For purposes of administering this chapter and the provisions of the Education Code Section 41404.5, an "unusual circumstance" will be deemed to exist in any single year when:
(a) A district employs nonteaching certificated personnel to manage a program available to one or more other districts on a contractual basis, or
(b) A district experiences a decline in pupil enrollments that results in a reduction in the number of teaching employees that cannot be matched by a corresponding reduction in the number of administrative employees before the November 1 reporting date due to existing contractual obligations, or
(c) A district participates in categorically federally funded programs that require the employment of program coordinators or project directors out of proportion to the number of teachers employed in the programs.
