(3) Identify all students meeting the criteria established in subdivision (2) who reside in attendance areas of schools eligible for SCE funds according to the criterion established in subdivision (1).

(7) Allocate the portion of the district's SCE funds which must be spent in Title I eligible areas as determined in subdivision (6) to all Title I eligible schools which are also eligible to receive SCE funds such that the same percentage of students eligible to participate in SCE programs is served in each eligible school; e.g., if there are sufficient funds to serve 60 percent of the eligible students in all Title I eligible schools, then SCE funds would be allocated to serve 60 percent of the eligible students in each eligible Title I school.

(8) Allocate the portion of the district's SCE funds which may be spent in non-Title I eligible areas (the amount remaining after subtracting SCE funds allocated to Title I schools as determined in subdivision (6) to all non-Title I eligible schools which are eligible to receive SCE funds such that the same percentage of students eligible to participate in SCE programs are served in each eligible school; e.g., if there are sufficient funds to serve 60 percent of the eligible students in all non-Title I eligible schools, then SCE funds would be allocated to serve 60 percent of the eligible students in each eligible non-Title I school.

(9) Allocate Title I funds to Title I eligible schools and students in accordance with Title I law and regulations.

(10) If Title I eligible schools are skipped for purposes of receiving Title I funds because their programs for educationally disadvantaged students are funded by SCE, these Title I eligible schools must receive the same nature and scope of service as those which would have otherwise been provided under Title I.
