In the event of school closure and/or loss of attendance due to unforeseen emergency conditions, school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education should submit a J-13A waiver material decrease request to the CDE in order to mitigate the loss of ADA funding. Approved material decrease requests will provide these LEAs with the authority to add apportionment days to their reported ADA, thereby alleviating what would otherwise be a loss in LCFF funding.
FAQs on the J-13A waiver request forms can be found on CDE’s web site at: https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/formj13afaq.asp.
