LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2168, as amended, Campos. Public postsecondary education: California College Campus Discrimination and Violence Prevention Task Force. School employees: San Jose Unified School District.
Existing law establishes a system of public elementary and secondary schools in this state pursuant to which school districts operate schools and employ certificated personnel to provide instruction to pupils. Existing law establishes procedures for the hiring of these employees, and authorizes school districts to negotiate, and enter into, collective bargaining agreements with entities representing employees.
This bill would declare that the San Jose Unified School District was, and is, authorized to enter into, and execute the provisions of, a specified collective bargaining agreement between that district and the San Jose Teachers Association.
This bill would make a legislative finding and declaration as to the necessity of a special statute applicable to the San Jose Unified School District.

Existing law establishes the segments of the postsecondary education system in the state, including the University of California administered by the Regents of the University of California, the California State University administered by the Trustees of the California State University, the California Community Colleges administered by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, and the independent institutions of higher education in this state.

This bill would establish the California College Campus Discrimination and Violence Prevention Task Force consisting of 13 members appointed by the Governor, the Speaker of the Senate Committee on Rules, and the Speaker of the Assembly, as specified. The task force would also consist of a representative of the Chancellor of the California State University appointed by the trustees, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges appointed by the board of governors, the organization that represents the largest number, as of January 1, 2015, of independent institutions of higher education, as defined, to be appointed by the organization, and requests a representative of the Office of the President of the University of California to be appointed by the regents. The bill would require the task force to examine and make recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature, on or before January 1, 2016, on steps that can be taken to reduce incidents of discrimination, hate crime, and campus violence on the campuses of the University of California, the California State University, the California Community Colleges, and independent institution of higher education. The bill would repeal these provisions on March 1, 2016.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YESNO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Notwithstanding Section 44929.21 of the Education Code or any other law, the San Jose Unified School District was, and is, authorized to enter into, and execute the provisions of, the collective bargaining agreement between that district and the San Jose Teachers Association for the term of July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2016, inclusive, which was ratified by the governing board of the San Jose Unified School District on May 23, 2013.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique labor relations situation in the San Jose Unified School District stemming from the collective bargaining agreement entered into between that district and the San Jose Teachers Association in 2013. The enactment of Section 1 of this act as a special law applicable to the San Jose Unified School District is therefore necessary.
SECTION 1.Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 67420) is added to Part 40 of Division 5 of Title 3 of the Education Code, to read:
17.California College Campus Discrimination and Violence Prevention Task Force
