The department shall administer this article and Section 120475 and shall adopt minimum standards for the approval of community child health and disability prevention programs and regulations as necessary. The standards shall allow necessary flexibility in the administration of county programs, taking into account the variability of county needs and resources. However, the standards, rules, and regulations may be adopted only with the advice and written recommendations of the board. Standards shall be adopted for:
(a) Education and experience requirements for directors of community child health and disability prevention programs.
(b) Health screening, evaluation, and diagnostic procedures for child health and disability prevention programs.
(c) Public and private facilities and providers that may participate in community child health and disability prevention programs.
The department shall adopt a five-year state plan for child health and disability prevention services by October 1, 1977. The plan shall include a method for allocating child health and disability prevention funds to counties. The plan shall be reviewed and revised as necessary to provide a basis for allocating state child health and disability prevention program funds throughout the state.
Nothing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting programs provided pursuant to this article from being conducted in public and private school facilities; provided that, with respect to private school facilities, no services provided thereon pursuant to this article and financed by public funds shall result in any material benefit to, or be conducted in a manner that furthers any educational or other mission of, such a school or any person or entity maintaining the school.
