LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 85, as amended, Mendoza. School facilities: security locks.
Existing law, the Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998 (the Greene Act), requires the State Allocation Board to allocate to applicant school districts prescribed per-unhoused-pupil state funding for construction and modernization of school facilities, including hardship funding and supplemental funding for site development and acquisition. Under existing law, all new construction projects submitted to the Division of the State Architect pursuant to the Greene Act are required to include locks that allow doors to classrooms and rooms with an occupancy of 5 or more persons to be locked from the inside, except as specified.
Existing law requires the Department of General Services to pass upon, and approve or reject, all plans for the construction of, or, if the estimated cost exceeds $25,000, the alteration of, any building used, or designed to be used, for community college purposes.
This bill, on and after July 1, 2012, would require modernization projects for school facilities submitted under the Greene Act to the Division of the State Architect that include rehabilitation in a classroom or a room with an occupancy of 5 or more persons, as well as construction plans for community college facilities submitted to the Department of General Services and plans for the alteration of community college facilities that include rehabilitation in a classroom or a room with an occupancy of 5 or more persons, to include the installation of locks that allow doors to be locked from the inside, except as specified.
