For each school district which receives a grant or allocation pursuant to this article, commencing with the fiscal year next succeeding the fiscal year in which the grant or allocation was received, and for each fiscal year thereafter, the Controller shall compute an amount equal to one cent ($0.01) on each one hundred dollars ($100) of the assessed valuation of property within the district. The Controller shall, during the next fiscal year following that in which he or she makes the computation pursuant to the preceding sentence of this section, deduct the amount so computed in equal amounts from each of the February, March, April, and May installments of the apportionments made to the district from the State School Fund under Sections 41330 to 41343, inclusive, and Sections 41600 to 41972, inclusive; and, on order of the Controller, the amount so deducted shall be transferred to the State School Building Aid Fund. All money transferred to the State School Building Aid Fund under this section shall be available only for transfer to the General Fund under Section 17204, as enacted by Section 2 of Chapter 1010 of the Statutes of 1978.
The Controller shall make the computations and deductions required by this section for 30 fiscal years or until the time as the total of the amounts so deducted equal 50 percent of the amount of the grant or allocation which was made to the school district, whichever first occurs.
Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, for each fiscal year for which a computation is made pursuant to the section, the maximum rate of school district tax for the school district for which the computation is made shall be increased by one cent ($0.01) per each one hundred dollars ($100) of the assessed value of property within the district and shall be in addition to any amount of tax otherwise authorized to be levied, and amounts raised through the levy of the tax may be used to offset any reduction in equalization aid resulting from the deductions made pursuant to this section.
The increase in the maximum school district tax provided by this section shall be deemed to be for bonded debt service or current capital construction. If the one cent ($0.01) rate of school district tax levied by the district causes the tax levied by the district for bonded debt service and for current capital construction in the same year to exceed the forty-cent ($0.40) tax amount, as that term is defined by Section 16070 or 16071, whichever is applicable, for each grade level maintained by the district, the Controller shall not make the deduction otherwise required by this section for the fiscal year.
