(a) Year-round school grants awarded under this article for purposes of the implementation of multitrack year-round school programs shall be expended for the following purposes:
(1) Planning, including community activities, necessary for that implementation.
(2) One-time minor capital outlay and equipment associated with converting school facilities to multitrack year-round operation.
(3) Deferred maintenance on facilities proposed for multitrack year-round operation.
(4) Other necessary activities associated with conversion to multitrack year-round operations, including, but not limited to, curriculum revision and scheduling changes and staff development.
(b) These implementation grants are available on a one-time basis for each new multitrack year-round schoolsite, subject to application approval, in an amount up to twenty-five dollars ($25) per pupil currently enrolled in the site planned for year-round operation, as that pupil enrollment is identified in the CBEDS report transmitted to the State Department of Education by the school district.
For purposes of this subdivision, "CBEDS report" means the report transmitted by school districts to the State Department of Education for purposes of the California Basic Education Data System that exists within the department and is based upon a single annual collection of. data about school staff and pupil enrollment conducted by the department for reporting, program management, and planning purposes.
The superintendent may approve all or any portion of an application for an implementation grant, as described in subdivision (a) of this section, up to a maximum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) per schoolsite. If the applications submitted exceed the appropriations available for this purpose, the amount per pupil shall be prorated by an equal amount.
(c) If a schoolsite does not operate on a multitrack year-round basis in the second subsequent fiscal year following receipt of a year-round implementation grant pursuant to this section, the school district shall repay the implementation grant received for that schoolsite, plus interest that the repayment amount would have earned in the Pooled Money Investment Fund, within one year following the date on which the schoolsite was to begin to operate on a multitrack year-round basis. If the grant, plus interest, is not repaid within the one-year period, the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall withhold the total amount owed pursuant to this subdivision from the apportionment to be made to that district calculated pursuant to Section 42238.
