Note: According to Education Code 56832 - Chapter 7. Funding of Special Education Programs (commencing with Education Code 56700) is inoperative on July 1, 1998 and repealed as of January 1, 1999. However, this Chapter as it existed on December 31, 1998, shall continue to apply until June 30, 2001, for the purpose of recertification.

For the 1981-82 fiscal year and for each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall do the following:

(a) Compute the statewide unweighted average of the support services quotients computed pursuant to Section 56736, for the 1980-81 fiscal year.

(b) Compute a support services quotient for each district and county office claiming reimbursement pursuant to this chapter for the then current fiscal year for instructional personnel services units, other than for the severely disabled, as defined in Section 56030.5, in the following manner:

(1) If the support services quotient for the prior fiscal year is greater than 1.5 times the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a), then the quotient for the current fiscal year shall be 1.5 times the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a).

(2) If the support services quotient for the prior fiscal year is less than or equal to 1.5 times the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a) but greater than the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a), then the quotient for the then current fiscal year shall be the greater of (A) or (B):

(A) The average computed pursuant to subdivision (a).

(B) The support services quotient for the prior fiscal year minus 0.1.

(3) If the support services quotient for the prior fiscal year is less than or equal to the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a), then the quotient for the then current fiscal year shall be equal to the quotient for the prior fiscal year.

(4) If a district or county office did not operate special education programs and services in the fiscal year, its support services quotient for the then current fiscal year shall be the lesser of (A) or (B):

(A) The average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a).

(B) The statewide unweighted average for the appropriate class district or county office identified in Section 56735.

(c) The support services quotient for special day class instructional personnel services units for the severely disabled, as defined in Section 56030.5, shall be the quotient for the prior fiscal year, except that that quotient shall not exceed 1.5 times the average quotient computed pursuant to subdivision (a).

(d) No district or county office which had a nonseverely disabled support services ratio of 1.5 times the average in the 1981-82 fiscal year shall have that average reduced below 1.15 times the average in subsequent years.

(e) Compute a total support services amount for each district and county office equal to the sum of (1) and (2):

(1) Multiply the support services quotient for the current fiscal year computed pursuant to subdivision (b) or (c) by the instructional amounts for the appropriate types of programs, computed pursuant to Section 56725.

(2) Multiply the support services quotient for the current fiscal year computed pursuant to subdivision (b) by the extended year amount computed pursuant to Section 56726. Support services amounts for extended year programs for other than the severely disabled, as defined in Section 56030.5, shall be divided by 2.
