Lodi Unified School District is expected to receive close to $4 million from the Lottery Education Fund, State Controller John Chiang announced this week. California school districts, educational institutions and other state agencies such as the California State Authority for the 2010-11 fiscal year totaled $1.12 billion.

Payments to K-12 schools and community colleges are made to county treasurers, who then distribute the money to school districts based on their size. Smaller districts will receive a smaller apportionment; New Hope, for example, is expected to get about $24,000.

The Lottery money is a very small portion of school district budgets. In Lodi Unified, for example, the amount awarded to the district is about 2 percent of its total general fund, according to Chief Business Officer Tim Hern.

The Controller’s Office makes quarterly payments based on Lottery income and unclaimed online prizes. For the fourth quarter of the fiscal year, the Controller apportioned $271.5 million from the Lottery Education Fund.
