Dear County Superintendents of Schools:

NOTICE OF THE SECOND APPORTIONMENT FOR THE
QUALITY EDUCATION INVESTMENT ACT OF 2006
FISCAL YEAR 2010-11

This apportionment, in the amount of $80,081,325, is made from funds provided in California Education Code (EC) Section 52055.770 in support of the Quality Education Investment Act (QEIA) of 2006 program. This apportionment reflects the calculation of final entitlements for fiscal year 2010-11. As a result, each participating school district and charter school is receiving an amount equal to its final 2010-11 entitlement less funds apportioned in fall 2010 based on estimated entitlements.

School districts and chartering authorities that receive QEIA funds applied to participate in the program on behalf of their elementary, secondary, and charter schools, met the eligibility requirements pursuant to subdivisions (b), (c), and (d) of EC Section 52055.720, and 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, is replaced by another school by State Board of Education waiver, 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 2014-15.

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).

As provided in EC Section 52055.770, annual funding is equal to $500 per pupil enrolled in kindergarten and grades one through three, inclusive, $900 per pupil in grades four through eight, inclusive, and $1,000 per pupil in grades nine through twelve, inclusive. The pupil counts used to calculate the funding are the selected schools’ certified fiscal year 2009-10 enrollment as reported in the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement System for October 2009.

Beginning in fiscal year 2010-11, letters of apportionment from the California Department of Education’s (CDE) School Fiscal Services Division are no longer being mailed to the county superintendents of schools. Instead, county superintendents will be notified of each apportionment by e-mail. Accordingly, the CDE has sent an e-mail to each county superintendent, addressed to the county’s CDEfisc e-mail address, to inform him or her of this apportionment. The e-mail contained a link to the CDE Categorical Programs Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/ where, under the program name, the letter and schedule for this apportionment are posted. The CDE requested that the e-mail be forwarded to all school districts in the county.

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

If you have any questions regarding this program or apportionment, please contact Robert Storelli, Education Programs Consultant, Regional Coordination and Support Office, by phone at 916-319-0482 or by e-mail at bstorelli@cde.ca.gov. Questions concerning the payment process should be directed to Karen Almquist, Assistant Fiscal Consultant, Categorical Allocations and Management Assistance Office, by phone at 916-327-4406 or by e-mail at kalmquis@cde.ca.gov [Note: the preceding contact information is no longer valid and has been replaced by Julie Klein Briggs, Fiscal Consultant, Categorical Allocations & Management Assistance Unit, by phone at 916-323-6191 or by e-mail at jbriggs@cde.ca.gov.]

Sincerely,

 

Jeannie Oropeza, Deputy Superintendent
