LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 86, Committee on Budget. Education finance: education omnibus trailer bill.
(1) Existing law establishes procedures and reimbursement provisions for the attendance of apprentices at high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, community colleges, and adult schools under vocational education programs standards that are established with the participation of the State Department of Education, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations.
This bill would revise the role of the State Department of Education in these programs, and would, among other things, establish standards for the provision of state funding and reimbursements for these programs at high schools, unified school districts, regional occupational centers or programs, and adult schools separate from these programs at community colleges. The bill would require, by March 15, 2014, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations, with equal participation by specified entities, to develop common administrative practices and treatment of costs and services, as well as other policies related to apprenticeship programs.
(2) Existing law, the Child Care and Development Services Act, administered by the State Department of Education, requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to administer child care and development programs that offer a full range of services for eligible children from infancy to 13 years of age. Existing law requires the Superintendent to establish a fee schedule for families using child care and development services pursuant to the act, and limits a contractor’s ability to charge additional fees. Existing law exempts families that meet certain criteria from family fees for a cumulative period of up to 12 months.
This bill would instead require the Superintendent to establish a revised fee schedule for families using preschool and child care and development services. The bill would require the Superintendent to first submit the adjusted family fee schedule to the Department of Finance for approval. The bill would require that families be assessed a flat monthly fee, based on income, as specified, certified family need for full-time or part-time care services, and enrollment, and not based on attendance, as specified. The bill would require that the family fee schedule differentiate between fees for part-time care and full-time care and that the family fee be assessed at initial enrollment and reassessed as specified. The bill would also state the Legislature’s intent that new family fees be cost neutral to the state and generate roughly the same amount of revenue as was generated under the previous family fee schedule. The bill would specify that the family fee schedule that was in effect for the 2012–13 fiscal year shall remain in effect for the 2013–14 fiscal year until as specified. The bill would make organizational, conforming, and nonsubstantive changes.
(3) Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to encourage state preschool program applicants or contracting agencies to offer full-day services through a combination of part-day preschool slots and wraparound general child care and development programs, as defined. Existing law also requires fees to be assessed and collected for families with children in part-day preschool programs, or families receiving wraparound child care services, or both, as provided.
This bill would require the Superintendent to annually report to the Department of Finance, on or before October 1 of each year, the fees collected from families who have children enrolled in the California state preschool program, as specified.
(4) Existing law provides for income eligibility standards for families to receive child care and development services. Existing law provides that “income eligible,” for the purposes of the Child Care and Development Services Act, means that a family’s adjusted monthly income is at or below 70% of the state median income, adjusted for family size, and adjusted annually. Notwithstanding this provision, existing law requires, for the 2012–13 fiscal year, the income eligibility limits to be 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007–08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.
This bill would require, notwithstanding these provisions, for the 2013–14 fiscal year, the income eligibility limits to be 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007–08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.
(5) Existing law authorizes the City and County of San Francisco, until July 1, 2014, and as a pilot project, to develop and implement an individualized county child care subsidy plan, requires the city and county, on or before June 30, 2014, to submit a final report to the Legislature and other specified entities that summarizes the impact of the plan, requires the city and county to phase out the plan and implement the state’s requirements for child care subsidies as of July 1, 2016, and repeals these provisions on January 1, 2017.
This bill would instead authorize the City and County of San Francisco to implement the individualized county child care subsidy plan until July 1, 2015, require the city and county to phase out the plan and implement the state’s requirements for child care subsidies as of July 1, 2017, require the city and county to submit the final report on or before June 30, 2015, and repeal these provisions on January 1, 2018.
(6) Existing law, until January 1, 2014, authorizes the County of San Mateo to implement an individualized county child care subsidy plan, and requires the county to phase out the plan between January 1, 2014, and January 1, 2016. Existing law provides for the repeal of these provisions on January 1, 2016.
This bill would instead authorize the County of San Mateo to implement the individualized county child care subsidy plan until January 1, 2015, require the county to phase out the plan between January 1, 2015, and January 1, 2017, and repeal these provisions on January 1, 2017.
(7) Existing law requires the Controller to draw warrants on the State Treasury in each month of the year for the purpose of funding school districts, county superintendents of schools, and community college districts. Existing law defers the drawing of specified warrants until later dates.
