(a) The governing board of the school district shall, as a condition precedent to the admission of any person, under Section 48051, require the parent or guardian of such person to pay to the school district an amount not more than sufficient to reimburse the school district for the total cost of educating the person, including the total of the amounts expended per pupil for the current expenses of education, the use of buildings and equipment, the repayment of local bonds and interest payments and state building loan funds, capital outlay, and transportation to and from school. The per pupil cost attributable to capital outlay shall be on the basis of an average expenditure for the preceding five years. The cost of transportation shall not exceed ten dollars ($10) per month. Tuition payments shall be made in advance for each month or semester during the period of attendance.
