13 JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 12 Purpose The Community Based English Tutoring program (CBET) funds local educational agencies to provide: free or subsidized programs of adult English language instruction to parents or other members of the community who pledge to provide personal English language tutoring to English learners.

14 JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 13 CBET Allocation  For 2008-09, a total of $49.9 million was earmarked for CBET programs.  617 LEAs applied for CBET funds  Funding is approximately $33 per EL student

15 JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 14 CBET funds may be used to provide:  Direct program services  Community notification processes  Transportation services  Background checks related to the tutoring program

16 JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 15 Frequently Asked CBET Questions  Teacher credentialing requirements  Appropriate use of CBET funds  Assessment of adult tutors  Data collection procedures  Childcare

17 JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 16 Frequently Asked Questions 5. May CBET program funds be carried over from one school year to another? Yes. CBET funds may be carried over from year to year until spent. Beginning with fiscal year 2007-08, carryover will be accounted for as restricted ending fund balance; it was previously accounted for as deferred revenue. 6. Will LEAs be required to submit any fiscal reports for the CBET program? In an effort to reduce the reporting burden on LEAs, the CDE will no longer require expenditure reports for this program. Instead, the CDE will obtain expenditure information directly from the Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS) system. 7. May CBET program funds be used in conjunction with other state and federal funding sources? How are the CBET program funds to be used in conjunction with adult education programs? These funds may be used to develop new programs or to subsidize existing programs of English language instruction for parents, guardians, and other adult community members who pledge to tutor kindergarten through grade twelve (K-12) EL students. Partnerships and collaborations with other programs that have similar purposes and goals are encouraged.