This bill would revise and recast a provision authorizing the deferral of several specified warrants.
(8) Existing law, which becomes inoperative on June 30, 2013, and is repealed on January 1, 2014, requires the governing board of a school district seeking to sell or lease real property designed to provide direct instruction or instructional support that the governing board deems to be surplus property to first provide a written offer to sell or lease that property to any charter school that has submitted a written request to the school district to be notified of surplus real property offered by the school district for sale or lease, as specified.
This bill would delete the repeal provision, thereby extending the operation of this provision indefinitely. The bill would revise the procedures and requirements for the sale of surplus property to charter schools, and would limit the provisions to charter schools that, at the time of the offer, have projections of at least 80 units of in-district average daily attendance for the following fiscal year.
(9) Existing law, until January 1, 2014, authorizes a school district to deposit the proceeds from the sale of surplus real property, together with any personal property located on that property, purchased entirely with local funds, into the general fund of the school district and to use those proceeds for any one-time general fund purpose. Existing law requires the Office of Public School Construction to submit a final report, by January 1, 2014, to the State Allocation Board and certain committees of the Legislature relating to school districts that have exercised authority pursuant to those provisions.
This bill would extend the operation of those provisions to January 1, 2016, and would revise the date on which the final report is required to be submitted from January 1, 2014, to January 1, 2015.
(10) Existing law establishes the School Facilities Emergency Repair Account in the State Treasury, and requires the State Allocation Board to administer the account. Existing law establishes the Proposition 98 Reversion Account in the General Fund, and requires that the Legislature, from time to time, transfer into this account moneys previously appropriated in satisfaction of the constitutional minimum funding requirements that have not been disbursed or otherwise encumbered for the purposes for which they were appropriated. Existing law generally requires an amount, equaling 50% of the unappropriated balance of the Proposition 98 Reversion Account or $100,000,000, whichever is greater, to be transferred in the annual Budget Act from the Proposition 98 Reversion Account to the School Facilities Emergency Repair Account. However, the amount to be transferred under this provision was set at $0 for the 2009–10, 2010–11, 2011–12, and 2012–13 fiscal years.
This bill would also set the amount to be transferred for the 2013–14 fiscal year to $0.
(11) Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district with an average daily attendance of over 100,000 to allow as an expenditure from the cafeteria fund or account a share of money that is generated from the joint sale of items between the cafeteria and the associated student body student store, and also authorizes the governing board of a school district operating school cafeterias to establish and maintain a cafeteria equipment reserve, as specified.
This bill would repeal those provisions.
(12) Existing law requires, for the 1990–91 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, that moneys to be applied by the state for the support of school districts, community college districts, and direct elementary and secondary level instructional services provided by the state be distributed in accordance with certain calculations governing the proration of those moneys among the 3 segments of public education. Existing law makes that provision inapplicable to the 1992–93 to 2012–13 fiscal years, inclusive.
This bill would also make that provision inapplicable to the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(13) Existing law provides that when a school district becomes insolvent and requires an emergency apportionment from the state, that the Superintendent of Public Instruction, operating through an appointed administrator, take specified actions, including, among others, implementing substantial changes in the school district’s fiscal policies and practices, and sets forth the administrator’s powers and responsibilities in that regard.
This bill would authorize the Superintendent to also appoint a trustee with the powers and responsibilities of an administrator.
(14) Existing law authorizes a school district to receive an advance of apportionments owed to the school district by the State School Fund in accordance with specified procedures and requirements.
This bill would specify that a school district to is authorized to receive an advance of apportionments owed to the school district from the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account. The bill would also make conforming changes to related sections in the Government Code.
(15) Existing law establishes the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund in the State Treasury, and authorizes loans to be made from the fund to qualifying charter schools. Existing law establishes the Charter School Security Fund, and authorizes deposits to be made from that fund into the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund in case of a default on a loan made from the latter fund. Under existing law, these funds are administered by the State Department of Education.
This bill would require the California School Finance Authority to administer the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund and the Charter School Security Fund commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(16) Existing law establishes the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for, among other purposes, the establishment of professional standards, assessments, and examinations for entry and advancement in the teaching profession.
This bill would authorize the commission to charge fees to recover the costs of reviewing new educator preparation programs and specified accreditation activities, as provided.
