Chapter 14. School Finance* Subchapter 3.75. Program to Reduce Class Size in Two Courses in Grade Definitions
For purposes of administering the Program to Reduce Class Size in Two Courses in Grade 9 also known as Grade 9 Class Size Reduction (Grade 9 CSR), pursuant to Education Code sections 52080 to 52090, inclusive, the following definitions shall apply:
(a) "Certification" means a declaration made by a school district attesting to the compliance of each participating school site with each of the provisions of Grade 9 CSR.
(b) "Class" means an organized group of pupils scheduled to report regularly at a particular time to a particular certificated teacher for the purpose of pursuing a particular course that is designated primarily for pupils in grade 9.
(c) "Course" means an instructional unit of an area or field of organized knowledge, usually provided on a semester, year, or prescribed length of time in the subjects designated as English, mathematics, science, and social studies.
(d) "Enrollment" means the pupils listed on the class rosters for classes participating in Grade 9 CSR. However, an individual pupil may not be included in the count of enrollment in a Grade 9 CSR class for any month until the pupil has actually been in attendance at least once during that month.
(e) "Full-year equivalent enrollment" (FYEE) means enrollment adjusted by the relationship of the number of school days during the school year that designated classes pursuant to Education Code section 52084(a) participated in Grade 9 CSR to the total number of school days in the school year. To determine the FYEE the numerator of the fraction shall be the total number of school days during the school year that the designated classes participated in Grade 9 CSR. The denominator of the fraction shall be the total number of school days in the school year or, as appropriate, the total number of school days in the semester or two trimesters. The resulting percentage shall be rounded to the nearest hundredth of a percent and multiplied by the enrollment as defined in section 15140(d) above.
(f) "Per pupil rate" is the amount established in the Annual Budget Act adjusted annually for inflation pursuant to Education Code section 52086.
