For the purposes of the allocation of property tax revenues for the 1979–80 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter pursuant to Part 0.5 (commencing with Section 95) of Division 1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, property tax revenues received for the 1977–78 fiscal year pursuant to Sections 41203 and 84203 of the Education Code, or for the 1978–79 fiscal year pursuant to Section 2 of Chapter 51, Statutes of 1979, shall be deemed to be property tax revenues received by the county superintendent of schools.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 282.)

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.

(a) The Superintendent shall total the amounts computed for the fiscal year pursuant to Sections 2550, 2551.3, 2554, 2555, and 2557 and Section 2551, as that section read on January 1, 1999. For the 1979–80 fiscal year and for purposes of calculating the 1979–80 fiscal year base amounts in succeeding fiscal years, the amounts in Sections 2550, 2551, 2552, 2554, 2555, and 2557, as they read in the 1979–80 fiscal year, shall be multiplied by a factor of 0.994. For the 1981–82 fiscal year and for purposes of calculating the 1981–82 fiscal year base amounts in succeeding fiscal years, the amount in this subdivision shall be multiplied by a factor of 0.97.

(b) For the 1995–96 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the county superintendent of schools shall adjust the total revenue limit computed pursuant to this section by the amount of increased or decreased employer contributions to the Public Employees’ Retirement System resulting from the enactment of Chapter 330 of the Statutes of 1982, adjusted for any changes in those contributions resulting from subsequent changes in employer contribution rates, excluding rate changes due to the direct transfer of the state-mandated portion of the employer contributions to the Public Employees’ Retirement System through the current fiscal year. The adjustment shall be calculated for each county superintendent of schools as follows:

(1) Determine the amount of employer contributions that would have been made in the current fiscal year if the applicable Public Employees’ Retirement System employee contribution rate in effect immediately before the enactment of Chapter 330 of the Statutes of 1982 were in effect during the current fiscal year.

(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:

(A) Positions or portions of positions supported by federal funds that are subject to supplanting restrictions.

(B) Positions supported, to the extent of employers’ contributions not exceeding twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) by any single educational agency, from a non-General Fund revenue source determined to be properly excludable from this subdivision by the Superintendent with the approval of the Director of Finance. Commencing in the 2002–03 fiscal year, only positions supported from a non-General Fund revenue source determined to be properly excludable as identified for a particular local educational agency or pursuant to a blanket waiver by the Superintendent and the Director of Finance, before the 2002–03 fiscal year, may be excluded pursuant to this paragraph.

(5) For accounting purposes, any reduction to county office of education revenue limits made by this subdivision may be reflected as an expenditure from appropriate sources of revenue as directed by the Superintendent.

(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.

(7) For the 2003–04 fiscal year and any fiscal year thereafter, the revenue limit reduction specified in Section 2558.46 may not be applied to the amount of the increase or decrease to the revenue limits of each county superintendent of schools computed pursuant to paragraph (3).

(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.

(5) The amount received pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 33607.5 of the Health and Safety Code that is considered property taxes pursuant to that section.

(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.

(g) 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.

(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.

(Amended by Stats. 2013, Ch. 357, Sec. 4. Effective September 26, 2013. Inoperative July 1, 2021. Repealed as of January 1, 2022, by its own provisions.)

2558.2.
  

(a) The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall use the revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance of the largest unified school district in the county to determine the revenue limits per unit of average daily attendance for county superintendents who provide education for homeless children pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 1982.

(b) The county superintendent shall certify to the Superintendent of Public Instruction that no school district in the county is also claiming average daily attendance for those pupils.

(c) State apportionments to county superintendents for the provision of education services to homeless children shall be restricted to expenditure on education services to homeless children and county administrative expenses related thereto.