(17) The Charter Schools Act of 1992 provides procedures for the calculation of average daily attendance for the purpose of funding charter schools.
This bill would revise certain of these procedures, and specifically prohibit a charter school pupil from generating more than one day of attendance in a calendar day.
(18) Existing law establishes the Charter School Facility Grant Program to provide assistance with facilities rent and lease costs for pupils in charter schools, and requires the State Department of Education to allocate annually facilities grants to eligible charter schools.
This bill would revise and recast the statutes controlling the Charter School Facility Grant Program, and, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, place it under the administration of the California School Finance Authority rather than the department.
(19) Existing law sets the reimbursement a school receives for free and reduced-price meals sold or served to pupils in elementary, middle, or high schools to be $0.21, as adjusted annually for increases in cost of living, as specified.
This bill would set the reimbursement amount to $0.2229 per meal, and, for meals served in child care centers and homes, to $0.1660 per meal.
(20) The existing Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 effectuates the intent of the Legislature to implement the terms of the proposed settlement agreement of a specified legal action, to provide for the discharge of the minimum state educational funding requirement, to improve the quality of academic instruction and the level of pupil achievement in schools whose pupils have high levels of poverty and complex educational needs, to develop exemplary school district and school practices that will create working conditions and classroom learning environments that will attract and retain well qualified teachers, administrators, and other staff, and to focus school resources solely on instructional improvement and pupil services. The act appropriates specified funds for these purposes.
This bill would adjust certain calculations and appropriations made pursuant to these provisions.
(21) Existing law makes legislative findings and declarations that the state has continually sought to provide an appropriate and meaningful educational program in a safe and healthy environment for all children regardless of possible physical, mental, or emotionally disabling conditions and that teachers of children with special needs require training and guidance that provides positive ways for working successfully with children who have difficulties conforming to acceptable behavior patterns. Existing law provides for the implementation of a program governing the use of behavior interventions for individuals with exceptional needs.
This bill would delete the legislative finding and declaration relating to teachers of children with special needs, and add certain findings and declarations relating to behavioral interventions.
The bill would require that emergency behavioral interventions be used only to control unpredictable, spontaneous behavior that poses clear and present danger of serious physical harm to the individual with exceptional needs or others, and that cannot be prevented by a response less restrictive than the temporary application of a technique used to contain the behavior. The bill would require that emergency interventions be documented in reports, as provided, and would require specified teams to review these reports. The bill would prohibit certain types of interventions by an agency serving individuals with exceptional needs, including electric shock, the release of toxic or noxious sprays or mists, or locked seclusion, except when seclusion is used as specified.
The bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to repeal regulations regarding the use of behavioral interventions that are no longer supported by statute, as specified.
(22) Existing law provides for the calculation of apportionments to fund the provision of special education instruction and services for pupils who qualify for these programs.
This bill would make numerous adjustments in the calculations of apportionments related to the funding for special education.
(23) Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to review existing tests that assess the English language development of pupils whose primary language is a language other than English. Existing law requires pupils in kindergarten and grade 1 to be assessed in English listening and speaking, and, once an assessment is developed, early literacy skills. Existing law requires an early literacy assessment to be administered for a period of 3 years or until July 1, 2012, whichever occurs first, and requires the State Department of Education to report to the Legislature, no later than January 1, 2013, on early literacy assessment results.
The bill would instead require the early literacy assessment to be administered for 4 years or until July 1, 2014, and would require the department to submit the report on early literacy assessments results for the first 3 administered assessments no later than June 30, 2013.
(24) Existing law requires the California State University and each community college district, and requests the University of California, with respect to each campus in their respective jurisdictions that administers a priority enrollment system, to grant priority registration for enrollment to a foster youth or former foster youth, as defined.
This bill would require each community college district that administers a priority enrollment system to grant priority registration for enrollment to any student who is a recipient of aid under the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids program. By requiring additional students to receive priority registration at community college districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(25) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law, for the 2009–10 to 2014–15 fiscal years, inclusive, authorizes a community college district to use funds apportioned to the community college district for certain programs, including, among other programs, apprenticeship and matriculation programs, for purposes of a prescribed list of programs contained in the Budget Act of 2009.
This bill would remove the authorization for a community college district to use funds appropriated for apprenticeship and matriculation for purposes of the prescribed list of programs contained in the Budget Act of 2009.
