(1) The charter school's pupils were engaged in educational activities required of those pupils, and the pupils were under the immediate supervision and control of an employee of the charter school who possessed a valid teaching certification in accordance with the provisions of subdivision (l) of Education Code Section 47605.

(2) At least 80 percent of the instructional time offered at the charter school was at the schoolsite. The requirement to be ?at the schoolsite? is satisfied if either of the conditions set forth in subdivision (b) of Section 11963 is met.

(3) The charter school's schoolsite was a facility that was used principally for classroom instruction as that term is defined in subdivision (b)(1) of Section 11963.

(4) The charter school required its pupils to be in attendance at the schoolsite at least 80 percent of the minimum instructional time required pursuant to the provisions of subdivision (a)(1) of Education Code Section 47612.5, reduced pursuant to the provisions of Education Code sections 46201.2, and 46201.3, as set forth below:

(b) If any Average Daily Attendance reported to the California Department of Education as classroom-based instruction was not generated in compliance with all of the preceding conditions, it is not eligible for apportionments unless it was generated in full compliance with the requirements set forth in Section 19852. If it was not generated in full compliance with the requirements set forth in Section 19852, include a statement in the Findings and Recommendations section of the audit report of the number of units of Average Daily Attendance that were inappropriately reported for apportionment and an estimate of their dollar value.
