CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 848


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Campos

February 17, 2011


An act to amend Section 8152 of the Education Code, relating to apprenticeship programs.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 848, as amended, Campos. Apprenticeship programs.
Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, whichever is appropriate, to make reimbursements to high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, community colleges, or adult schools for related and supplemental instruction provided to indentured apprentices in apprenticeship programs, as specified.
This bill would require the Superintendent or the Chancellor to require recipients of reimbursements for related and supplemental instruction provided to apprentices in the building and construction trades to report annually, prior to receiving reimbursement, information concerning the number and percentage of those apprentices who have received postsecondary educational credit and the amount of credit earned, and the number and percentage of apprentice graduates who have completed a postsecondary degree. The bill would require this information to be formatted for collection and presentation so as to best convey pupil progress toward degree completion for each participating institution and would also require the Superintendent or Chancellor, upon request, to provide the information to the Division of Apprenticeship Standards in the Department of Industrial Relations.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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