(26) Existing law creates in the State Treasury the Community College Fund for Instructional Improvement, which consists of a revolving loan program and a direct grant program to support alternative educational programs and services for California Community Colleges, as specified.
This bill would repeal those provisions.
(27) Existing law specifies noncredit courses and classes in the various campuses of the California Community Colleges that are eligible for state funding.
This bill would require the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the State Department of Education, pursuant to funding made available in the annual Budget Act, to jointly provide 2-year planning and implementation grants to regional consortia of community college districts and school districts for the purpose of developing regional plans for adult education, as specified. The bill would require the chancellor and the department to submit a joint report relating to the program to the Legislature and the Governor on or before March 1, 2014.
(28) Under the California Constitution, whenever the Legislature or a state agency mandates a new program or higher level of service on any local government, including a school district and a community college district, the state is required to provide a subvention of funds to reimburse the local government, with specified exceptions. Existing law provides that, under certain conditions, a school district or community college district is not required to implement or give effect to certain statutes, or portions of statutes, determined to mandate a new program or higher level of service.
This bill would expand the list of programs that a school district or community college district would not have to implement under those conditions.
(29) Existing law, commencing with the 2012–13 fiscal year, requires certain funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act for reimbursement of the cost of a new program or increased level of service of an existing program mandated by statute or executive order to be available as a block grant to school districts, charter schools, county offices of education, and community college districts, to support specified state-mandated local programs. Existing law provides that a school district, charter school, county office of education, or community college district that submits a letter of intent to the Superintendent of Public Instruction or the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, as appropriate, and receives this block grant funding is not eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement for those specified mandated programs for the fiscal year for which the block grant funding is received.
This bill would prescribe procedures and requirements for school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, and community college districts that elect to receive block grant funding for designated mandated programs. The bill would revise the list of specified state-mandated local programs that are subject to these provisions that authorize block grant funding in lieu of program-specific reimbursement.
(30) Existing law appropriates a sum of up to $29,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for apportionment to the Inglewood Unified School District for the purpose of an emergency loan. Existing law requires the Inglewood Unified School District to enter into bank financing with the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank upon terms the bank, in its discretion, deems necessary or appropriate for purposes of financing or refinancing the emergency apportionment. Existing law authorizes the school district to augment the emergency loan with an additional $26,000,000 of bank financing, arranged as specified.
This bill would repeal the provisions requiring the Inglewood Unified School District to enter into bank financing or refinancing of the emergency apportionment and authorizing the school district to augment the emergency loan. The bill would instead authorize the Inglewood Unified School District, through the State Department of Education, to request cashflow loans from the General Fund for a total of $55,000,000. The bill would require the Controller, upon order of the Director of Finance, to draw warrants against General Fund cash to the Inglewood Unified School District once a loan is approved by the Director of Finance, thereby making an appropriation. The bill would specify conditions to be followed by the school district in receiving the funds and repaying the loan. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Inglewood Unified School District.
(31) This bill would provide that, of the amount allocated in a specified schedule of the Budget Act of 2011, $8,954,000 would be provided to fully fund maintenance of effort in the special education program in designated fiscal years.
(32) This bill would appropriate $1,250,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for transfer to Section A of the State School Fund to support the integration of academic content standards in instruction, as specified. The bill would require the Superintendent to apportion these funds to school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, and the state special schools using an equal rate per pupil based on prior year enrollment. The bill would require the school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, or state special schools receiving these funds to use them for certain purposes, including professional development of teachers, administrators, and paraprofessional educators or other classified employees involved in the direct instruction of pupils, as specified. The bill would require, as a condition of receiving funds apportioned pursuant to the bill, a school district, county office of education, charter school, or state special school to adopt a plan delineating how the funds shall be spent and to report detailed expenditure information to the State Department of Education on or before July 1, 2015, as specified. The bill would require the department to provide a summary of the expenditure information provided to it to the appropriate budget subcommittees and policy committees of the Legislature and to the Department of Finance on or before January 1, 2016.
