Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 16319, apportionments under this article from the proceeds of bonds remaining from the authorization provided in the State School Building Aid Bond Law of 1966 may be made for the purpose of (1) reconstructing or replacing existing substandard school buildings or high school dormitories that present a potential threat to the safety of schoolchildren and which were not previously constructed or reconstructed in accordance with the requirements of Article 3 (commencing with Section 17280) of Chapter 2 of Part 10.5 or which if previously reconstructed to comply with the provisions of Article 3 no longer meet the standards of structural safety prescribed under the authority of Article 3 in effect on April 10, 1933, or (2) reconstructing or replacing existing structures utilized by a school district as school buildings originally designed to house the United States Cavalry and used as World War II prisoner-of-war camp structures or an existing structure utilized by a school district as a school building which was originally designed as a mess facility for the United States Army Air Corps without regard to conditional or provisional structural approvals received by the district with respect to the buildings prior to the enactment of Chapter 500 of the Statutes of 1972.
Apportionments for the reconstruction or replacement of a dormitory shall only be made when the use and occupancy of the dormitory will be by resident pupils of the district who are in attendance at the high school of the district and when in the judgment of the board the pupils cannot be reasonably expected to travel by vehicle to the school on a daily basis.
