LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 97, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review. School finance: local control funding formula.
(1) Existing law provides for the attendance of apprentices at high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, community colleges, and adult schools under vocational education program standards that are established with the participation of the State Department of Education, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations.
Existing law establishes standards for the provision of state funding and reimbursements for these programs at high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, and adult schools separate from these programs at community colleges. Existing law requires, by March 15, 2014, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations, with equal participation by specified entities, to develop common administrative practices and treatment for costs and services, as well as other policies related to apprenticeship programs.
This bill would amend these provisions so that they refer to local educational agencies, as defined to mean a school district or county office of education, rather than to high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, and adult schools. The bill would change the deadline for the development of common administrative practices and treatment of costs and services by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations by one day to March 14, 2014.
(2) Existing law establishes the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund, and authorizes loans to be made from the fund to qualifying charter schools. Existing law establishes the Charter School Security Fund, and authorizes deposits to be made from that fund into the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund in case of a default on a loan made from the latter fund. Existing law has transferred the responsibility for the administration of these funds from the State Department of Education to the California School Finance Authority commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year. Existing law also establishes the Charter School Facility Grant Program under the administration of the authority. Existing law requires the authority to adopt emergency regulations to implement these provisions.
This bill would authorize, rather than require, the California School Finance Authority to adopt any necessary rules and regulations for the implementation of these provisions.
(3) Existing law requires the Controller to transfer from Section A of the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account the amount of funds necessary to pay certain warrants so that the effective cost of the lease financing provided to the Oakland Unified School District, the Vallejo City Unified School District, and the West Contra Costa Unified School District is equal to the cost of the original General Fund emergency loan made to each school district. Existing law also specifies the original interest rate to be used in determining the cost of the original emergency loan made for these school districts.
This bill would require the Controller, for the 2013–14 to 2029–30 fiscal years, inclusive, to make that transfer with respect to the lease financing provided to the South Monterey County Joint Union High School District pursuant to a specified 2009 statute. The bill would specify the original interest rate to be used in determining the cost of the original emergency loan for the South Monterey County Joint Union High School District as equal to the annual rate of return of the Pooled Money Investment Account for the applicable fiscal year, plus an additional 2%. The bill would require this rate to also apply to any disbursements of the loan pursuant to the 2009 statute that are subsequent to September 15, 2013. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the South Monterey County Joint Union High School District.
(4) Existing law establishes a public school financing system that requires state funding for county superintendents of schools, school districts, and charter schools to be calculated pursuant to a local control funding formula, as specified. Existing law requires, as part of the local control funding formula calculation, the calculation of an annual local control funding formula transition adjustment that is calculated on the basis of moneys appropriated in the Budget Act of 2012 for specified programs, including, among others, regional occupational centers and programs. Existing law, for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years only, requires a county superintendent of schools and a school district that, in the 2012–13 fiscal year, received funds on behalf of, or provided funds to, a regional occupational center or program joint powers agency, to not redirect that funding for another purpose, except as specified. Existing law also requires, for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years only, a county superintendent of schools and a school district, respectively, to spend no less for regional occupational centers and programs than the amount of funds the county superintendent and school district expended in the 2012–13 fiscal year.
This bill would, for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years, require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to apportion to a regional occupational center or program joint powers agency the same amount that agency received in the 2012–13 fiscal year from specified funding sources. The bill would authorize a county office of education and school district to include expenditures made by the county office of education and the school districts within the county for purposes of regional occupational centers or programs so long as the total amount of expenditures made by the county office of education and school districts within the county equals or exceeds the total amount required to be expended for regional occupational centers or programs pursuant to specified provisions. The bill would, for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years, require the Superintendent to reduce the amount of the Budget Act of 2012 entitlement for regional occupational centers and programs used in the computation of the local control funding formula transition adjustment for the Torrance Unified School District by $3,473,574 and would require the Torrance Unified School District to continue to allocate $3,473,574 for purposes of a regional occupational center or program joint powers agency. The bill would also make numerous technical and substantive changes to provisions related to the local control funding formula.
(5) Existing law requires a county board of education and a governing board of a school district to annually adopt a budget, as specified, and requires the Superintendent to approve the budget adopted by the county board of education and the county superintendent of schools to approve the budget adopted by the governing board of a school district. Existing law requires the budgets to not be adopted if they do not include the expenditures identified in a local control and accountability plan or an annual update to the local control and accountability plan that will be effective in the subsequent fiscal year. Existing law also requires, if a budget is disapproved, the formation of a budget review committee, as specified.
This bill would, commencing with the 2014–15 fiscal year, require that a budget review committee not be formed if the sole reason for a budget not being approved is the lack of an approved local control and accountability plan or an annual update.
(6) Existing law requires a county superintendent of schools and a school district to expend no less for home-to-school transportation programs than the amount of funds the county superintendent of schools and school district, respectively, expended for home-to-school transportation in the 2012–13 fiscal year.
