(2) It is not possible for the school to maintain a multitrack schedule containing the same number of instructional days as are provided in schools of the district utilizing the traditional school calendar given the facilities, program, class sizes, and projected number of pupils enrolled at the schoolsite.
(b) A certificated employee working under a program described in this section, except one serving under an administrative or supervisorial credential who is assigned full time to a school in a position requiring qualifications for certification, shall work the same number of days and shall increase the number of minutes worked daily on a uniform basis.
(c) A program conducted pursuant to this section is eligible for apportionment from the State School Fund.
