AB-2481 Elementary and secondary education: length of schoolday and school year: analysis.(2013-2014)

As Amends the Law Today

 The Superintendent of Public Instruction, on or before December 1, 2015, shall provide the Legislature with a cost-benefit analysis regarding various potential changes to the length or structure of schooldays or school years in public elementary and secondary schools with the objective of providing increased educational benefits and improved life outcomes to disadvantaged and underperforming pupils. The analysis shall weigh the potential benefits of these improvements compared to the potential costs of the improvements, including, but not limited to, increased school operating costs for personnel and facilities, and may propose creative solutions in that regard. The analysis shall specifically consider the decline in academic achievement occurring each year during the summer vacation period from interruption of instruction. The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall contract with an educational institution or research organization to perform the cost-benefit analysis.