(33) This bill would provide for the expenditure of funds appropriated by the Budget Act of 2013 for the establishment of the California Career Pathways Trust. The bill would require these funds to be apportioned, as specified, to school districts, county superintendents of schools, charter schools, and community college districts as competitive grants to be available for expenditure in the 2013–14 to 2015–16 fiscal years, inclusive. The bill would require the Superintendent to consult with the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and organizations representing businesses in considering grant applications pursuant to those provisions. The bill would require recipients of grants and the Superintendent to report specified outcome measures to the Department of Finance and to the relevant policy and fiscal committees of the Legislature no later than December 1, 2016.
(34) This bill would require amounts to be determined by the Director of Finance to be appropriated from the General Fund to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, on or before June 30, 2013, and on or before June 30, 2014, in the event that specified revenues distributed to community colleges are less than estimated amounts reflected in the Budget Acts of 2012 and 2013, respectively.
(35) This bill would require that an amount to be determined by the Director of Finance would be appropriated, on or before June 30, 2014, from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for specified special education programs.
(36) This bill would require that the funds appropriated pursuant to designated items of the Budget Act of 2013 be encumbered by July 31, 2014, thus extending the encumbrance authority connected with those items by one month. The bill would state that this extension is provided due to the effect of the deferral of the June 2014 principal apportionment on those budget items.
(37) This bill would make conforming changes, correct cross-references, and make other nonsubstantive changes.
(38) 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.
(39) Funds appropriated by this bill would be applied toward the minimum funding requirements for school districts and community college districts imposed by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.
(40) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.

SEC. 10.

 Section 8263 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8263.
 (a) The Superintendent shall adopt rules and regulations on eligibility, enrollment, and priority of services needed to implement this chapter. In order to be eligible for federal and state subsidized child development services, families shall meet at least one requirement in each of the following areas:
(1) A family is (A) a current aid recipient, (B) income eligible, (C) homeless, or (D) one whose children are recipients of protective services, or whose children have been identified as being abused, neglected, or exploited, or at risk of being abused, neglected, or exploited.
(2) A family needs the child care services (A) because the child is identified by a legal, medical, or social services agency, or emergency shelter as (i) a recipient of protective services or (ii) being neglected, abused, or exploited, or at risk of neglect, abuse, or exploitation, or (B) because the parents are (i) engaged in vocational training leading directly to a recognized trade, paraprofession, or profession, (ii) employed or seeking employment, (iii) seeking permanent housing for family stability, or (iv) incapacitated.
(b) Except as provided in Article 15.5 (commencing with Section 8350), priority for federal and state subsidized child development services is as follows:
(1) (A) First priority shall be given to neglected or abused children who are recipients of child protective services, or children who are at risk of being neglected or abused, upon written referral from a legal, medical, or social services agency. If an agency is unable to enroll a child in the first priority category, the agency shall refer the family to local resource and referral services to locate services for the child.
(B) A family who is receiving child care on the basis of being a child at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, as defined in subdivision (k) of Section 8208, is eligible to receive services pursuant to subparagraph (A) for up to three months, unless the family becomes eligible pursuant to subparagraph (C).
(C) A family may receive child care services for up to 12 months on the basis of a certification by the county child welfare agency that child care services continue to be necessary or, if the child is receiving child protective services during that period of time, and the family requires child care and remains otherwise eligible. This time limit does not apply if the family’s child care referral is recertified by the county child welfare agency.
(2) Second priority shall be given equally to eligible families, regardless of the number of parents in the home, who are income eligible. Within this priority, families with the lowest gross monthly income in relation to family size, as determined by a schedule adopted by the Superintendent, shall be admitted first. If two or more families are in the same priority in relation to income, the family that has a child with exceptional needs shall be admitted first. If there is no family of the same priority with a child with exceptional needs, the same priority family that has been on the waiting list for the longest time shall be admitted first. For purposes of determining order of admission, the grants of public assistance recipients shall be counted as income.
(3) The Superintendent shall set criteria for, and may grant specific waivers of, the priorities established in this subdivision for agencies that wish to serve specific populations, including children with exceptional needs or children of prisoners. These new waivers shall not include proposals to avoid appropriate fee schedules or admit ineligible families, but may include proposals to accept members of special populations in other than strict income order, as long as appropriate fees are paid.
