The receipts held in such a separate account may be expended by the school committee without further appropriation for the purposes of the program or programs from which the receipts held in such account were derived or, in the case of the use of school property account, for expenses incurred in making school property available for such use, notwithstanding section 53 of chapter 44.

In a city, town or regional school district that accepts this paragraph, said city, town or district may rescind its original acceptance every third year thereafter.
