arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) The Chancellor's Office shall adjust the actual units of full-time equivalent student of a district operating under a plan approved in accordance with this article to reflect the conduct of staff, student, and instructional improvement activities in lieu of scheduled instruction during flexible time. The adjusted units of full-time equivalent student shall be computed by multiplying the actual units of full-time equivalent student in the academic year, exclusive of any intersessions, computed pursuant to section 58003.1, by a factor which does not change the full-time equivalent student which would have otherwise been generated if the time for the improvement activities had not been permitted and scheduled instruction had instead taken place.

(b) For courses other than those described in subdivision (b) of section 58003.1, the multiplier factor shall equal the sum of the following:

(1) 1.0; and

(2) the total of all the actual hours of flexible time of all instructors pursuant to section 55720 in the fiscal year, divided by the total of all the actual hours of classroom instruction of all instructors in the academic year, exclusive of any intersessions.

(c) For those courses described in subdivision (b) of section 58003.1, this multiplier factor shall equal the term length multiplier applicable to the district.

(d) The Chancellor shall also withhold the appropriate amount of state aid whenever there is a final audit finding that an instructor did not spend at least as much time performing staff, student, and instructional improvement activities as the amount of time he or she was released from classroom instruction.
