EDUCATION CODE
SECTION 41540-41544



41540.  (a) There is hereby established the targeted instructional
improvement block grant. Commencing with the 2005-06 fiscal year, the
Superintendent 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 41541.
   (b) If a school district is not in violation of a court order
regarding desegregation, the school district may expend funds
received pursuant to this article for any purpose authorized by the
programs listed in Section 41541 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
41541. 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.
   (d) A school that received funding in the 2000-01 fiscal year, or
any fiscal year thereafter, from a desegregation program or a
targeted instructional improvement grant program pursuant to Chapter
2.5 (commencing with Section 54200) of Part 29, that was allocated by
a school district as part of a court-ordered desegregation program
before the school converted to a charter school, shall continue to
receive its proportionate share of funding from the school district
through the block grant established pursuant to this section if all
of the following conditions are met:
   (1) The charter school continues to serve the same general
population.
   (2) The charter school implements the intended goals of the court
order.
   (3) The court order remains in effect.
   (e) On and after July 1, 2006, subdivision (d) shall not apply to
charter schools that receive funds through the Charter School
Categorical Block Grant established pursuant to Section 47634.1.



41541.  The targeted instructional improvement block grant shall
include funding apportioned to school districts prior to January 1,
2005, for purposes of the following programs:
   (a) Targeted instructional improvement as set forth in Chapter 2.5
(commencing with Section 54200) of Part 29.
   (b) Supplemental grants as set forth in Article 9 (commencing with
Section 54760) of Chapter 9 of Part 29.



41542.  Commencing with the 2006-07 fiscal year, the amount of
funding a school district receives pursuant to this article shall be
adjusted for inflation by the amount calculated pursuant to Section
42238.1 and for growth as measured by the regular average daily
attendance used to calculate the second principal apportionment for
kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive, unless otherwise provided
in the annual Budget Act.



41543.  In expending funds received pursuant to this article, a
school district shall give first priority to funding the costs of a
court-ordered desegregation program if the order exists and is still
in force.


41544.  (a) For a basic aid district that was entitled to
reimbursement pursuant to Section 42247.4, as that section read on
January 1, 2001, and that received an apportionment pursuant to
subdivision (h) of Section 42247.4, as that section read on January
1, 2001, because a court order directs pupils to transfer to that
district as part of the court-ordered voluntary pupil transfer
program, the Superintendent, commencing with the 2001-02 fiscal year,
shall calculate an apportionment of state funds for that basic aid
district that provides 70 percent of the school district revenue
limit calculated pursuant to Section 42238 that would have been
apportioned to the school district from which the pupils were
transferred for the average daily attendance of any pupils credited
under that court order who did not attend the basic aid school
district before the 1995-96 fiscal year.
   (b) For purposes of this section, "basic aid district" means a
school district that does not receive from the state, for any fiscal
year in which this section is applied, an apportionment of state
funds pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 42238.