(c) Notwithstanding any other law, in order to promote continuity of services, a family enrolled in a state or federally funded child care and development program whose services would otherwise be terminated because the family no longer meets the program income, eligibility, or need criteria may continue to receive child development services in another state or federally funded child care and development program if the contractor is able to transfer the family’s enrollment to another program for which the family is eligible before the date of termination of services or to exchange the family’s existing enrollment with the enrollment of a family in another program, provided that both families satisfy the eligibility requirements for the program in which they are being enrolled. The transfer of enrollment may be to another program within the same administrative agency or to another agency that administers state or federally funded child care and development programs.
(d) In order to promote continuity of services, the Superintendent may extend the 60-working-day period specified in subdivision (a) of Section 18086.5 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations for an additional 60 working days if he or she determines that opportunities for employment have diminished to the degree that one or both parents cannot reasonably be expected to find employment within 60 working days and granting the extension is in the public interest. The scope of extensions granted pursuant to this subdivision shall be limited to the necessary geographic areas and affected persons, which shall be described in the Superintendent’s order granting the extension. It is the intent of the Legislature that extensions granted pursuant to this subdivision improve services in areas with high unemployment rates and areas with disproportionately high numbers of seasonal agricultural jobs.
(e) A physical examination and evaluation, including age-appropriate immunization, shall be required before, or within six weeks of, enrollment. A standard, rule, or regulation shall not require medical examination or immunization for admission to a child care and development program of a child whose parent or guardian files a letter with the governing board of the child care and development program stating that the medical examination or immunization is contrary to his or her religious beliefs, or provide for the exclusion of a child from the program because of a parent or guardian having filed the letter. However, if there is good cause to believe that a child is suffering from a recognized contagious or infectious disease, the child shall be temporarily excluded from the program until the governing board of the child care and development program is satisfied that the child is not suffering from that contagious or infectious disease.
(f) Regulations formulated and promulgated pursuant to this section shall include the recommendations of the State Department of Health Care Services relative to health care screening and the provision of health care services. The Superintendent shall seek the advice and assistance of these health authorities in situations where service under this chapter includes or requires care of children who are ill or children with exceptional needs.
(g) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines for the collection of employer-sponsored child care benefit payments from a parent whose child receives subsidized child care and development services. These guidelines shall provide for the collection of the full amount of the benefit payment, but not to exceed the actual cost of child care and development services provided, notwithstanding the applicable fee based on the fee schedule.
(h) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines according to which the director or a duly authorized representative of the child care and development program will certify children as eligible for state reimbursement pursuant to this section.
(i) Public funds shall not be paid directly or indirectly to an agency that does not pay at least the minimum wage to each of its employees.

The Superintendent shall first submit the adjusted fee schedule to the Department of Finance for approval.
(e) The income of a recipient of federal supplemental security income benefits pursuant to Title XVI of the federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C.

However, the department shall adjust the family fee schedule for families that are newly eligible to receive or will continue to receive services under the new income eligibility limits. The family fees shall not exceed 10 percent of the family’s monthly income.
(b) Notwithstanding any other law, the family fee schedule that was in effect for the 2007–08, 2008–09, 2009–10, and 2010–11 fiscal years shall be adjusted to reflect the income eligibility limits specified in subdivision (b) of Section 8263.1 for the 2011–12 fiscal year, and shall retain a flat fee per family. The revised family fee schedule shall begin at income levels at which families currently begin paying fees. The revised family fees shall not exceed 10 percent of the family’s monthly income. The department shall first submit the adjusted family fee schedule to the Department of Finance for approval in order for the adjusted family fee schedule to be implemented by July 1, 2011.

(d) Notwithstanding any other law, the family fee schedule that was in effect for the 2012–13 fiscal year pursuant to subdivision (c) shall remain in effect for the 2013–14 fiscal year until the first day of a month that is at least 60 days after the new family fee schedule developed pursuant to Section 8273 has been approved by the Department of Finance and adopted.

(2) If the charter school purchased real property pursuant to this section and fails to comply with paragraph (1), or otherwise desires to dispose of the real property, all of the following shall apply:
(A) The charter school shall immediately offer that real property for sale to the school district that previously owned the property. The charter school shall comply, in that regard, with all requirements under this section that would otherwise apply to a school district.
(B) If the school district does not desire to purchase that real property from the charter school, the school district shall furnish a list of charter schools that have requested notification of surplus property pursuant to subdivision (a). The charter school that owns the real property shall offer that real property for sale to the charter schools on this list and comply with all requirements under this section that would otherwise apply to a school district. In the event the charter school selling property receives more than one offer, the charter school may determine to which charter school it will sell the property. The charter school purchasing the real property shall comply with all provisions of this section.
