For fiscal year 2011-12, from the attendance records, select a representative sample of pupils enrolled in grades 7 through 12, inclusive, for whom Average Daily Attendance generated through regular classroom or independent study was claimed, and perform the following procedures:

(a) As provided in Health and Safety Code Section 120335.1(a), for each pupil in the sample who was under age 18 who was enrolled in the county office of education or school district in the prior year, and whose first day of attendance occurred on or before the sixth Friday following the first day on which classes were offered at the school in which the pupil was enrolled, verify that evidence was on file by the 30th calendar day after the pupil's first day of attendance in school year 2011-12 of

(1) a pertussis booster vaccine given on or after the pupil's 7th birthday, or

(2) a pertussis booster immunization exemption statement.

(A) If the exemption from the new pertussis booster requirement was a temporary medical exemption that terminated any time during the 2011-12 school year, verify that evidence is on file that the pupil obtained the required pertussis booster vaccine when the temporary exemption terminated, or filed a permanent medical or personal beliefs exemption by that date.

(B) If the exemption is based on personal beliefs, the statement must be specific to the new pertussis booster immunization requirement as specified by Title 17, Section 6051.

(b) For each pupil in the sample who was under age 18 who transferred into the county office of education or school district, and whose immunization record was not received at the time of entry to the new school, verify that evidence was on file, as provided in Title 17, Section 6070(d), by the 30th school day after the pupil's first day of attendance in school year 2011-12 of compliance with the requirements set forth in (1) or (2) of subparagraph (a) of this section.

(c) If, pursuant to the foregoing audit procedures, any pupils are found who did not have evidence of a pertussis booster vaccine or exemption, verify that attendance was not claimed for pupils continuing in the same county office of education or school district on or after the pupil's 31st calendar day of school, or on or after a transfer pupil's 31st school day. Once evidence is provided of the pertussis vaccination or a pertussis booster immunization exemption statement is received, the pupil is no longer excluded from school.

(d) If any inappropriately reported units of Average Daily Attendance are identified through the foregoing audit procedures, recalculate, consistent with the provisions of Education Code Section 46303, the correct number of units of Average Daily Attendance. Include a statement in the Findings and Recommendations section of the audit report of the number of units of Average Daily Attendance that were inappropriately reported for apportionment and an estimate of their dollar value.
