Categorical Education Block Grant Funding; Article 2. Pupil Retention Block Grant
(a) There is hereby established the pupil retention block grant. The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall apportion block grant funds to a school district in the same relative statewide proportion that the school district received in the 2003-04 fiscal year for the programs listed in Section 41506, adjusted for changes in program participation by school districts in the 2004-05 fiscal year. For purposes of this subdivision, funding received in the 2003-04 fiscal year shall, because of the circumstances of deferrals and deficits, include funding attributable to the 2003-04 fiscal year regardless of the actual date of its receipt.
(b) A school district may expend funds received pursuant to this article for any purpose authorized by the programs listed in Section 41506 as the statutes governing those programs read on January 1, 2004.
(c) For purposes of this article, "school district" includes a county office of education if county offices of education are eligible to receive funds for the programs that are listed in Section 41506. The block grant of a county office of education shall be based only on those programs for which it was eligible to receive funds in the 2003-04 fiscal year.
