalf of selected schools agreed to assurances and requirements provided in statute (Subdivision (a) of EC Section 52055.750). In addition, county superintendents of schools are required to annually review the schools in their county and the schools’ data for compliance with program requirements and timelines (EC Section 52055.740).

Funding is equal to $500 per pupil enrolled in kindergarten and grades one to three, inclusive, $900 per pupil in grades four to eight, inclusive, and $1,000 per pupil in grades nine to twelve, inclusive. The pupil counts used to calculate the funding are the selected schools’ prior year enrollment as reported in the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS).

To view the schedule for this apportionment showing, by county, the payment to each school district and chartering authority, please visit the California Department of Education Categorical Programs Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/qeia.asp.

Warrants will be mailed to each county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure (SACS) coding, use Resource Code 7400, Quality Education Investment Act, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.