This bill would, for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years, if a home-to-school transportation joint powers agency received, in the 2012–13 fiscal year, an apportionment of funds directly from the Superintendent for any of specified funding sources, require the Superintendent to apportion the same amount to the home-to-school transportation joint powers agency.
(7) Existing law, as part of the local control funding formula, requires a county superintendent of schools, school district, and charter school to annually report the enrollment of unduplicated pupils, defined as pupils classified as English learners, pupils eligible for free and reduced-price meals, and foster youth, to the Superintendent.
This bill would require the Superintendent to establish procedures and timeframes for the annual reporting of this information.
(8) Existing law, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, requires the Superintendent to increase certain funding amounts related to necessary small schools by an amount proportionate to the increase in the statewide average local control funding formula allocations for the then current fiscal year.
This bill, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, would instead require the Superintendent to increase the funding amount related to necessary small schools by the percentage change in the annual average value of a certain deflator, as specified.
(9) Existing law requires the State Department of Education and the State Department of Social Services to enter into a memorandum of understanding that requires the State Department of Social Services, at least once per week, to share information related to foster youth with the State Department of Education.
This bill would require the State Department of Education and the State Department of Social Services to enter into the memorandum of understanding on or before February 1, 2014.
(10) Existing law requires a school district and a county superintendent of schools to adopt a local control accountability plan using a template adopted by the State Board of Education. Existing law requires the local control and accountability plan to include a description of the annual goals to be achieved for each of certain state priorities and the specific actions that will be taken to achieve the annual goals. Existing law requires the governing board of a school district and the county superintendent of schools to consult with teachers, principals, administrators, other school personnel, parents, and pupils in developing the local control and accountability plan. Existing law requires the county superintendent of schools to approve a local control and accountability plan or annual update to a local control and accountability plan adopted by the governing board of a school district, and requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to approve a local control and accountability plan or annual update to a local control and accountability plan adopted by the county board of education, if specified determinations are made. Existing law establishes the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence for the purpose of advising and assisting school districts, county superintendents of schools, and charter schools in achieving the goals set forth in a local control and accountability plan and requires the Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, to contract with individuals, local educational agencies, or organizations with the expertise, experience, and record of success to carry out the purposes of local control accountability plans.
This bill would require the local control and accountability plan to also include a listing and description of the expenditures for the fiscal year implementing the specific actions and the expenditures for the fiscal year that will serve unduplicated pupils, as defined, and pupils redesignated as fluent English proficient. The bill would require the governing board of a school district and county superintendent of schools to also consult with their local bargaining units in developing the local control and accountability plan. The bill would require the county superintendent of schools and the Superintendent, in approving a local control and accountability plan or annual update to a local control and accountability plan approved by the governing board of a school district or county board of education, respectively, to also determine if the local control and accountability plan or annual update adheres to specified expenditure requirements relating to unduplicated pupils. The bill would require the Superintendent to contract with a local educational agency, or consortium of local educational agencies, to serve as the fiscal agent for the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence and would establish a governing board for the collaborative consisting of 5 members, as specified. The bill would, at the direction of the governing board of the collaborative, require the fiscal agent for the collaborative to contract with individuals, local educational agencies, or organizations with the expertise, experience, and record of success to carry out the purposes of local control and accountability plans.
(11) Existing law provides for the calculation of apportionments to fund the provision of special education instruction and services for pupils who qualify for these programs.
This bill would require that a specified appropriation in the Budget Act of 2013 be included in the calculation of the statewide target amount per unit of average daily attendance used to determine adjustments to special education apportionments for the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(12) Existing law establishes the Student Aid Commission as the primary state agency for administering of state-authorized student financial aid programs available to students attending all segments of postsecondary education. Existing law establishes the Middle Class Scholarship Program under the administration of the Student Aid Commission. The program provides that, subject to an available and sufficient appropriation, commencing with the 2014–15 academic year, undergraduate students enrolled at the University of California or the California State University shall receive a scholarship award that, combined with other publicly funded student financial aid, is up to 40% of the amount charged to that student for mandatory systemwide tuition in that fiscal year if the student meets the following conditions: has an annual household income that does not exceed $150,000; satisfies specified requirements for a Cal Grant award; is a resident of this state or exempt from paying nonresident tuition; files specified financial aid forms; makes timely application or applications for publicly funded student financial aid, as defined, for which he or she is eligible; and maintains at least a 2.0 grade point average.
The program requires, in order for students enrolled in their respective segments to remain eligible to receive financial aid under the bill, that the University of California and the California State University maintain their respective institutional need-based grant program policies and maintain their funding amounts at a level that, at a minimum, is equal to the level maintained during the 2013–14 academic year.
This bill would provide that the scholarship award under the Middle Class Scholarship, combined with other publicly funded student financial aid, would be for up to 40% of the mandatory systemwide tuition and fees, rather than up to 40% of the mandatory systemwide tuition, charged to an eligible student in a fiscal year.
The bill would require that an eligible student maintain satisfactory academic progress, rather than a 2.0 grade point average, to receive a scholarship award under the program.
