(b) For each necessary small school which has an average daily attendance during the fiscal year of 25 or more and less than 49, exclusive of pupils attending the 7th and 8th grades of a junior high school, and for which school at least two teachers were hired full time for more than one-half of the days schools were maintained, the Superintendent shall compute for the school district one hundred five thousand eight hundred fifty dollars ($105,850).

(c) For each necessary small school which has an average daily attendance during the fiscal year of 49 or more, but less than 73, exclusive of pupils attending the 7th and 8th grades of a junior high school, and for which school three teachers were hired full time for more than one-half of the days schools were maintained, the Superintendent shall compute for the school district one hundred fifty-eight thousand seven hundred seventy-five dollars ($158,775).

(d) For each necessary small school which has an average daily attendance during the fiscal year of 73 or more and less than 97, exclusive of pupils attending the 7th and 8th grades of a junior high school, and for which school four teachers were hired full time for more than one-half of the days schools were maintained, the Superintendent shall compute for the school district two hundred eleven thousand seven hundred dollars ($211,700).

(e) A school district that qualifies under this section may use this funding calculation until the local control funding formula allocation pursuant to Section 42238.02, as implemented by Section 42238.03, per unit of average daily attendance multiplied by the average daily attendance produces state aid equal to the small school funding formula.
