(1) (A) For each school district, the school district's revenue limit in the 2012-13 fiscal year as computed pursuant to this article, as this article read on January 1, 2013, divided by the 2012-13 fiscal year average daily attendance of the school district computed pursuant to Section 42238.05. For purposes of this section, average daily attendance shall include any applicable revenue limit average daily attendance and shall be considered final for purposes of this section as of the annual apportionment for the 2012-13 fiscal year, as calculated for purposes of the certification required on or before February 20, 2014, pursuant to Sections 41332 and 41339.

(B) The amounts determined pursuant to this subdivision shall not be adjusted for the reduction set forth in Section 12.42 of the Budget Act of 2012.

(b) Of the amounts computed for school districts pursuant to subdivision (a), the Superintendent shall determine the funding rate per unit of average daily attendance above which fall not more than 10 percent of the total number of school districts statewide.

Each school district or charter school for which this calculation yields an amount greater than zero shall be eligible for an economic recovery target payment equal to the amount of the difference. A school district or charter school that has a funding rate per unit of average daily attendance calculated pursuant to subdivision (a) that exceeds the rate calculated pursuant to subdivision (b) shall not be eligible for an economic recovery target payment.
