(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a school district may sell or lease Internet appliances or personal computers to parents of pupils within the school district, for the purpose of providing access to the school district’s educational computer network, at a standard price, not to exceed the cost incurred by the school district in purchasing the Internet appliance or personal computer. A school district that elects to sell or lease Internet appliances or personal computers, as authorized by this section, shall provide access to the school district’s educational network for those families that cannot afford access to the school district’s educational network. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in conducting a sale or lease pursuant to this section a school district shall not be required to call for bids or to sell or lease Internet appliances or personal computers to the highest bidder.

(b) The Legislature finds and declares that the Internet appliances or personal computers that are sold or leased pursuant to this section are not an essential part of the school district’s educational program, but are supplemental to that program.
