For the purpose of this subdivision, except as otherwise provided, the State Board of Education shall establish the standards and criteria for defining a day qualifying for the 175-day minimum requirement.

41422.
  

(a) A school district, county office of education, or charter school that is prevented from maintaining its schools during a fiscal year for at least 175 days or is required to operate sessions of shorter length than otherwise prescribed by law because of fire, flood, earthquake, or epidemic, or because of any order of any military officer of the United States or of the state to meet an emergency created by war, or of any civil officer of the United States, of the state, or of any county, city and county, or city authorized to issue that order to meet an emergency created by war, or because of other extraordinary conditions, or because of inability to secure or hold a teacher, or because of the illness of the teacher, which fact shall be shown to the satisfaction of the Superintendent by the affidavits of the members of the governing board of the school district, the governing board of the county office of education, or the governing board or body of the charter school and of the county superintendent of schools, shall receive the same apportionment from the State School Fund as it would have received had it not been so prevented from maintaining school for at least 175 full-length days.

(b) This section shall also apply to school districts, county offices of education, or charter schools that, in the absence of one or more of the conditions prescribed by this section, would have qualified for funds pursuant to Sections 46200 to 46208, inclusive, or Section 47612.5, as applicable.

(Amended by Stats. 2016, Ch. 86, Sec. 59. Effective January 1, 2017.)

41423.
  

No money shall be apportioned to a district for the excess cost of educating pupils in a 24-hour elementary school of the district unless such school has met the requirements of the Superintendent of Public Instruction based upon educational standards and standards established by state agencies authorized by law to inspect or supervise child-caring institutions.

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

41450.
  

The Legislature finds that each year one or more school districts or county offices of education experience severe financial difficulty. In some cases these school districts or county offices of education request emergency apportionments from the state under the provisions of Article 2 (commencing with Section 41320). In order to reduce the need for these apportionments, it is the intent of the Legislature that the Superintendent of Public Instruction be authorized to provide assistance and guidance to school districts and county offices of education that are experiencing severe financial difficulty. That assistance and guidance shall be limited to the fiscal concerns addressed by the standards and criteria adopted pursuant to Section 33127.

(Added by Stats. 1988, Ch. 1462, Sec. 1.15.)

41455.
  

After receiving the advice of the Controller, the Superintendent of Public Instruction is authorized pursuant to Section 41450 to contract with consultants possessing financial and administrative expertise, including county offices of education, to examine the financial problems of county offices of education and school districts that are identified as being in severe financial difficulty. The examination shall result in a written report to the Superintendent of Public Instruction regarding financial problems identified and recommendations on ways to alleviate them, which report shall be presented at a public meeting of the governing board of each of the school districts and county offices of education.

(Added by Stats. 1988, Ch. 1462, Sec. 1.16.)
