LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

SB 1016, as amended, Wyland. School facilities: State Allocation Board. Pupil instruction: common core academic content standards and curriculum frameworks.

(1) Existing law appropriates $1,250,000,000, from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for transfer to Section A of the State School Fund to support the integration of academic content standards in instruction, as specified, and requires the Superintendent to apportion these funds to school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, and the state special schools using an equal rate per pupil based on prior year enrollment. Existing law, among other things, requires the school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, or state special schools receiving these funds to use them for certain purposes, including professional development of teachers, administrators, paraprofessional educators, or other classified employees involved in the direct instruction of pupils, as specified.

This bill would make these provisions inoperative on May 15, 2014, and repealed as of January 1, 2015, and would, except as provided in (2), require the Superintendent to apportion any of the appropriated moneys not already apportioned pursuant to the authority described above to school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools using an equal rate per unit of average daily attendance.

(2) This bill, on May 15, 2014, would, from the appropriated moneys not already apportioned pursuant to the authority described in (1), appropriate $50,000,000 to the Superintendent for purposes of establishing pilot programs in urban, suburban, and rural school districts that measure the effectiveness of the adopted common core academic content standards and adopted curriculum frameworks that are aligned to the adopted common core academic content standards. The bill would require a school district receiving funding to establish a pilot program, to develop, on or before July 1, 2015, and in consultation with parental organizations in the district, the pilot program. The bill would require the school district to review and revise, in consultation with parental organizations in the district, the pilot program every 6 months. The bill would require the school district to submit to the State Department of Education the pilot program and revisions of the pilot program for review. The bill would require the school district to make available to the public the pilot program and revisions to the pilot program.

(3) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.

Existing law provides that the members of the State Allocation Board and the Members of the Legislature meeting with the board receive no compensation for the services they provide under the Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998, but are to be reimbursed for the actual and necessary expenses they incur in connection with the duties they perform pursuant to that act.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the provision described above.
