The Lammersville Unified School District/San Joaquin County Office of Education is pleased to inform you that it will participate in the Summer Assistance Benefits for Classified Employees program, which was passed by legislation, Ed. Code sec. 45500.


This legislation appropriates a one-time amount of $90,000,000 to the State School Fund for allocation by the State Department of Education (SDE) into the Classified School Employee Summer Assistance Program (CSESAP). This legislation could provide classified employees who work less than 12 months per year with additional funds during the summer recess period in 2024.


Under this legislation, LEAs may elect to participate in the program for the 2023-2024 school year, and eligible classified employees may elect to participate in the program. The program will provide the employee up to one dollar ($1) for each one dollar ($1) that the employee elects to have withheld from his/her monthly paycheck. The employee may elect to withhold up to 10% of his/her monthly pay during the school year.
