From the funds appropriated by the Legislature for the purposes of this chapter, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, with the approval of the State Board of Education, shall administer this chapter and make apportionments to school districts to meet the total approved expense of the school districts incurred in establishing education programs for pupils who qualify economically and educationally in preschool, kindergarten, or any of grades 1 through 12, inclusive. Funds provided pursuant to this chapter in any fiscal year but not expended by school district in that fiscal year may be expended in subsequent fiscal years.
Nothing in this chapter shall in any way preclude the use of federal funds for educationally disadvantaged youths. Districts which receive funds pursuant to this chapter shall not reduce existing district resources which have been utilized for programs to meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged students.
