(c) This section shall become inoperative on December 15, 2012, and, as of January 1, 2013, is repealed, only if the Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012 (Attorney General reference number 12–0009) is not approved by the voters at the November 6, 2012, statewide general election, or if the provisions of that act that modify personal income tax rates do not become operative due to a conflict with another initiative measure that is approved at the same election and receives a greater number of affirmative votes.

(a) Notwithstanding Section 14041.7, for the 2011–12 fiscal year only, up to one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) of the amount of the warrants for the principal apportionments for the month of June, that are instead to be drawn in July pursuant to Section 14041.5, may be drawn in June, subject to the approval of the Director of Finance, for a charter school or school district as follows:

(1) In order for a charter school to receive a payment in June pursuant to this section, the chartering authority, in consultation with the county superintendent of schools, shall certify to the Superintendent and the Director of Finance on or before April 1 that the deferral of warrants pursuant to Sections 14041.5 and 14041.6 will result in the charter school being unable to meet its financial obligations for June and shall provide the Superintendent an estimate of the amount of additional funds necessary for the charter school to meet its financial obligations for the month of June.

(2) In order for a school district to receive a payment in June pursuant to this section, the county superintendent of schools shall certify to the Superintendent and to the Director of Finance on or before April 1 that the deferral of warrants pursuant to Sections 14041.5 and 14041.6 will result in the school district being unable to meet its financial obligations for June and shall provide the Superintendent an estimate of the amount of additional funds necessary for the school district to meet its financial obligations for the month of June.

(3) The criteria, as applicable, set forth in statute and regulations to qualify a school district for an emergency apportionment shall be used to make the certification specified in paragraph (2).

(4) A charter school or school district may receive, pursuant to this section, no more than the amount of additional funds necessary for the charter school or school district to meet its financial obligations for the month of June, as reported to the Superintendent pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2).

(b) If the total amount requested by charter schools and school districts pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a) exceeds one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000), the Controller, Treasurer, and Director of Finance may authorize additional payments to meet these requests, but total payments to charter schools and school districts pursuant to this section shall not exceed three hundred million dollars ($300,000,000). No later than May 1, the Controller, Treasurer, and Director of Finance shall determine whether sufficient cash is available to make payments in excess of one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000). In making the determination that cash is sufficient to make additional payments, in whole or in part, the Controller, Treasurer, and Director of Finance shall consider costs for state government, the scope of any identified cash shortage, timing, achievability, legislative direction, and the impact and hardship imposed on potentially affected programs, entities, and related public services. The Department of Finance shall notify the Joint Legislative Budget Committee within 10 days of this determination and identify the total amount of requests that will be paid.

(c) If the total amount of cash made available pursuant to subdivision (b) is less than the amount requested pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a), payments to charter schools and school districts shall be prioritized according to the date on which notification was provided to the Superintendent and the Department of Finance.

(d) Payments pursuant to this section shall be made no later than June 20.

(e) Except as provided in subdivisions (c) and (e) of Section 41202, for purposes of making the computations required by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, the warrants drawn pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be deemed to be “General Fund revenues appropriated for school districts,” as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 41202, for the fiscal year in which the warrants are drawn and included within the “total allocations to school districts and community college districts from General Fund proceeds of taxes appropriated pursuant to Article XIII B,” as defined in subdivision (e) of Section 41202, for the fiscal year in which the warrants are drawn.

(a) If the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the chancellor does not certify to the Controller, on or before the 20th day of February, the amounts apportioned by him as the first principal apportionment, the Controller shall draw warrants on the State Treasury in favor of the county treasurer of each county in the month of February, and in each month thereafter until the month following his receipt of such certification, for amounts equal to the warrants drawn for January.

(b) In the month following the receipt of the certification of the amounts apportioned by the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges as the first principal apportionment, the Controller shall draw warrants on the State Treasury in favor of the county treasurer of each county in an amount equal to the difference between the amount of the warrants which would have been drawn pursuant to Section 14041 had the certification been received by the Controller not later than February 20th and the amount of the warrants drawn pursuant to subdivision (a) of this section.

(c) Warrants drawn under this section shall be drawn on the State School Fund and are not subject to the provisions of Government Code Section 925.6.

All moneys received by the treasurer of any county from the apportionments of the State School Fund shall be immediately credited by the treasurer to the county school service fund, the county school tuition fund, and the general funds of the several school districts of the county exactly as apportioned by the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

14044.
  

(a) Upon determining that any semiannual report to the State Department of Education, as required under Section 628.2 of the Penal Code, has not been submitted, or that a submitted report contains intentionally misleading data, the Superintendent of Public Instruction may withhold an amount from the next state funding apportionment to which the school district or, as appropriate, the county office of education, would otherwise be entitled. The amount so withheld shall not exceed one-half of the annual salary of the superintendent of that district or of that county superintendent of schools, respectively.

(b) Any funds withheld pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be held in trust by the Superintendent of Public Instruction until he or she determines that the data required under Section 628.2 of the Penal Code has been submitted, in complete and accurate form, by the appropriate school district or county office of education whereupon those funds shall be released to the appropriate county treasury to the credit of that district or county office of education.
