8660.
  

(a) The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science is hereby created to establish a multidisciplinary academic development program in mathematics and science and to enable pupils with demonstrated academic excellence in mathematics and science to receive intensive educational enrichment in these subjects.

(b) The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science shall provide an opportunity for pupils who wish to study advanced mathematics or science or to pursue careers that require a high degree of skills and knowledge in mathematics or science.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 78, Sec. 5. Effective July 7, 1999.)

8661.
  

The Regents of the University of California are hereby requested to operate the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 78, Sec. 6. Effective July 7, 1999.)

8662.
  

(a) Pupils who have demonstrated academic excellence in mathematics and science and who meet one of the following criteria shall be eligible for admission to the summer school:

(1) The pupil graduated, or will graduate, from the 8th grade at the end of the school year immediately preceding the summer school session for which he or she is applying.

(2) The pupil is currently enrolled in any of grades 9 to 12, inclusive.

(b) A pupil’s participation in the summer school shall not be credited toward the pupil’s completion of the course of study prescribed for graduation from high school, unless the local school district that the pupil regularly attends tenders payment to the pupil, no later than the last day of the summer school session, for all application and other fees and expenses charged to the pupil by the summer school that would not be charged to a pupil enrolled in the public school system.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 78, Sec. 7. Effective July 7, 1999.)

8663.
  

(a) The Legislature finds and declares that the admission of out-of-state pupils to the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science can enhance the national and international standing of the pupils who attend the summer school.

(b) It is the intent of the Legislature that pursuant to the eligibility criteria set forth in Section 8662, the Regents of the University of California adopt policies that will enable pupils who are not California residents, including residents of other countries, to be admitted to the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science, not to exceed in any year 20 pupils or 5 percent of the total pupil population of the summer school, whichever is less. It is the further intent of the Legislature that admission of a nonresident under this subdivision may not result in the denial of admission under this chapter to a California resident who is eligible for that admission and satisfies applicable qualifications for admission.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 78, Sec. 8. Effective July 7, 1999.)

8664.
  

The Regents of the University of California are requested to perform all of the following duties:

(a) Provide for the operation and governance of the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science, including the appointment of an advisory committee to assist in planning and administering the summer school.

(b) Develop and implement a statewide application procedure in cooperation with appropriate state and local agencies, including, but not limited to, school districts, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges. The cost of the application process shall be at least partially offset by charging each applicant a fee not to exceed thirty dollars ($30). Applicants who are unable to pay the fee shall petition the University of California for a waiver, which shall be granted or denied pursuant to the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8669.

(c) Develop the curriculum of the summer school.

(a) The University of California shall be responsible for selection of the faculty of the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science.

(b) The faculty for the summer school shall be selected from distinguished kindergarten to 12th grade, inclusive, teachers and university faculty of mathematics and science, and may not be restricted to members of the current faculty of the University of California. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the faculty may not be subject to credentialing requirements or any other restrictions upon eligibility for employment generally applicable to public school instructors, except for the requirement of obtaining a certificate of clearance from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing pursuant to Sections 44332.5, 44339, 44340, and 44341.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 78, Sec. 12. Effective July 7, 1999.)

8669.
  

(a) It is the intent of the Legislature that at least 50 percent, but not more than 75 percent, of the actual costs of the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science for each fiscal year would be financed by state funds beginning in the 1999–2000 fiscal year.

It is the intent of the Legislature that the University of California award full or partial scholarships on the basis of need and that pupils who are unable to pay all or part of the fee may petition the University of California for a fee reduction or waiver to ensure that a qualified applicant is not denied admission solely because of his or her inability to pay part or all of the fee. Any public announcement regarding the summer school program should include notification that need-based scholarships are available and information regarding the procedure for applying for a scholarship award.

(c) For pupils who are not California residents, it is the intent of the Legislature that the Regents of the University of California set a tuition fee that is not less than the total actual costs to the summer school of services per pupil.

(d) The foundation authorized to be established pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 8664 may raise funds from the private sector that may be used by the summer school for general program operating costs, scholarships, program augmentation, public relations, recruitment activity, or special projects.
