County Superintendent authority to establish and maintain programs and centers
The county superintendent of schools in each county, with the approval of the county board of education and the Superintendent of Public Instruction, shall have the authority to establish and maintain child development programs and centers in the same manner and to the same extent as governing boards of school or community college districts, except that nothing in this section shall be construed as vesting in the county superintendents of schools any authority to alone effect the levy and collection of any county, school, or other local taxes for the support of any child development programs and centers.
The establishment and maintenance of any child development program and center by the county superintendent of schools shall be undertaken, subject to the prior approval of both the county board of education and the Superintendent of Public Instruction, upon the application of one or more school districts under his or her jurisdiction.
