    Agency History

    School statistics and reports were originally kept by a statistician in the State Superintendent's Office and later by the Division of Research and Statistics. Between 1947 and 1954 this function was administered by the Bureau of School Accounts and Records. In 1954, the Bureau of School Apportionments and Reports was created.
    The principal function of the Bureau of School Apportionments and Reports is to determine the apportionment of public school funds to the counties, school districts, and individual schools. To acquire the data necessary to determine apportionments, reports are required to be filed regarding attendance, school finances, and county, district, and school budgets.
    Records described below are organized numerically by form number. The researcher should be aware that some form numbers have changed over time as have the contents of the records. Much of the information found in these forms is now printed in the annual publication, Average Daily Attendance and Selected Financial Statistics of California School Districts or similar titles which have appeared for most years since 1943.
