arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) County superintendents who operated pregnant minors programs in the 1979-80 fiscal year, or commenced operation during the 1996-97 fiscal year, shall continue to operate pregnant minors programs in the 1980-81 fiscal year, or the 1997-98 fiscal year, as appropriate, and each fiscal year thereafter, and school districts that increased their revenue limit in the 1981-82 fiscal year pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 42241 shall continue to operate pregnant minors programs in subsequent fiscal years, unless the program is transferred to another local education agency, or unless the county superintendent or district superintendent demonstrates that programs and services for pregnant minors, such as continuation school, home instruction, or independent instruction, are available from other local education agencies in the county, pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

(b) Pregnant minors programs that continue to operate pursuant to subdivision (a) and that continue to operate as Cal-SAFE programs may continue to claim funding pursuant to Section 2551.3 for an amount of average daily attendance up to the amount certified at the 1998-99 annual apportionment for that program. Programs continuing under this section may enroll pupils above the level of average daily attendance certified at the 1998-99 annual apportionment, and that additional average daily attendance shall be eligible for funding pursuant to Section 54749 and provisions that apply to the educational program that the pupil attends.

(c) County offices of education that choose to retain their pregnant minor program revenue limit rather than convert to the Cal-SAFE revenue limit shall provide child care services from funds provided in their pregnant minor program revenue limit pursuant to Section 2551.3 for children of pupils comprising base year average daily attendance as certified at the 1998-99 annual apportionment. Growth funding for child care shall be equal to the proportionate share of child care funding for the specific agency's program, determined by dividing the certified growth in pupil average daily attendance by the total certified average daily attendance.

(d) Nothing in this section shall be construed as allowing a county superintendent to receive funding pursuant to Sections 2551.3 and 54749 for the same average daily attendance, or for average daily attendance generated by the same pupil on the same calendar day.