The bill would also require the University of California and the California State University to not supplant their respective institutional need-based grants with funds provided for scholarships under the program, rather than maintain their respective need-based grant program policies, as specified.
(13) Existing law requires the Controller to draw warrants on the State Treasury in each month of the year for the purpose of funding school districts, county superintendents of schools, and community college districts. Existing law defers the drawing of specified warrants until later dates. With respect to community colleges, existing law appropriates $591,233,000 from the General Fund to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, for expenditure during the 2014–15 fiscal year, in satisfaction of specified moneys whose payment to the California Community Colleges has been deferred.
This bill would decrease the amount of apportionment to the California Community Colleges to be deferred from the month of February to the month of July from $55,233,000 to $52,456,000. The bill would also increase the amount of the appropriation from the General Fund to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, for expenditure during the 2014–15 fiscal year, in satisfaction of specified deferred amounts from $591,233,000 to $592,456,000.
(14) Existing law, commencing with the 2012–13 fiscal year, requires certain funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act for reimbursement of the cost of a new program or increased level of service of an existing program mandated by statute or executive order to be available as a block grant to school districts, charter schools, county offices of education, and community college districts, to support specified state-mandated local programs. Existing law provides that a school district, charter school, county office of education, or community college district that submits a letter of intent to the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, as appropriate, and receives this block grant funding is not eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement for those specified mandated programs for the fiscal year for which the block grant funding is received.
This bill, with respect to community colleges, would add the collective bargaining agreement disclosure mandate to the list of specified state-mandated local programs that are subject to these provisions that authorize block grant funding in lieu of program-specific reimbursement.
(15) The California Clean Energy Jobs Act, an initiative approved by the voters as Proposition 39 at the November 6, 2012, statewide general election, made changes to corporate income taxes and, except as specified, provides for the transfer of $550,000,000 annually from the General Fund to the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund, or the Job Creation Fund, for 5 fiscal years beginning with the 2013–14 fiscal year. Moneys in the Job Creation Fund are available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for purposes of funding eligible projects that create jobs in California improving energy efficiency and expanding clean energy generation. Existing law provides for the allocation of available funds to public school facilities, university and college facilities, and other public buildings and facilities, as well as job training and workforce development and public-private partnerships for eligible projects, as specified. Existing law establishes prescribed criteria that apply to all expenditures from the Job Creation Fund.
This bill would make various revisions in the provisions of the act relating to the allocation of Job Creation Fund moneys to schools, including specifying the calculation of average daily attendance for state special schools for these purposes, and clarifying the scope of an authorization for smaller local educational agencies to elect to receive 2 years of this funding at once.
(16) Existing law authorizes the Inglewood Unified School District, through the State Department of Education, to request cashflow loans from the General Fund for a total of $55,000,000.
This bill would require that the terms and conditions of the General Fund cashflow loan to include authorization for the payment of costs incurred before June 15, 2013, by the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank to implement a specified provision. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Inglewood Unified School District.
(17) Existing law, the Budget Act of 2013, appropriates $35,488,000 from the General Fund to the State Department of Education for support of various activities of the department.
This bill would appropriate an additional $3,164,000 for the support of the Career Technical Education Pathways Trust one-time grant program, Local Control Accountability Plan state-level activities, and Local Control Funding Formula administration, as specified.
(18) Existing law, the Budget Act of 2013, appropriates $250,000,000 from the General Fund to the State Department of Education for one-time grants for the Career Technical Education Pathways Grant Program, as specified.
This bill would, on a one-time basis, appropriate $250,000 of the $250,000,000 for an independent evaluation of the Career Technical Education Pathways Grant Program, and would require the department to allocate this funding to a local educational agency that the department has identified to contract for the evaluation.
(19)  This bill would, on or before June 30, 2014, authorize the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges to increase certain General Fund apportionment allocations, in an amount to be determined by the Director of Finance, to the extent that revenues distributed to local community colleges pursuant to provisions related to redevelopment agencies are less than the amount estimated in the Budget Act of 2012, as specified. The bill would require the Director of Finance to notify the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or his or her designee, of his or her intent to increase the total allocations and the amount needed to address the shortfall described above.
(20) This bill would, on or before December 31, 2013, appropriate, in an amount to be determined by the Director of Finance, up to $100,000,000 from the General Fund to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as specified, to the extent that revenues distributed to local community colleges pursuant to provisions related to redevelopment agencies are less than the amount estimated in the Budget Act of 2012, as specified. The bill would, on or before December 31, 2013, require the Director of Finance to reduce, as specified, an existing appropriation from the General Fund to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges if the revenues distributed to local community colleges pursuant to provisions related to redevelopment agencies exceed the amount estimated in the Budget Act of 2012. The bill would require the Director of Finance to notify the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or his or her designee, of his or her intent to notify the Controller of the necessity to increase or decrease the total allocations and of the amount needed to address the shortfall or surplus described above.
(21)  This bill would make conforming changes, correct cross-references, and make other nonsubstantive changes.
(22) This bill would incorporate additional changes in Sections 42127, 52060, 52061, 52064, and 52066 of the Education Code proposed by SB 344, to be operative only if SB 344 and this bill are both enacted and become effective on or before January 1, 2014, to the extent each bill amends Sections 42127, 52060, 52061, 52064, and 52066 of the Education Code, and this bill is enacted after SB 344.
(23)  Funds appropriated by this bill would be applied toward the minimum funding requirements for school districts and community college districts imposed by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, as specified.
(24)  This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.

