A school district applying for funds to implement a Class Size Reduction Program, as part of its application for that funding, may request that the State Board of Education grant the school district a one-year waiver of subparagraph (A) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 52122 and subdivision (c) of Section 52123, at a schoolsite or schoolsites. The State Board of Education may grant the waiver if all of the provisions of this section and Sections 52122.7 and 52122.8 are met. A school district requesting a waiver may receive Option One funding at the per pupil amount defined in subdivision (a) of Section 52126 if all of the following eligibility requirements are met:
(a) The schoolsite or schoolsites, for which the waiver is requested, is on a multitrack year-round educational schedule.
(b) A minimum of 40 percent of the school district's enrollment is on a multitrack year-round educational schedule as reported by the district from the most recent verifiable pupil data available.
(c) For each acre of the schoolsite or schoolsites for which the school district is requesting a waiver, the schoolsite has an average of at least 200 elementary pupils enrolled in instructional programs that require regular pupil attendance at the site, as reported by the district from the most recent verifiable pupil and site data available.
(d) The school district has certified that it has either reconfigured attendance boundaries in order to implement the Class Size Reduction Program, or has determined that reconfiguration is ineffective for purposes of implementing the Class Size Reduction Program, at the schoolsite or schoolsites for which the waiver is requested.
