(2) In the case of a charter school that does not elect to receive its funding directly pursuant to Section 47651, the warrant shall be drawn in favor of the superintendent of schools of the county in which the local educational agency that granted the charter is located or was designated the oversight agency by the board pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (k) of Section 47605, for deposit to the appropriate funds or accounts of the local educational agency.

(3) In the case of a charter school, the charter of which was granted by the State Board of Education, but for which the board has not delegated oversight responsibilities pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (k) of Section 47605, the warrant shall be drawn in favor of the superintendent of schools in the county where the local educational agency is located that initially denied the charter that was later approved by the board. The county superintendent of schools is authorized to establish appropriate funds or accounts in the county treasury for each charter school.
