State and Federal Money Is Earmarked for Special Purposes
Statewide about one-third of the funds that K-12 schools receive in 2007-08 are from categorical programs designated to serve specific purposes. School agencies receive varying amounts depending on district characteristics, the programs they choose to operate, and the proportion of the state's 6.3 million students that they serve. These tables list the major state and federal categorical programs for public education and the money earmarked for each in the 2007-08 California State Budget. The tables also compare 2007-08 funding levels with those of 2006-07. A list of resources to learn more is also provided. (Contains 7 notes.)
