17079.
  

(a) For purposes of this article, an eligible school is a school for which the schoolsite pupil population density is equal to or greater than 175 percent of the schoolsite pupil population density recommended by the Superintendent as of January 1, 2006, adjusted by the following factors:

(1) The density calculation shall be reduced to take into account the additional pupil capacity created by multistory construction.

(2) The schoolsite pupil population density shall be reduced to take into account approved new construction projects, including projects approved pursuant to Article 11 (commencing with Section 17078.10).

(b) The board shall adopt regulations to determine the adjustments set forth in paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision (a).

(Added by Stats. 2006, Ch. 35, Sec. 12. Effective May 20, 2006. Operative after November 7, 2006, pursuant to Sec. 25 of Ch. 35 and adoption of Prop. 1D.)

(b) The board shall apportion an overcrowding relief grant to districts on behalf of each eligible pupil equal to the appropriate per-unhoused-pupil grant amount pursuant to Section 17072.10. The number of overcrowding relief grants apportioned shall be subject to the following limitations:

(1) The number of grants apportioned on behalf of an eligible school shall not exceed the number of pupils whose removal from the pupil density calculation would reduce the density of the eligible schoolsite to 150 percent of the schoolsite pupil population density recommended by the Superintendent as of January 1, 2006.

(2) A district shall not receive more grants than the number of pupils housed in portable classrooms that were included in the initial new construction eligibility determination of the district pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 17071.75).

(Added by Stats. 2006, Ch. 35, Sec. 12. Effective May 20, 2006. Operative after November 7, 2006, pursuant to Sec. 25 of Ch. 35 and adoption of Prop. 1D.)

17079.20.
  

(a) The board shall require that applications for funding pursuant to this article be used for an equivalent number of permanent new school construction classrooms to replace the portable classrooms upon which the determination of the number of eligible pupils is based. The board shall also require the application to describe how the project will relieve overcrowding at the eligible school.

(b) The board shall create a list of projects eligible for funding and shall approve applications semiannually on a schedule determined by the board.

(c) The board shall require that applicant school districts comply with all of the same conditions otherwise required for new construction funding pursuant to this chapter with the exception of subdivision (b) of Section 17071.75.

(d) The board shall not apportion funds for a project pursuant to this article any portion of which involves the construction, acquisition, or transportation of portable classrooms for any school in the school district.

(e) In the event the funding available to the board for purposes of this article is less than the amount necessary to fund all eligible applications, the board shall prioritize and fund the projects on the basis of the pupil density of the eligible schools.

(Added by Stats. 2006, Ch. 35, Sec. 12. Effective May 20, 2006. Operative after November 7, 2006, pursuant to Sec. 25 of Ch. 35 and adoption of Prop. 1D.)

17079.30.
  

(a) The board shall require both of the following as conditions for receiving funding pursuant to this article:

(1) Within six months after the date of initial occupancy of the permanent school facilities constructed pursuant to this article, the school district shall remove from the eligible school, and remove from service as classrooms in the district, the portable classrooms used for determining the number of eligible pupils.

(2) The new school construction funding provided pursuant to this article shall result in a reduction in the total number of portable classrooms in the school district.

(b) This section does not preclude the school district from using the portable classrooms removed from eligible schools for child care or preschool programs, if those portable classrooms are not located at an eligible school.

(c) This section does not apply to eligible schools operating on double session schedules in an elementary school district in a county of the second class, as set forth in Section 28023 of the Government Code.