For purposes of this subdivision, a negative certification shall be assigned to a county office of education that, based upon current projections, will not meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the fiscal year or for the subsequent fiscal year. A qualified certification shall be assigned to a county office of education that may not meet its financial obligations for the current fiscal year or two subsequent fiscal years. A positive certification shall be assigned to a county office of education that will meet its financial obligations for the current fiscal year and subsequent two fiscal years. In accordance with those standards, the Superintendent may reclassify a certification.

Copies of each certification, and of the report containing that certification, shall be sent to the Superintendent at the time the certification is submitted to the county board of education. Copies of each qualified or negative certification and the report containing that certification shall be sent to the Controller at the time the certification is submitted to the county board of education.
(i) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, notwithstanding any of the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127, each county office of education budget shall project the same level of revenue per unit of average daily attendance as it received in the 2010–11 fiscal year and shall maintain staffing and program levels commensurate with that level.
(ii) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, the county superintendent shall not be required to certify in writing whether or not the county office of education is able to meet its financial obligations for the two subsequent fiscal years.

(2) All reports and certifications required under this subdivision shall be in a format or on forms prescribed by the Superintendent, and shall be based on standards and criteria for fiscal stability adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127. The reports and supporting data shall be made available by the county superintendent to an interested party upon request.
(3) This subdivision does not preclude the submission of additional budgetary or financial reports by the county superintendent to the county board of education or to the Superintendent.
(4) The county superintendent is not responsible for the fiscal oversight of the community colleges in the county, however, he or she may perform financial services on behalf of those community colleges.
(m) If requested, act as agent for the purchase of supplies for the city and high school districts of his or her county.
(n) For purposes of Section 44421.5, report to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing the identity of a certificated person who knowingly and willingly reports false fiscal expenditure data relative to the conduct of an educational program. This requirement applies only if, in the course of his or her normal duties, the county superintendent discovers information that gives him or her reasonable cause to believe that false fiscal expenditure data relative to the conduct of an educational program has been reported.
(o) If any activities authorized pursuant to this section are found to be a state reimbursable mandate pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution, funding provided for school districts and county offices of education pursuant to Sections 2574, 2575, 42238.02, and 42238.03 shall be used to directly offset any mandated costs.

 Section 2558 of the Education Code is amended to read:

2558.
 Notwithstanding any other law, for the 1979–80 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent shall apportion state aid to county superintendents of schools pursuant to this section.

(2) Determine the actual amount of employer contributions made to the Public Employees’ Retirement System in the current fiscal year.
(3) If the amount determined in paragraph (1) is greater than the amount determined in paragraph (2), the total revenue limit computed pursuant to this part for that county superintendent of schools shall be decreased by the amount of the difference between those paragraphs; or if the amount determined in paragraph (1) is less than the amount determined in paragraph (2), the total revenue limit for that county superintendent of schools shall be increased by the amount of the difference between those paragraphs.
(4) For purposes of this subdivision, employer contributions to the Public Employees’ Retirement System for either of the following positions shall be excluded from the calculation specified above:

(6) The amount of the increase or decrease to the revenue limits of county superintendents of schools made by this subdivision for the 1995–96 to 2001–02 fiscal years, inclusive, may not be adjusted by the deficit factor applied to the revenue limit of each county superintendent of schools pursuant to Section 2558.45.

