(a) When a school district notifies the Superintendent of Public Instruction, pursuant to subdivision (a) or (c) of Section 44505, that it plans to implement a program pursuant to Article 4.5 (commencing with Section 44500), this article shall not apply to that school district. The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall continue to apportion funding to the school district pursuant to Sections 44492 and 44492.3 for the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 fiscal years. The school district may use this funding for activities necessary to implement the Peer Assistance and Review Program for Teachers, and for purposes of subdivision (b) of Section 44506.
(b) California Mentor Teacher Program funding allocated but unclaimed by individual local educational agencies at the end of the 1998-99 and the 1999-2000 fiscal years shall be offset from program funds advanced for the succeeding fiscal year, provided sufficient funds are available. Mentor teacher support funding that has been claimed, but remains unexpended, may be carried over and used for purposes of the California Peer Assistance and Review Program for Teachers (Article 4.5 (commencing with Section 44500) of Chapter 3 of Part 25).
(c) This article shall become inoperative on July 1, 2001, and, as of January 1, 2002, is repealed, unless a later enacted statute that is enacted before January 1, 2002, deletes or extends the dates on which it becomes inoperative and is repealed.
