(a) (1) Commencing in the 2006-07 fiscal year, and in each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent shall, after making adjustments pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 52616.17, and based on data reported to the department by local educational agencies on or before July 15 of each fiscal year, adjust the allocation of apportionments for adult education average daily attendance as follows:

(A) For a school district operating an adult education program with fewer than 100 units of authorized adult education average daily attendance, as determined pursuant to Section 52616.17, in the two prior fiscal years, and which served or exceeded its adult education average daily attendance authorized limit in the two prior fiscal years, the Superintendent shall grant to the school district up to 30 additional units of authorized adult education average daily attendance made available after he or she performs the adjustments pursuant to subparagraph (C) upon the request of the district. A school district that receives additional units may not exceed 100 total units. If available units are insufficient to provide for this adjustment, the school district shall receive a prorated amount, relative to the units of authorized adult education average daily attendance of the school district.

(B) For a school district operating an adult education program with 100 or more units of authorized adult education average daily attendance, as determined pursuant to Section 52616.17, in the two prior fiscal years, and which served or exceeded its units of authorized adult education average daily attendance for the school district in the two prior fiscal years, the school district shall receive a prorated amount of units available, as specified in paragraph (2), after the Superintendent performs the adjustment required by subparagraphs (A) and (C), relative to the adult education average daily attendance authorized limit of the school district.

(C) For a school district operating an adult education program that failed to serve its units of authorized adult education average daily attendance for the school district in the two prior fiscal years, the units of authorized adult education average daily attendance of the school district shall be reduced by an amount equal to one-half of the lowest level of unearned adult education average daily attendance in either of the two prior fiscal years. The Superintendent shall notify a school district that its units of authorized adult education average daily attendance for the school district are reduced pursuant to this paragraph.

(2) The Superintendent may not perform adjustments pursuant to paragraph (1) that result in a total statewide apportionment of units of authorized adult education average daily attendance that exceeds the amount funded in the annual Budget Act.

(3) (A) A school district that receives additional units of authorized adult education average daily attendance pursuant to paragraph (1) shall provide a number of career technical education courses that is equal to the percentage of average daily attendance of adults attending those courses in the prior three fiscal years without regard to units of authorized adult education average daily attendance added pursuant to paragraph (1).

(B) A school district shall use funds derived from an adjustment performed pursuant to paragraph (1) for the purpose of providing access to, or direct instruction in, career technical education courses.
