arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) The board shall adopt regulations to develop a mechanism to rank approved applications for new construction funding.

This mechanism shall be used to determine the priority of approved applications when either of the following conditions are met:

(1) The total state funds necessary for funding all approved projects pursuant to this chapter exceed the total state funds in the fund for allocation pursuant to this chapter.

(2) The actual amount of unallocated proceeds of state bonds available on or after July 1, 2000, for new construction for the purposes of this chapter is at three hundred million dollars ($300,000,000).

(b) The ranking mechanism shall allocate priority points based upon the percentages of currently and projected unhoused pupils relative to the total population of the applicant district or attendance area and the total number of currently and projected unhoused pupils in an applicant district or attendance area.

(c) The board may award priority points based on other factors that in its judgment result in the most equitable distribution of resources among applicants. The additional factors may not constitute greater than a 10-percent weight in the overall priority ranking.

(d) This section shall apply only to projects funded with the proceeds of state bonds approved by the voters prior to January 1, 2002.

(Amended by Stats. 2002, Ch. 33, Sec. 12.)
