52460.  The governing board of a school district which operates an
agricultural career technical education program may apply to the
Superintendent of Public Instruction for an incentive grant, pursuant
to this article, for the purpose of purchasing or leasing
agricultural career technical education equipment.



52461.  The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall award grants
to applicant school districts which meet the following requirements:
   (a) The school district shall contribute an amount of funds equal
to the amount of the grant to the purchase or lease of equipment for
use in agricultural career technical education programs.
   (b) The school district shall certify to the Superintendent of
Public Instruction that the grant funds received and the matching
funds contributed by the district shall be used solely for the
purpose of purchasing or leasing equipment for use in agricultural
career technical education programs.


52461.5.  (a) For purposes of this article, "agricultural career
technical education equipment" shall mean any nonsalary item of
expenditure, including, but not limited to, capital outlay, for
approved agricultural career technical education programs.
   (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any requirement of
this article or any other provision chaptered during the 1983-84
fiscal year that school districts contribute local matching funds to
be eligible for state funds for nonsalary costs of career technical
agriculture programs may be waived by the Superintendent of Public
Instruction if he or she finds that a matching requirement would
create a financial hardship for any school district.



52462.  The State Board of Education may, with the advice of the
Superintendent of Public Instruction, adopt rules and regulations
governing the distribution of funds provided for purposes of this
article and shall adopt criteria for assessing whether school
districts have met the requirements of Section 52461.
