(a) The governing board of a school district may, with the consent of the county superintendent of schools, establish a revolving cash fund for the use of the chief accounting officer of the school district, by adopting a resolution setting forth the necessity for the revolving cash fund, the officer for whom and the purposes for which the revolving cash fund shall be available, and the amount of the fund. The purposes for which the revolving cash fund shall be available shall include the purposes specified in Section 45167. Three certified copies of the resolution shall be transmitted to the county superintendent of schools. If he or she approves the establishment of the fund, the county superintendent of schools shall endorse his or her consent on the resolution and return one copy to
the governing board of the school district, and transmit one copy to the county auditor.
(b) The maximum amount allowed for revolving cash funds established pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be the lesser of:
(1) Two percent of the school district’s estimated expenditures for the current fiscal year, or
(2) A dollar amount limit of seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000) for any elementary school or high school district and one hundred fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for any unified school district for fiscal year 1990–91. The dollar amount limit for each school district shall, through the 2012–13 fiscal year, be increased annually by the percentage increase in the school district’s revenue limit established by Section 42238, as that section read on January 1, 2013. The dollar amount limit for each school district
