(b) The entitlement for the district for funds under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 for the preceding fiscal year for each unit of average daily attendance, exclusive of the average daily attendance of adults, as adults are defined by Section 52610, exceeds 150 percent of the statewide average entitlement.

For the purposes of this section, the average daily attendance of pupils in grades 7 and 8 attending a junior high school maintained by a high school district shall be credited to the high school district.

(a) The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall compute for each eligible district the actual amount of entitlement for the district for funds under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 for the preceding fiscal year, per unit of average daily attendance, exclusive of the average daily attendance of adults, as adults are defined in Section 52610, during the preceding fiscal year.

(b) He shall determine the lowest amount per unit of average daily attendance computed for any district in the state under subdivision (a). This amount shall be assigned the weighting value of 1.00. A weighting value for each other district shall be computed by dividing the amount per unit of average daily attendance computed under subdivision (a) by the lowest amount per unit of average daily attendance computed under this subdivision.

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

54606.
  

(a) The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall determine the current tax rate as defined by Section 17604 for each eligible district, by type of district.

(b) He shall determine the lowest current tax rate in effect for each type of eligible district. Such lowest current tax rates shall be assigned the weighting value of 1.00 respectively.

(c) A weighting value for each other district current tax rate shall be computed by dividing the current tax rate for each district determined under subdivision (a) by the lowest current tax rate for each type of district determined under subdivision (b).

(b) He shall compute the reciprocal value for each district achievement test score determined in subdivision (a).

(c) He shall determine the lowest reciprocal value for achievement test scores under subdivision (b). Such lowest reciprocal value shall be assigned the weighting value of 1.00.

The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall determine the composite weighting value for each district, by multiplying together the weighting values computed for each district pursuant to Sections 54605, 54606, and 54607.

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

54609.
  

The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall compute for each eligible district a weighted average daily attendance by multiplying the composite weighting value for the district determined in Section 54608 by the number of units per average daily attendance, exclusive of the average daily attendance of adults, as adults are defined by Section 52610, of the district.

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