EDUCATION CODE
SECTION 69440



69440.  (a) Commencing with the 2001-02 academic year, and each
academic year thereafter, Cal Grant T awards shall be used only for
tuition and student fees for a maximum of one academic year of
full-time attendance in a program of professional preparation that
has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher
Credentialing. The maximum award amount, and the total amount of
funding, shall be determined each year in the annual Budget Act. As a
condition of receiving a Cal Grant T award, a recipient shall teach
for one year in a high-priority school, as defined in paragraph (3)
of subdivision (c) of Section 44510, for each two thousand dollar
($2,000) incentive provided through the Cal Grant T Program, for a
period not to exceed four years. Any recipient who fails to meet his
or her teaching obligation shall repay the Cal Grant T award.
   (b) The commission shall allocate Cal Grant T awards using
academic criteria or criteria related to past performance similar to
that used in awarding Cal Grant A awards for the 2000-01 academic
year.
