November 29, 2018 Question: How do nonclassroom-based charter schools apply for a funding determination?

Answer: A nonclassroom-based charter school (NCB) must request a funding determination with the CDE to be eligible for funding for its NCB ADA, in accordance with Education Code sections 47612.5 and 47634.2, and California Code of Regulations, Title 5. New NCB charter schools are required to file in their first year of operation while NCB charter schools with expiring funding determinations must renew their funding determinations in the final fiscal year of their existing funding determination period. Generally, new NCB charter schools are limited to a two-year funding determination period while NCB charter schools with expiring funding determinations can be approved for a minimum period of two years to a maximum of five years in length.

The due dates to file a determination of funding request with the CDE are as follows:
New NCB charter schools in their first year of operation in FY 2018-19:
Due on or before December 3, 2018.
NCB charter schools with an approved funding determination that will expire at the end of the FY 2018-19:
Due on or before February 1, 2019.
