CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1065


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Bradford

February 18, 2011


An act to amend Section 49068 of the Education Code, relating to pupil transfers.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1065, as amended, Bradford. Pupil transfers: records.
Existing law requires a pupil’s former school district, as defined, or private school to transfer the pupil’s permanent record, or a copy thereof, upon a request from the school district, as defined, or private school where the pupil intends to enroll.
This bill would require the former school district or private school to perform the transfer no later than 5 business days following the date of the request. By imposing a new requirement on school districts and other local educational entities to transfer records within 5 business days, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

A
(b) A school district requesting such a transfer of a record pursuant to subdivision (a) shall notify the parent of his or her right to receive a copy of the record and a right to a hearing to challenge the content of the record. The State Board of Education
