No. 1174

An act to amend Section 32210 of the Education Code, relating to pupil safety.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1174, as amended, Furutani. School safety: willful disturbance of public schools activities schools and public school meetings.
(1) Existing law provides that any person who willfully disturbs any public school or any public school meeting is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine of not more than $500.
This bill would additionally provide that a person who willfully disturbs any a public school activity, as defined to include, but not necessarily be limited to, the arrival and departure of pupils to and from public school grounds during school hours as defined, or a public school meeting by creating a disruption that threatens the physical safety of school children coming to, leaving, or attending school is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine of not more than $500. Because this bill would expand the scope of an existing crime, it would impose a state-mandated local program.
(2) 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 no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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