Funding Considerations: What Has Not Changed

Since the adoption of the Local Control Funding Formula includes requirements to serve LEP, EDY, and foster youth the EIA program was de-funded after the 2012-13 allocation cycle. EIA carryover funds must still be reported on the ConApp and abide by the rules herein.

The California Department of Education is responsible to monitor and audit the use of such funds to ensure that they are expended for eligible pupils according to the purposes for which the legislation was established for such programs. (EC 62002, 62002.5 and 63003)
