The California Department of Education (CDE) will apportion funds to participating (LEAs) to provide up to a dollar for dollar match on amounts withheld

Paycheck

You will receive the 2022/2023 matching funds AFTER the June 30, 2023 paycheck.

The Lammersville Unified School District has decided to participate in the California Summer Assistance Program for Classified employees in the 2022/2023 school year.  The State will set aside funds in order to provide participating classified employees with up to one dollar ($1) for each one dollar ($1) that the classified employee elects to have withheld from their monthly paychecks (up to 10% of their annual salary).

 

Please note that depending on the number of participating Classified employees in this program, you may not receive the full dollar for dollar match.  All matching funds come from the State of California; the District is not responsible for matching funds if the dollar for dollar is not met in full.  You will have the option to withdraw from the program after learning of the match amount between June 1, 2022 and September 9, 2022.  The match amount will be posted on the District website no later than June 1, 2022.  This worksheet is designed to help you determine if you are eligible and to understand the basic rules of participation.
