CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2341


Introduced by Assembly Member Quirk-Silva

February 21, 2014


An act to add Section 60902 to the Education Code, relating to education data systems.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2341, as amended, Quirk-Silva. California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System: pupils of military families.
Existing law establishes the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System, as provided, and requires the system to have specified characteristics, including, among other things, the capability to monitor pupil achievement on certain tests and the high school exit examination from year to year and school to school.
Existing law also ratifies the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children with the purpose of removing barriers to educational success imposed on children of military families due to the frequent moves and deployment of their parents.
This bill would require, on or before July 1, 2015, the Superintendent of Public Instruction to add a reporting process within the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System requiring local educational agencies to report the enrollment of pupils of military families, as defined. The bill would require the State Department of Education to include pupils of military families as an indicator for specified purposes. The bill would prohibit this data from being used to compile reports required by specified federal provisions. By requiring local educational agencies to report this information, the 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:
