(1) The charter school continues to serve the same general population.

(2) The charter school implements the intended goals of the court order.

(3) The court order remains in effect.

41544.
  

(a) For a basic aid school district that was entitled to reimbursement pursuant to former Section 42247.4, as that section read on January 1, 2001, and that received an apportionment pursuant to subdivision (h) of former Section 42247.4, as that section read on January 1, 2001, because a court order directs pupils to transfer to that school district as part of the court-ordered voluntary pupil transfer program, the Superintendent, from the 2001–02 fiscal year to the 2012–13 fiscal year, inclusive, shall calculate an apportionment of state funds for that basic aid school district that provides 70 percent of the school district revenue limit calculated pursuant to former Section 42238, as that section read on January 1, 2013, that would have been apportioned to the school district from which the pupils were transferred for the average daily attendance of any pupils credited under that court order who did not attend the basic aid school district before the 1995–96 fiscal year.

(b) (1) For a basic aid school district that was entitled to reimbursement pursuant to former Section 42247.4, as that section read on January 1, 2001, and that received an apportionment pursuant to subdivision (h) of former Section 42247.4, as that section read on January 1, 2001, because a court order directs pupils to transfer to that school district as part of the court-ordered voluntary pupil transfer program, the Superintendent, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, shall calculate an apportionment of state funds for that basic aid school district that provides 70 percent of the school district local control funding formula base grant calculated pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02, as implemented by Section 42238.03, that would have been apportioned to the school district from which the pupils were transferred for the average daily attendance of any pupils credited under that court order who did not attend the basic aid school district before the 1995–96 fiscal year.

(2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), until the Superintendent determines that the school district from which the pupil or pupils were transferred is funded pursuant to Section 42238.02 in the prior fiscal year, the Superintendent shall apportion, for average daily attendance credited pursuant to paragraph (1), the lesser of the amount calculated pursuant to paragraph (1) or 70 percent of the sum of the entitlements for the school district from which the pupil or pupils were transferred for the specified fiscal year as computed pursuant to paragraphs (1) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (a), and paragraph (3) of subdivision (b), of Section 42238.03, divided by the average daily attendance of that school district for that fiscal year and then multiplied by the ratio of local control funding formula base grant funding computed pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02 to the local control funding formula amount for that fiscal year computed pursuant to Section 42238.02.

(3) If the entitlements for the school district from which the pupil or pupils were transferred computed pursuant to paragraphs (1) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (a), and paragraph (3) of subdivision (b), of Section 42238.03, include funding calculated pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 42280) of Chapter 7 for a fiscal year, paragraph (2) shall not apply and the apportionment of state funds for the average daily attendance credited pursuant to this section for that fiscal year shall be calculated pursuant to paragraph (1).

(c) For purposes of subdivision (b), “basic aid school district” means a school district that does not receive from the state, for any fiscal year in which this section is applied, an apportionment of state funds pursuant to subdivision (o) of Section 42238.02.

(Amended by Stats. 2015, Ch. 19, Sec. 42. Effective June 24, 2015.)
