- The Oral Health Assessment program reimbursed local educational agencies for costs associated with requirements related to oral health assessments for public school students enrolled in kindergarten (or first grade if student was not previously enrolled in public school kindergarten).
School districts received funding based on an annual rate per pupil enrolled in first grade as reported in the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS). School districts with a total first grade enrollment less than a specified amount received minimum funding of $500.
County offices of education (COE) received funds for their staff and other non-system costs of collecting, maintaining, and reporting data. The COE allocations were based on the number of eligible schools and districts within each county serving first grade students as reported in the CBEDS enrollment collection. Funds were first allocated based on an annual rate per eligible district, and the remaining funds were allocated based on the number of eligible schools with minimum funding of $500 per COE.
