Dear Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools:

Apportionment for the Development of Public Education
Resources Regarding the Value of Equity and Inclusion for
Students with Disabilities
Fiscal Year 2022–23

This apportionment, in the amount of $2,000,000, is made to the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) from funds provided in Item 6100-488, Provision 10, of the Budget Act of 2022 (Chapter 43, Statutes of 2022), as amended by Section 186 of Assembly Bill 178 (Chapter 45, Statutes of 2022). This apportionment reflects 100 percent of available funds appropriated in fiscal year 2022–23.

Funds are allocated to the SCOE for the development, curation, production, and dissemination of public education resources regarding the value of equity and inclusion for students with disabilities. These resources shall be:

  • Specifically designed to assist families, education partners, and community members in understanding the immediate and life-long benefits of increased school and community inclusion and belonging for students with all levels of support needs, and highlight the current evidence-based practices to support such efforts.
  • Developed in consultation with either an institute of higher education or non-profit organization, that has conducted extensive research on development or implementation of evidence-based inclusive practices for students with disabilities.
  • Developed with input from California Family Empowerment Centers and representatives of the Supporting Inclusive Practices project, to ensure they are useful and relevant to families of students with disabilities and disseminated in a manner that aligns with the statewide system of support pursuant to Article 4.5 (commencing with Section 52059.5) of Chapter 6.1 of Part 28 of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Education Code. Strategies for supporting students with disabilities, who are also members of other unduplicated student groups or identities, including pupils with limited English proficiency, foster and homeless youth, socioeconomically disadvantaged youth, and LGBTQIA+ youth, shall be represented in the array of resources disseminated, to increase understanding of intersectionality and reduce biases.
  • Grounded in presumption of competence of all students and highlight ways to increase access to grade-level, standards-based instruction.

In order to meet statutory reporting requirements pursuant to Provision 10(c), the SCOE will be required to submit quarterly updates and annual reports to the Special Education Division at the California Department of Education (CDE).

A warrant will be mailed to the Sacramento County Treasurer approximately three weeks from the date of this letter. For standardized account code structure coding, use Resource Code 7810, Sacramento COE Resources for Equity and Inclusion for Students with Disabilities, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.

The SCOE was notified of this apportionment by email, which was sent to its CDEfisc email address.
