Infant Reallocation and Growth ReportA web-based application used by special education local plan areas to view reallocation growth units for the Infant Program (ages two and younger).
Infant Program Reallocation and Growth of
Special Education Instructional Personnel Service Units
Fiscal Year 2021–22
The Budget Act of 2021 (Senate Bill 129, Chapter 69, Statutes of 2021) does not provide a growth appropriation for the Infant Program. Thus, in accordance with California Education Code (EC) Section 56432(h) (see below), the California Department of Education (CDE) will not increase the number of instructional personnel service units (units) for purposes of state apportionments. However, as in years past, the CDE makes available to each special education local plan area (SELPA) the Infant Reallocation and Growth Report through a web-based application. These units are calculated pursuant to EC Section 56432 and the Budget Act of 2021. The Description of the Infant Reallocation and Growth Report provides calculation details to guide SELPAs when reviewing the Infant Reallocation and Growth Report.
Special attention should be given to Sections 6 and 9 of the Infant Reallocation and Growth Report. A negative number on Line 6(d) (Total Units to be Released) indicates a release of units in the subsequent fiscal year. A SELPA may avoid the release of units with a CDE approved waiver, which is valid for three years from the date of approval. Section 9 of the report provides waiver information for the SELPA.
“(h) By authorizing units pursuant to this section, the superintendent shall not increase the statewide total number of instructional personnel service units for purposes of state apportionments unless an appropriation specifically for growth in the number of instructional personnel service units is made in the annual Budget Act or other legislation. If that growth appropriation is made, units authorized by the superintendent pursuant to this section are subject to the restrictions that the units shall be funded only by that growth appropriation and no other funds may be apportioned for the units.”
