Elementary School Intensive Reading Program
(a) Except as provided in subdivision (b), intensive reading instruction provided pursuant to this article shall be offered four hours per day for six continuous weeks during the summer or when school is not regularly in session.
(b) Due to facilities constraints or for other educational reasons, a school district may offer intensive reading instruction before school, after school, on Saturdays, or during intersession, or in a combination of summer school, before school, after school, Saturday, or intersession instruction. Services may be provided to pupils during the regular instructional day if the instruction is delivered by a certificated employee, provided that the employee is not the pupil's regular classroom teacher, and does not result in the pupil being removed from regular classroom instruction. Instruction provided pursuant to this section shall fulfill the requirements of subdivision (a) of Section 44830 and of Section 44831. Other service providers should have appropriate training in the teaching of reading.
(c) Notwithstanding Section 49550 or any other provision of law, a school district that operates a program pursuant to this article is not required to provide a meal or snack to pupils participating in the program.
