(b) The average daily attendance for a program under this chapter shall be determined by dividing the total number of days of attendance in all full school months by a divisor of 135 for the first period of each fiscal year, by a divisor of 180 for the second period of each fiscal year, and by a divisor of 250 for the annual time of each fiscal year.

(f) The funds provided in this chapter shall be used only for the purpose of implementing the plans determined to be eligible for funding by the Superintendent of Public Instruction pursuant to Section 47756.

(i) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a pupil's eligibility to attend a program for transitioning high-risk youth shall cease on the second anniversary of his or her first day of attendance in the program.

(j) Effective July 1, 2000, and notwithstanding any other provision of this section, a county office of education or school district that operates a program under this chapter shall not be eligible to receive an apportionment pursuant to this section in excess of the product of the average number of pupils, per calendar day between July 1 and June 30, inclusive, enrolled to receive services in a program for transitioning high-risk youth, multiplied by twelve thousand dollars ($12,000).

(k) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Superintendent of Public Instruction may provide an apportionment to a county office of education or school district for startup costs, from the funds provided for the purposes of this chapter during the first year that a county office of education or a school district operates a program, if each of the following conditions is met:

(1) The county office of education or school district has submitted an application for startup funding to the Superintendent of Public Instruction by September 1, 1999, for the 1998-99 fiscal year, and for each fiscal year thereafter, not later than January 31st of the fiscal year for which startup funding is sought.

(2) The amount apportioned by the Superintendent of Public Instruction for startup funding pursuant to this subdivision may not exceed 15 percent of the county office of education's or school district's maximum permitted apportionment for the fiscal year startup funding is sought.

(3) Total funding for programs operated pursuant to this chapter, including funding for startup costs, may not exceed the recipient's maximum permitted apportionment for the fiscal year startup funding is sought.

(4) At the final apportionment for the fifth year of program operation, or at the final apportionment for the last year of program operation if the program operates for fewer than five years, the apportionment for a county office of education or school district operating a program under this chapter shall be reduced by the difference between the amount of startup funding apportioned pursuant to paragraph (2) and an amount equal to 15 percent of the maximum apportionment earned, for other than startup funding, in any one of the first five years of program operation.

(5) Approved startup costs may not include indirect costs, as defined in the California School Accounting Manual, or board and superintendent costs. If startup costs include personnel costs, those costs shall be documented by employee time records.
