(a) The governing board of any school district shall, not later than the date prescribed by law for approval of the publication budget of every year, fix the annual salaries for the ensuing school year for all persons employed by the district in positions not requiring certification qualifications. The governing board may, at the time, include an increase in such annual salaries, all or part of which increase is conditional upon the actual receipt by the district of anticipated revenue from all sources. If the revenue actually received is less than that anticipated, the governing board may, at any time during the school year, reduce such annual salaries by an amount not to exceed the amount which was granted subject to the receipt of such revenues.
(b) The governing board of a school district may, at any time during the school year, increase the salaries of persons employed by the district in positions not requiring certification qualifications. Such increase shall be effective on any date ordered by the governing board.
(c) A governing board may, at any time, increase the wages or salaries of classified employees if the board or, in a merit system district, the personnel commission approves a classification change in a position, a class of positions, or any or all of the positions or classes of positions a part of the classified service.
(d) The provisions of this section shall not be construed to permit a governing board to demote or dismiss an employee as a result of reclassification of a position or class of positions except as may otherwise be permitted by law.
(e) This section shall apply to districts that have adopted the merit system inthe same manner and effect as if it were a part of Article 6 (commencing with Section 45240) of this chapter.
