§ 2802 Local authority.
§ 2803 Local funds.
Any local district initiating an expanded school year program must provide such program within the limits of state funding it would receive absent its decision to operate such program; provided, however, that nothing in this section shall preclude a district from using existing or additional local, federal or other nonstate funding for the provision of an expanded school year program.
§ 2804 Rules and procedures.
(a) The Secretary of Education and Director of the Office of Management and Budget must approve such expanded program at least 4 months before such plan is implemented in the local district. Such approval must be based, in part, on an analysis of a 10-year student population projection for the local district.
(b) Such plan must clearly provide for teacher option for employment and must provide state compensation for days beyond the regular full work days of employment as defined in § 1305 of this title at the daily rate defined in § 1703(j) of this title.
