The attendance report for the school district of choice may include an identification of the school district of residence.

(b) Notwithstanding any other law, state aid for categorical education programs for pupils admitted under this article shall be apportioned to the school district of choice.

(c) (1) For a school district of choice that is a basic aid school district, the apportionment of state funds for average daily attendance credited pursuant to this section shall be 25 percent of the school district local control funding formula base grant computed pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02, as implemented by Section 42238.03, that would have been apportioned to the school district of residence.

(2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), until the Superintendent determines that the school district of residence is funded pursuant to Section 42238.02, the Superintendent shall apportion, for average daily attendance pursuant to this article, the lesser of the amount calculated pursuant to paragraph (1) or 25 percent of the sum of the entitlements for the school district of residence for the specified fiscal year as computed pursuant to paragraphs (1) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (a), and paragraph (3) of subdivision (b), of Section 42238.03, divided by the average daily attendance pursuant to this article for that fiscal year and then multiplied by the ratio of local control funding formula base grant funding computed pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02 to the local control funding formula amount for the fiscal year computed pursuant to Section 42238.02.