(C) If that real property remains unsold pursuant to subparagraph (A) or (B), the charter school selling the real property shall offer that property for sale pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 17485). The charter school shall comply with all requirements under that article that would otherwise apply to a school district, except that a sale price computed under subdivision (a) of Section 17491 shall be based upon the cost of acquisition incurred by the school district that sold the property pursuant to this subdivision, rather than that incurred by the charter school.
(D) If all or part of the real property remains unsold pursuant to subparagraph (C), the charter school selling that real property shall dispose of the remaining property pursuant to subdivisions (c), (d), (e), and (f) of Section 17464. References in Section 17464 to a school district shall mean the charter school selling the real property.
(3) In the event, alternatively, of a lease of real property pursuant to this subdivision, the failure by the charter school to comply with paragraph (1) shall constitute a breach of the lease, entitling the school district to immediate possession of the real property, in addition to any damages to which the school district may be entitled under the lease agreement.
(4) The school district, and each of the entities authorized to receive offers of sale pursuant to this article or Article 5 (commencing with Section 17485), has standing to enforce the conditions set forth in this subdivision, and shall be entitled to the payment of reasonable attorney’s fees incurred as a prevailing party in any action or proceeding brought to enforce any of those conditions.
(b) A school district seeking to sell or lease real property designed to provide direct instruction or instructional support it deems to be surplus property shall provide a written offer to any charter school that, at the time of the offer, has projections of at least 80 units of in-district average daily attendance for the following fiscal year, and has submitted a written request to the school district to be notified of surplus property offered for sale or lease by the school district. A charter school desiring to purchase or lease the property shall, within 60 days after a written offer is received, notify the school district of its intent to purchase or lease the property. In the event more than one charter school notifies the school district of their intent to purchase or lease the property, the governing board of the school district may determine to which charter school to sell or lease the property.
(c) The price at which property described in this section is sold pursuant to this section shall not exceed the school district’s cost of acquisition, adjusted by a factor equivalent to the percentage increase or decrease in the cost of living from the date of purchase to the year in which the offer of sale is made, plus the cost of any school facilities construction undertaken on the property by the school district since its acquisition of the land, adjusted by a factor equivalent to the increase or decrease in the statewide cost index for class B construction, as annually determined by the State Allocation Board pursuant to Section 17072.10, from the year the improvement is completed to the year in which the sale is made. In the event a statewide cost index for class B construction is not available, the school district shall use a factor equal to the average statewide cost index for class B construction for the preceding 10 calendar years. In no event shall the price be less than 25 percent of the fair market value of the property described in this section or less than the amount necessary to retire the share of local bonded indebtedness plus the amount of the original cost of the approved state aid applications on the property. The percentage of annual increase or decrease in the cost of living shall be the amount shown for January 1 of the applicable year by the then current Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumers Price Index for the area in which the schoolsite is located.
(d) Land that is leased pursuant to this section shall be leased at an annual rate of not more than 5 percent of the maximum sales price determined pursuant to subdivision (c), adjusted annually by a factor equivalent to the percentage increase or decrease in the cost of living for the immediately preceding year. The percentage of annual increase or decrease in the cost of living shall be the amount shown for January 1 of the applicable year by the then current Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumers Price Index for the area in which the schoolsite is located.
(e) The sale or lease of the real property of a school district, as authorized under subdivision (a), shall not occur until the school district advisory committee has held hearings pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 17390.
(f) This section shall only apply to real property identified by a school district as surplus property after July 1, 2012. A school district selling or leasing surplus property is not required to offer that property to a charter school pursuant to this section on or after July 1, 2016.
(g) The construction of a school building, as defined in Section 17368, located on real property purchased by a charter school pursuant to this section shall comply with the design and construction requirements pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 17280) and Article 6 (commencing with Section 17365). The reconstruction or alteration of, or an addition to, a school building, as defined in Section 17368, located on real property purchased by a charter school pursuant to this section is required to comply with the design and construction requirements pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 17280) and Article 6 (commencing with Section 17365) only if the building complied with those sections on the date the real property was purchased by the charter school.