(c) The Superintendent shall also subtract from the amount determined in subdivision (a) the sum of all of the following:
(1) Local property tax revenues received pursuant to Section 2573 in the then current fiscal year, and tax revenues received pursuant to Section 2556 in the then current fiscal year.
(2) State and federal categorical aid for the fiscal year.
(3) District contributions pursuant to Section 52321 for the fiscal year, and other applicable local contributions and revenues.
(4) Any amounts that the county superintendent of schools was required to maintain as restricted and not available for expenditure in the 1978–79 fiscal year as specified in the second paragraph of subdivision (c) of Section 6 of Chapter 292 of the Statutes of 1978, as amended by Chapter 51 of the Statutes of 1979.

(6) The amount, if any, received pursuant to Sections 34177, 34179.5, 34179.6, and 34188 of the Health and Safety Code.
(7) The amount, if any, received pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution.
(d) The remainder computed in subdivision (c) shall be distributed in the same manner as state aid to school districts from funds appropriated to Section A of the State School Fund.
(e) If the remainder determined pursuant to subdivision (c) is a negative amount, no state aid shall be distributed to that county superintendent of schools pursuant to subdivision (d), and an amount of funds of that county superintendent of schools equal to that negative amount shall be deemed restricted and not available for expenditure during the current fiscal year. In the next fiscal year, that amount shall be considered local property tax revenue for purposes of the operation of paragraph (1) of subdivision (c).
(f) The calculations set forth in paragraphs (1) to (3), inclusive, of subdivision (b) exclude employer contributions for employees of charter schools funded pursuant to Article 2 (commencing with Section 47633) of Chapter 6 of Part 26.8 of Division 4 of Title 2.

(h) This section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2021, and, as of January 1, 2022, is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that becomes operative on or before January 1, 2022, deletes or extends the dates on which it becomes inoperative and is repealed.

