46205.
  

(a) For purposes of this article, instructional time for school districts conducting early-late instructional programs in kindergarten and grades 1 to 8, inclusive, shall be computed by adding the total amount of instructional time provided in each portion of the early-late instructional programs to the amount of instructional time offered when all pupils in the class are scheduled to attend. It is not the intent of the Legislature to disrupt or restrict early-late instructional programs for pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 8, inclusive.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, this section is not applicable to any class in any grade level for which class size reduction funding is received pursuant to the Class Size Reduction Program contained in Chapter 6.10 (commencing with Section 52120) of Part 28; provided, however, that this section may be applicable to any class in any grade level for which class size reduction funding is received pursuant to subparagraph (A) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 52122 if a school district operated under this section prior to July 1, 1996.

(a) The State Board of Education may waive the fiscal penalties set forth in this article for a school district or county office of education that fails to maintain the prescribed minimum length of time for the instructional school year, minimum number of instructional days for the school year, or both.

(b) For fiscal penalties incurred as a result of a shortfall on instructional time in the 2000–01 fiscal year or thereafter, a waiver may only be granted pursuant to subdivision (a) upon the condition that the school or schools in which the minutes, days, or both, were lost, maintain minutes and days of instruction equal to those lost and in addition to the amount otherwise prescribed in this article for twice the number of years that it failed to maintain the prescribed minimum length of time for the instructional school year, minimum number of instructional days for the school year following the year, or both, commencing not later than the school year following the year in which the waiver was granted and continuing for each succeeding school year until the condition is satisfied. Compliance with the condition shall be specifically verified in the report of the annual audit of the school district or county office of education for each year in which the additional time is to be maintained. If an audit report for a year in which the additional time is to be maintained does not verify that the time was provided, that finding shall be addressed as set forth in Section 41344.

(c) It is the intent of the Legislature that school districts and county offices of education make every effort to make up any instructional days and minutes lost during the school year in which the loss occurred, rather than seeking a waiver pursuant to the provisions of this section.

(d) The State Board of Education may grant a waiver pursuant to subdivision (a) without the condition provided in subdivision (b) to any school district that maintained a single session kindergarten class in the 1982–83 school year for more than the maximum number of 240 minutes permitted by state law and that, due to the school district’s growth and facilities limitations, is required to operate two sessions of kindergarten per day in the same classroom.

(b) For a school district that has met its local control funding formula target that reduces the amount of instructional time offered below the minimum amounts specified in subdivision (a), the Superintendent shall withhold from the school district’s local control funding formula apportionment for the average daily attendance of each affected grade level, the product of that apportionment multiplied by the percentage of the minimum offered minutes at that grade level that the school district failed to offer.

(c) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 school years, a school district that equals or exceeds its computed local control funding formula target may reduce the equivalent of up to five days of instruction or the equivalent number of instructional minutes without incurring the penalties set forth in this section.

A school operating as a multitrack year-round school shall be deemed to be in compliance with the 180-day requirement if it certifies to the Superintendent that it is a multitrack year-round school and maintains its school for a minimum of 163 schooldays.

(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 school years, a school district that equals or exceeds its computed local control funding formula target may reduce the equivalent of up to five days of instruction or the equivalent number of instructional minutes without incurring the penalties set forth in this section.

(c) For a school district that has met its local control funding formula target and that offers fewer than the number of instructional days required pursuant to this section, the Superintendent shall withhold from the school district’s local control funding formula grant apportionment pursuant to Section 42238.02, as implemented by Section 42238.03, for the average daily attendance of each affected grade level, the sum of 0.0056 multiplied by that apportionment for each day less than what was required pursuant to this section, for up to five days.
