The county superintendent of schools, with the approval of the county board of education, may enter into an agreement with a nonpublic institution of higher education, the governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or a nonprofit public organization to provide for the use by the institution, agency, organization, or school of audiovisual curriculum materials, including equipment and apparatus, under the control of the county superintendent of schools, in the same manner as public schools pursuant to Section 1250 except as otherwise provided in this section.

The agreement shall, among other matters, provide for the amount of the payment to be made by the nonpublic institution of higher education, the governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or a nonprofit public organization to the county superintendent of schools and the time payments shall be made. The payments made by the nonprofit institution of higher education, the governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or a nonprofit public organization that has entered into an agreement with the county superintendent of schools under this section shall be equal to the cost incurred by the county superintendent of schools in connection with the handling of, and the loss, destruction or damage to the audiovisual curriculum materials, including equipment and apparatus, by the nonpublic institution of higher education, the governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or a nonprofit organization.

The governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or nonprofit organization may withdraw from an agreement by giving notice six months prior to the beginning of the next fiscal year, and the agreement shall terminate on the last day of the then current fiscal year. The terms of an agreement may be changed by mutual consent at any time.

All funds received for the purposes of this section shall be deposited in the special equipment and apparatus fund of the county superintendent of schools authorized by Section 1250, and all expenditures made for the purposes of this section shall be made from that fund.

The audiovisual curriculum materials, including equipment and apparatus, shall be available for use by the nonpublic institution of higher education, the governing board of any nonpublic school, a public agency, or a nonprofit organization pursuant to this section only when such materials, including equipment and apparatus, are not needed by the public schools or the county superintendent of schools.

As used in this section, "nonpublic school" means a school that satisfies the requirements of Section 48222 and is exempt from taxation under Section 214 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
