arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) For purposes of certifying pupil enrollment pursuant to Education Code sections 52084 and 52086 and enabling the apportionment of funds pursuant to Education Code section 52086, each participating school district shall submit to the California Department of Education an annual MH-CSR9-A Request for Application (Rev.01/2005) with an estimate of participant enrollment numbers for the Grade 9 CSR program and, at the end of the school year, the J-9MH-A Report of Enrollment (Rev. 01/2005) with actual participant numbers. Both forms are incorporated by reference into this section. The forms are available at the following website address: http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/mhcsr9thgrade.asp.

(b) For purposes of completing the MH-CSR9-A Request for Application (Rev. 01/2005) and the J-9MH-A Report of Enrollment (Rev. 01/2005), the following definitions shall apply:

(1) "Active Monthly Enrollment" is the average enrollment count for all instructional days of the month.

(2) "Student to Teacher Ratio" means the school-wide average number of students per certificated teacher for all participating Grade 9 CSR classes, regardless of the subject. Each participating school must have a student to certificated teacher ratio no greater than 20 to 1, with no more than 22 pupils in any participating class pursuant to Education Code section 52084(c). Students who are recognized as being in grades 10, 11, or 12, but who are nonetheless enrolled in participating classes are to be included in the total number. The result is rounded to 2 decimal places. A result of 20.49 or less will be rounded down to 20, and a result of 20.50 or greater will be rounded up to 21. Any school with a ratio of 20.50 or greater is not eligible to receive funding.

(c) Both the MH-CSR9-A Request for Application (Rev. 01/2005) and the J-9MH-A Report of Enrollment (Rev. 01/2005) shall be completed in full and submitted to the California Department of Education.

(1) For grade 9 class size reduction the forms shall include:

(A) The designated course or courses, which must be intended primarily for students recognized as being in grade 9.

(B) The student to teacher ratio as defined in section 15141(b)(2) above.

(2) For grades 10, 11, and 12, inclusive, class size reduction, pursuant to Education Code section 52084(g), the forms shall include:

(A) The district-wide designated grade level and the designated course.

(B) The number of classes at each school and the total number of classes in the participating school district for the designated course.

(C) The number of pupils enrolled in classes at each school and the total number of pupils enrolled in all classes in the participating school district for the designated course.

(d) In apportioning funds pursuant to Education Code section 52086, school district funding is calculated by multiplying the FYEE by the per pupil rate at each participating school. Maximum funding for one course may not exceed the total 9th grade student enrollment as reported in the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) multiplied by the per pupil rate or, for two courses, two times the 9th grade student enrollment as reported in CBEDS multiplied by the per pupil rate. While a school may receive funding for non-ninth graders in grade 9 CSR classes, at least 50 percent of those enrolled in participating classes must be ninth graders.
