(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this chapter, if a school district and school participate in the school-based program coordination, any schoolsite advisory committee may elect to designate the schoolsite council to function as that advisory committee for all purposes required by statute or regulations for a period of up to two years.
(b) If the governing board of a school district adopts a policy that establishes a schoolwide decisionmaking body at each school to promote continuous improvement through a single planning process that coordinates federal and state programs and services, then that body may be designated as a single decisionmaking or coordinating body, if the composition of the body meets the requirements of Section 52852.
(c) It is the intent of the Legislature that, to the extent possible, the members of the schoolsite council represent the composition of the school's pupil population.
