(a) Upon determining that any semiannual report to the State Department of Education, as required under Section 628.2 of the Penal Code, has not been submitted, or that a submitted report contains intentionally misleading data, the Superintendent of Public Instruction may withhold an amount from the next state funding apportionment to which the school district or, as appropriate, the county office of education, would otherwise be entitled. The amount so withheld shall not exceed one-half of the annual salary of the superintendent of that district or of that county superintendent of schools, respectively.
(b) Any funds withheld pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be held in trust by the Superintendent of Public Instruction until he or she determines that the data required under Section 628.2 of the Penal Code has been submitted, in complete and accurate form, by the appropriate school district or county office of education whereupon those funds shall be released to the appropriate county treasury to the credit of that district or county office of education.