 (a) On or before July 1 of each year, the governing board of each school district shall accomplish the following:
(1) Hold a public hearing on the budget to be adopted for the subsequent fiscal year. The budget to be adopted shall be prepared in accordance with Section 42126. The agenda for that hearing shall be posted at least 72 hours before the public hearing and shall include the location where the budget will be available for public inspection.
(A) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, notwithstanding any of the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127, each school district budget shall project the same level of revenue per unit of average daily attendance as it received in the 2010–11 fiscal year and shall maintain staffing and program levels commensurate with that level.
(B) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, the school district shall not be required to demonstrate that it is able to meet its financial obligations for the two subsequent fiscal years.
(2) Adopt a budget. Not later than five days after that adoption or by July 1, whichever occurs first, the governing board of the school district shall file that budget with the county superintendent of schools. The budget and supporting data shall be maintained and made available for public review. If the governing board of the school district does not want all or a portion of the property tax requirement levied for the purpose of making payments for the interest and redemption charges on indebtedness as described in paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 1 of Article XIII A of the California Constitution, the budget shall include a statement of the amount or portion for which a levy shall not be made. For the 2014–15 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the governing board of the school district shall not adopt a budget before the governing board of the school district adopts a local control and accountability plan, if an existing local control and accountability plan or annual update to a local control and accountability plan is not effective for the budget year. The governing board of a school district shall not adopt a budget that does not include the expenditures necessary to implement the local control and accountability plan or the annual update to a local control and accountability plan that is effective during the subsequent fiscal year.
(b) The county superintendent of schools may accept changes in any statement included in the budget, pursuant to subdivision (a), of the amount or portion for which a property tax levy shall not be made. The county superintendent of schools or the county auditor shall compute the actual amounts to be levied on the property tax rolls of the school district for purposes that exceed apportionments to the school district pursuant to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 95) of Part 0.5 of Division 1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Each school district shall provide all data needed by the county superintendent of schools or the county auditor to compute the amounts. On or before August 15, the county superintendent of schools shall transmit the amounts computed to the county auditor who shall compute the tax rates necessary to produce the amounts. On or before September 1, the county auditor shall submit the rate computed to the board of supervisors for adoption.
(c) The county superintendent of schools shall do all of the following:
(1) Examine the adopted budget to determine whether it complies with the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127 for application to final local educational agency budgets. The county superintendent of schools shall identify, if necessary, technical corrections that are required to be made to bring the budget into compliance with those standards and criteria.
(2) Determine whether the adopted budget will allow the school district to meet its financial obligations during the fiscal year and is consistent with a financial plan that will enable the school district to satisfy its multiyear financial commitments. In addition to his or her own analysis of the budget of each school district, the county superintendent of schools shall review and consider studies, reports, evaluations, or audits of the school district that were commissioned by the school district, the county superintendent of schools, the Superintendent, and state control agencies and that contain evidence that the school district is showing fiscal distress under the standards and criteria adopted in Section 33127 or that contain a finding by an external reviewer that more than 3 of the 15 most common predictors of a school district needing intervention, as determined by the County Office Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team, are present. The county superintendent of schools shall either conditionally approve or disapprove a budget that does not provide adequate assurance that the school district will meet its current and future obligations and resolve any problems identified in studies, reports, evaluations, or audits described in this paragraph.
(3) Determine whether the adopted budget includes the expenditures necessary to implement the local control and accountability plan or annual update to the local control and accountability plan approved by the county superintendent of schools.
(d) (1) On or before August 15, the county superintendent of schools shall approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove the adopted budget for each school district. For the 2014–15 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the county superintendent of schools shall disapprove a budget if the county superintendent of schools determines that the budget does not include the expenditures necessary to implement a local control and accountability plan or an annual update to the local control and accountability plan approved by the county superintendent of schools. If a school district does not submit a budget to the county superintendent of schools, the county superintendent of schools shall develop, at school district expense, a budget for that school district by September 15 and transmit that budget to the governing board of the school district. The budget prepared by the county superintendent of schools shall be deemed adopted, unless the county superintendent of schools approves any modifications made by the governing board of the school district. The approved budget shall be used as a guide for the school district’s priorities. The Superintendent shall review and certify the budget approved by the county. If, pursuant to the review conducted pursuant to subdivision (c), the county superintendent of schools determines that the adopted budget for a school district does not satisfy paragraph (1), (2), or (3) of that subdivision, he or she shall conditionally approve or disapprove the budget and, not later than August 15, transmit to the governing board of the school district, in writing, his or her recommendations regarding revision of the budget and the reasons for those recommendations, including, but not limited to, the amounts of any budget adjustments needed before he or she can approve that budget. The county superintendent of schools may assign a fiscal adviser to assist the school district to develop a budget in compliance with those revisions. In addition, the county superintendent of schools may appoint a committee to examine and comment on the superintendent’s review and recommendations, subject to the requirement that the committee report its findings to the county superintendent of schools no later than August 20. For the 2011–12 fiscal year, notwithstanding any of the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127, the county superintendent of schools, as a condition on approval of a school district budget, shall not require a school district to project a lower level of revenue per unit of average daily attendance than it received in the 2010–11 fiscal year nor require the school district to demonstrate that it is able to meet its financial obligations for the two subsequent fiscal years.
(2)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, for the 2014–15 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the budget shall not be adopted or approved by the county superintendent of schools before a local control and accountability plan or update to an existing local control and accountability plan for the budget year is approved.
(e) On or before September 8, the governing board of the school district shall revise the adopted budget to reflect changes in projected income or expenditures subsequent to July 1, and to include any response to the recommendations of the county superintendent of schools, shall adopt the revised budget, and shall file the revised budget with the county superintendent of schools. Before revising the budget, the governing board of the school district shall hold a public hearing regarding the proposed revisions, to be conducted in accordance with Section 42103. In addition, if the adopted budget is disapproved pursuant to subdivision (d), the governing board of the school district and the county superintendent of schools shall review the disapproval and the recommendations of the county superintendent of schools regarding revision of the budget at the public hearing. The revised budget and supporting data shall be maintained and made available for public review.
(1) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, notwithstanding any of the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127, each school district budget shall project the same level of revenue per unit of average daily attendance as it received in the 2010–11 fiscal year and shall maintain staffing and program levels commensurate with that level.
(2) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, the school district shall not be required to demonstrate that it is able to meet its financial obligations for the two subsequent fiscal years.
(f) On or before September 22, the county superintendent of schools shall provide a list to the Superintendent identifying all school districts for which budgets may be disapproved.
(g) (1) The county superintendent of schools shall examine the revised budget to determine whether it (1) complies with the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127 for application to final local educational agency budgets, (2) allows the school district to meet its financial obligations during the fiscal year, (3) satisfies all conditions established by the county superintendent of schools in the case of a conditionally approved budget, and (4) is consistent with a financial plan that will enable the school district to satisfy its multiyear financial commitments, and, not later than October 8, shall approve or disapprove the revised budget. If the county superintendent of schools disapproves the budget, he or she shall call for the formation of a budget review committee pursuant to Section 42127.1, unless the governing board of the school district and the county superintendent of schools agree to waive the requirement that a budget review committee be formed and the department approves the waiver after determining that a budget review committee is not necessary. Upon the grant of a waiver, the county superintendent of schools immediately has the authority and responsibility provided in Section 42127.3. Upon approving a waiver of the budget review committee, the department shall ensure that a balanced budget is adopted for the school district by November 30. If no budget is adopted by November 30, the Superintendent may adopt a budget for the school district. The Superintendent shall report to the Legislature and the Director of Finance by December 10 if any school district, including a school district that has received a waiver of the budget review committee process, does not have an adopted budget by November 30. This report shall include the reasons why a budget has not been adopted by the deadline, the steps being taken to finalize budget adoption, the date the adopted budget is anticipated, and whether the Superintendent has or will exercise his or her authority to adopt a budget for the school district. For the 2011–12 fiscal year, notwithstanding any of the standards and criteria adopted by the state board pursuant to Section 33127, the county superintendent of schools, as a condition on approval of a school district budget, shall not require a school district to project a lower level of revenue per unit of average daily attendance than it received in the 2010–11 fiscal year nor require the school district to demonstrate that it is able to meet its financial obligations for the two subsequent fiscal years.
(2) Notwithstanding any other law, for the 2014–15 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, if the county superintendent of schools disapproves the budget for the sole reason that the county superintendent of schools has not approved a local control and accountability plan or an annual update to the local control and accountability plan filed by the school district pursuant to Section 52061, the county superintendent of schools shall not call for the formation of a budget review committee pursuant to Section 42127.1.
(h) Not later than October 8, the county superintendent of schools shall submit a report to the Superintendent identifying all school districts for which budgets have been disapproved or budget review committees waived.

