The governing board of each school district which elects to participate in the Education Improvement Incentive Program shall certify to the Superintendent of Public Instruction the number of pupils enrolled in the district which have been exempted from the testing program conducted pursuant to Section 60603. The superintendent shall compare this number with the unduplicated count of individuals with exceptional needs reported by age and disabling conditions by the district to the superintendent as a condition of receiving federal funding pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. Sec. 1400 et seq.). If the superintendent determines that the governing board has exempted an excessive number of pupils from the testing program, the superintendent shall proportionately reduce the district's total incentive funding calculated pursuant to Section 54654.
