Funding for this program is unrestricted pursuant to SBX3 4 (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), enacted February 2009. For additional information, please refer to the Action on 2008 and 2009 Budget Acts Web page.

In addition, COEs verify that pupils who have elected to receive CAHSEE intensive instruction and services are being served.