On or before July 1, the governing board of a school district for which the budget review is governed by this subdivision, rather than by subdivisions (e) and (g), shall conduct a public hearing regarding its proposed budget in accordance with Section 42103.
(1) If the adopted budget of a school district is disapproved pursuant to subdivision (d), on or before September 8, the governing board of the school district, in conjunction with the county superintendent of schools, shall review the superintendent’s recommendations at a regular meeting of the governing board of the school district and respond to those recommendations.

Except as provided in paragraph (2) of subdivision (g), if the county superintendent of schools disapproves the budget, he or she shall call for the formation of a budget review committee pursuant to Section 42127.1, unless the governing board of the school district and the county superintendent of schools agree to waive the requirement that a budget review committee be formed and the department approves the waiver after determining that a budget review committee is not necessary. Upon the grant of a waiver, the county superintendent has the authority and responsibility provided to a budget review committee in Section 42127.3.

This percentage change shall be determined using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year compared with the annual average value of the same deflator for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the second preceding fiscal year, using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year, as reported by the Department of Finance.
(3) (A) The Superintendent shall compute an additional adjustment to the kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, base grant as adjusted for inflation pursuant to paragraph (2) equal to 10.4 percent. The additional grant shall be calculated by multiplying the kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, base grant, as adjusted by paragraph (2), by 10.4 percent.
(B) Until paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) of Section 42238.03 is effective, as a condition of the receipt of funds in this paragraph, a school district shall make progress toward maintaining an average class enrollment of not more than 24 pupils for each schoolsite in kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, unless a collectively bargained alternative annual average class enrollment for each schoolsite in those grades is agreed to by the school district, pursuant to the following calculation:
(i) Determine a school district’s average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, in the prior year.

The supplemental grant shall be calculated by multiplying the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), by 20 percent and by the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in that school district or charter school. The supplemental grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(f) (1) The Superintendent shall compute a concentration grant add-on equal to 50 percent of the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (d), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), for each school district’s or charter school’s percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school district’s or charter school’s total enrollment. The concentration grant shall be calculated by multiplying the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (d), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), by 50 percent and by the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the total enrollment in that school district or charter school.
(2) For a charter school physically located in only one school district, the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent used to calculate concentration grants shall not exceed the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school district in which the charter school is physically located. For a charter school physically located in more than one school district, the charter school’s percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent used to calculate concentration grants shall not exceed that of the school district with the highest percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school districts in which the charter school has a school facility. The concentration grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(g) The Superintendent shall compute an add-on to the total sum of a school district’s or charter school’s base, supplemental, and concentration grants equal to the amount of funding a school district or charter school received from funds allocated pursuant to the Targeted Instructional Improvement Block Grant program, as set forth in Article 6 (commencing with Section 41540) of Chapter 3.2, for the 2012–13 fiscal year, as that article read on January 1, 2013.

