The board of any school district that has adopted a local option budget in a prior school year may choose not to adopt such a budget or may adopt a budget in an amount less than the amount authorized. If the board of any school district whose authority to adopt a local option budget is not continuous and permanent refrains from adopting a local option budget, the authority of such district to adopt a local option budget shall not be extended by such refrainment beyond the period specified in the resolution authorizing adoption of such budget.

Any such school district shall operate under the provisions of this section after the period of time specified in the resolution has expired.

(f) Any resolution adopted pursuant to this section may revoke or repeal any resolution previously adopted by the board.

The maximum amount of the local option budget of a school district under all resolutions in effect shall not exceed the limitation set forth in subsection (a) in any school year.

(g) The provisions of this section shall be effective from and after July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2017.
