41204.
  

(a) It is the intent of the Legislature, pursuant to “The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act,” that school districts, as defined in Section 41302.5, and community college districts, as constituted during 1986–87 fiscal year, annually receive a basic minimum portion of the revenues that were deposited to the General Fund in that year.

(b) In recognition of this intent, it is further the intent of the Legislature that both houses and the Governor be guided by the following:

(1) If the revenues of a tax that were deposited in the General Fund in the 1986–87 fiscal year are redirected to any local governmental entity, then the percentages of General Fund revenues required to be applied by the state for the support of school districts, community college districts, and state agencies providing direct elementary and secondary level instructional services shall be recalculated as if those revenues were not deposited in the General Fund in the 1986–87 fiscal year.

(2) If the allocated local proceeds of taxes, as defined by subdivisions (g) and (h) of Section 41202, received by a school district or community college district during the 1986–87 fiscal year, are redirected to other entities or statutorily or constitutionally reduced or eliminated, the additional General Fund support provided to replace the allocated local proceeds of taxes may not be counted as General Fund revenues required to be applied for the support of school districts, community college districts, and state agencies providing direct elementary and secondary level instructional services pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, unless the percentage of General Fund revenues appropriated to school districts, community college districts, and state agencies providing direct elementary and secondary level instructional services in the 1986–87 fiscal year is adjusted to reflect the amount of General Fund support that would have been provided in the 1986–87 fiscal year had the allocated local proceeds of taxes been correspondingly reduced.

(c) No appropriation of funding to be allocated to school districts, as defined in Section 41302.5, or community college districts, for the support of any program or activity of either or both of those entities, that is not an ordinary or historical responsibility of one or both of those entities shall be credited toward the state’s funding obligation under subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

(Added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 82, Sec. 8. Effective June 30, 1989. See same-numbered section in the prevailing Chapter 2 added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 83.)

41206.
  

(a) For purposes of subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, all determinations of percentages, amounts, revenues, appropriations, allocations, proceeds of taxes, increases in cost of living, or enrollments shall be based upon the best available estimate until actual data becomes available, and then upon actual data when it is available.

(b) Within nine months following the end of any fiscal year, the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Director of Finance shall recalculate, as necessary, and jointly certify all actual data pertaining to school districts, as defined, for the prior fiscal year. Any amount of funding required by subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution to be appropriated to school districts for that year, less any amounts already appropriated for that year, shall be set aside by the Controller and, if not appropriated to school districts by the Legislature within 90 days, shall be allocated to school districts by the Controller in proportion to the enrollment in school districts as determined for purposes of Section 8.5 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

(c) Within nine months following the end of any fiscal year, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Director of Finance shall recalculate, as necessary, and jointly certify all actual data pertaining to community college districts, as defined, for the prior fiscal year. Any amount of funding required by subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution to be appropriated to community college districts for that year, less any amounts already appropriated for that year, shall be set aside by the Controller and, if not appropriated to community college districts by the Legislature within 90 days, shall be allocated to community college districts by the Controller in proportion to the enrollment in community college districts as determined for purposes of Section 8.5 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

(Added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 82, Sec. 8. Effective June 30, 1989. See same-numbered section in the prevailing Chapter 2 added by Stats. 1989, Ch. 83.)

41207.