 The Superintendent shall annually compute a general-purpose entitlement, funded from a combination of state aid and local funds, for each charter school as follows:
(a) The Superintendent shall annually compute the statewide average amount of general-purpose funding per unit of average daily attendance received by school districts for each of four grade level ranges: kindergarten and grades 1, 2, and 3; grades 4, 5, and 6; grades 7 and 8; and, grades 9 to 12, inclusive. For purposes of making these computations, both of the following conditions shall apply:
(1) Revenue limit funding attributable to pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 5, inclusive, shall equal the statewide average revenue limit funding per unit of average daily attendance received by elementary school districts; revenue limit funding attributable to pupils in grades 6, 7, and 8, shall equal the statewide average revenue limit funding per unit of average daily attendance received by unified school districts; and revenue limit funding attributable to pupils in grades 9 to 12, inclusive, shall equal the statewide average revenue limit funding per unit of average daily attendance received by high school districts.

(b) The Superintendent shall multiply each of the four amounts computed in subdivision (a) by the charter school’s average daily attendance in the corresponding grade level ranges. The resulting figure shall be the amount of the charter school’s general-purpose entitlement, which shall be funded through a combination of state aid and local funds. From funds appropriated for this purpose pursuant to Section 14002, the superintendent shall apportion to each charter school this amount, less local funds allocated to the charter school pursuant to Section 47635 and any amount received pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution.
(c) General-purpose entitlement funding may be used for any public school purpose determined by the governing body of the charter school.
(d) Commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, this section shall be used only for purposes of allocating revenues received pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution.

Average daily attendance reported for this program shall not exceed 0.375 percent of a school district’s prior year P2 average daily attendance in an elementary school district, 0.5 percent of a school district’s prior year P2 average daily attendance in a unified school district, or 0.625 percent of a school district’s prior year P2 average daily attendance in a high school district. The units of average daily attendance of a community day school operated by a county office of education shall not exceed the unused units of average daily attendance of the community day schools operated by the school districts within the jurisdiction of that county office of education.
(2) The Superintendent may reallocate to any school district any unexpended balance of the appropriations made for purposes of this subdivision for actual pupil attendance in excess of the percentage specified in this subdivision for the school district in an amount not to exceed one-half of that percentage. However, the average daily attendance generated by pupils expelled pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 48915, shall not be subject to these percentage caps on average daily attendance.
(b) The average daily attendance of a community day school shall be determined by dividing the total number of days of attendance in all full school months, by a divisor of 70 in the first period of each fiscal year, by a divisor of 135 in the second period of each fiscal year, and by a divisor of 180 at the annual time of each fiscal year.
(c) The Superintendent shall apportion to each school district that operates a community day school an amount equal to four dollars ($4), adjusted annually commencing with the 1999–2000 fiscal year for inflation pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 42238.1, multiplied by the total of the number of hours each schoolday, up to a maximum of two hours daily, that each community day school pupil remains at the community day school under the supervision of an employee of the school district, or a consortium of school districts pursuant to Section 48916.1, reporting the attendance of the pupils for apportionment funding following completion of the full six-hour instructional day.
(d) It is the intent of the Legislature that school districts enter into consortia, as feasible, for purposes of providing community day school programs. A school district with fewer than 2,501 units of average daily attendance may request a waiver for any fiscal year of the funding limitations set forth in this section. The Superintendent shall approve a waiver if he or she deems it necessary in order to permit the operation of a community day school of reasonably comparable quality to those offered in a school district with 2,501 or more units of average daily attendance. In no event shall the amount allocated pursuant to a waiver exceed the amount provided for one teacher pursuant to Section 42284, for pupils enrolled in kindergarten and grades 1 to 6, inclusive, or the amount provided for one teacher pursuant to Section 42284, for pupils enrolled in grades 7 to 12, inclusive. The provisions of this act shall not apply to a school district that applied for a waiver within the funding limits established by this subdivision but was denied funding or not fully funded.

(8) Pupil outcome data and other data as required under Section 48916.1.
(9) Other programmatic or fiscal matters as determined by the department.
(f) The additional funds provided in subdivisions (a), (c), and (d) shall only be allocated to the extent that funds are appropriated for this purpose in the annual Budget Act or other legislation, or both.
(g) A one-time adjustment shall be made to the amount specified in subdivision (a), for the 1998–99 fiscal year and subsequent fiscal years, by increasing that amount by the statewide average quotient resulting from dividing the average daily attendance specified in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 42238.8 by the amount specified in subparagraph (C) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 42238.8.
