arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Apportionments and allowances to a school district from Section A of the State School Fund in a fiscal year may not be less than the product of one hundred twenty dollars ($120) multiplied by the average daily attendance of the district in the preceding fiscal year, or two thousand four hundred dollars ($2,400), whichever amount is the greater.

(b) State funds apportioned to each school district for categorical education programs, or other state funds apportioned to each school district from the State School Fund, shall be applied to meet the requirement of Section 6 of Article IX of the California Constitution to provide a minimum of one hundred twenty dollars ($120) of state aid per pupil or two thousand four hundred dollars ($2,400) per school district.

(c) Notwithstanding any other law, the Superintendent of Public Instruction may not increase the revenue limit apportionment of any school district to provide basic state aid pursuant to Section 6 of Article IX of the California Constitution or any other law, unless that school district has not received the greater amount of one hundred twenty dollars ($120) per pupil or two thousand four hundred dollars ($2,400) from all state funds, including funds for categorical education programs. If a school district receives less than the amount specified in this subdivision, the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall allocate the difference between the amount of state funds received and the constitutional minimum of the greater amount of one hundred twenty dollars ($120) per pupil or two thousand four hundred dollars ($2,400) per school district.
