then to the State School Fund each fiscal year the sum the

41305.  The amounts provided under Section 41304 for any fiscal year
shall be limited to the amounts appropriated in the annual Budget
Act for the purposes of that section, and shall not exceed an amount
equal to the sum of the moneys credited to the Driver Training

41306.  The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall also allow as
otherwise provided in Section 41304 for the driver training
instruction necessary to be safely tested for a driver's license at
the Department of Motor Vehicles, those physically handicapped
pupils, mentally retarded pupils who come within the provisions of
former Section 56501 as amended by Chapter 1247 of the Statutes of
1977, and educationally handicapped pupils who are in attendance in a
public secondary school in California that offers qualified
instruction, and who may qualify for a driver's license, or other
license, issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, a
total allowance not to exceed two hundred ninety dollars ($290)
including the reimbursement provisions set forth in Section 41900 to
each school district and county superintendent of schools. All driver
training for pupils herein described shall be provided by qualified
teachers, as defined by Sections 41906 and 41907. The provisions of
this section may not be applied if reimbursement allowable under
Sections 41900 to 41912, inclusive, is sufficient to meet the total
cost of instruction as herein described.
   It is the intent of the Legislature that driver training
instruction be provided pupils as a part of the high school
curriculum, and the Legislature finds and declares that exceptional
children are entitled to the benefit of that instruction so far as
their individual capabilities permit, understanding that those pupils
herein described often require individualized and amplified driver
training instruction in order to succeed in becoming safe operators
of motor vehicles. Since without a means of self-transportation much
of the overall program of education and rehabilitation provided for
by the Legislature would be of little avail to the person without the
mobility required to become a productive and well-adjusted member of
society, the Legislature further declares that it is incumbent upon
the state to share in the cost of providing a most needed and
desirable program of driver training instruction for these
exceptional children.



41307.  In addition there shall be provided such amount as the
Superintendent of Public Instruction shall certify as necessary to
provide the allowances to school districts during each fiscal year
under the provisions of Sections 41932 to 41936, inclusive. Such
amount is hereby appropriated from the Investment Fund in the State
Treasury and shall be transferred therefrom to the State School Fund
by the State Controller each fiscal year.



41308.  Each pregnant pupil enrolled in any program for physically
handicapped pupils maintained by a county superintendent of schools,
whose only condition for being enrolled in such a program is her
pregnancy, shall be allowed to enroll in automobile driver training
provided by the school district of residence; however, the school
district shall receive, for the driver training instruction of the
pupil, only the driver training allowances authorized by Section
41900 and shall not receive, for the driver training instruction of
the pupil, driver training allowances authorized by Section 41306.



41311.  It is the intent of the Legislature that the Child Nutrition
Program shall provide permanent financial assistance to eligible
school districts, county superintendents of schools, local agencies,
private schools, parochial schools, and child development programs,
for implementing the school meal program. That financial assistance
shall be used to reimburse the cafeteria account of school districts,
county superintendents of schools, local agencies, private schools,
parochial schools, and child development programs, based upon the
number of qualifying meals served to students.