(h) A charter school selling real property obtained pursuant to this section shall use the proceeds only for capital outlay, maintenance, and other facility-related costs.

 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, a school district may deposit the proceeds from the sale of surplus real property, together with any personal property located on the property, purchased entirely with local funds, into the general fund of the school district and may use the proceeds for any one-time general fund purpose. If the purchase of the property was made using the proceeds of a local general obligation bond or revenue derived from developer fees, the amount of the proceeds of the transaction that may be deposited into the general fund of the school district may not exceed the percentage computed by the difference between the purchase price of the property and the proceeds from the transaction, divided by the amount of the proceeds of the transaction. For purposes of this section, proceeds of the transaction means either of the following, as appropriate:
(1) The amount realized from the sale of property after reasonable expenses related to the sale.
(2) For a transaction that does not result in a lump-sum payment of the proceeds of the transaction, the proceeds of the transaction shall be calculated as the net present value of the future cashflow generated by the transaction.
(b) The State Allocation Board shall reduce an apportionment of hardship assistance awarded to the particular school district pursuant to Article 8 (commencing with Section 17075.10) by an amount equal to the amount of the sale of surplus real property used for a one-time expenditure of the school district pursuant to this section.
(c) If the school district exercises the authority granted pursuant to this section, the district is ineligible for hardship funding from the State School Deferred Maintenance Fund under Section 17587 for five years after the date proceeds are deposited into the general fund pursuant to this section.
(d) Before a school district exercises the authority granted pursuant to this section, the governing board of the school district shall first submit to the State Allocation Board documents certifying the following:
(1) The school district has no major deferred maintenance requirements not covered by existing capital outlay resources.
(2) The sale of real property pursuant to this section does not violate the provisions of a local bond act.
(3) The real property is not suitable to meet projected school construction needs for the next 10 years.
(e) Before the school district exercises the authority granted pursuant to this section, the governing board of the school district at a regularly scheduled meeting shall present a plan for expending one-time resources pursuant to this section. The plan shall identify the source and use of the funds and describe the reasons why the expenditure will not result in ongoing fiscal obligations for the school district.
(f) The Office of Public School Construction shall submit an interim and a final report to the State Allocation Board and the budget, education policy, and fiscal committees of the Legislature that identifies the school districts that have exercised the authority granted by this section, the amount of proceeds involved, and the purposes for which those proceeds were used. The interim report shall be submitted by January 1, 2011, and the final report by January 1, 2015.
(g) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2016 and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2016, deletes or extends that date.

 (a) For the 1990–91 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, allocations calculated pursuant to Section 41203 shall be distributed in accordance with calculations provided in this section. Notwithstanding Section 41203, and for purposes of this section, school districts, community college districts, and direct elementary and secondary level instructional services provided by the State of California shall be regarded as separate segments of public education, and each of these three segments of public education shall be entitled to receive respective shares of the amount calculated pursuant to Section 41203 as though the calculation made pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution were to be applied separately to each segment and the base year for purposes of this calculation under paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution were based on the 1989–90 fiscal year.

(2) Revise the school district’s educational program to reflect realistic income projections, in response to the dramatic effect of the changes in fiscal policies and practices upon educational program quality and the potential for the success of all pupils.
(3) Encourage all members of the school community to accept a fair share of the burden of the school district’s fiscal recovery.
(4) Consult, for the purposes described in this subdivision, with the school district governing board, the exclusive representatives of the employees of the school district, parents, and the community.

 Section 41329.52 of the Education Code is amended to read:

41329.52.
 (a) A school district may receive a two-part financing designed to provide an advance of apportionments owed to the district from the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account.
(b) The initial emergency apportionment shall be an interim loan from the General Fund to the school district. General Fund money shall not be advanced to a school district until that district agrees to obtain a lease financing as described in subdivision (c) and the bank adopts a reimbursement resolution governing the lease financing. The interim loan shall be repaid in full, with interest, from the proceeds of the lease financing pursuant to subdivision (c) at a time mutually agreed upon between the Department of Finance and the bank. The interest rate on the interim loan shall be the rate earned by moneys in the Pooled Money Investment Account as of the date of the initial disbursement of emergency apportionments to the school district.
(c) The school district shall enter into a lease financing with the bank for the purpose of financing the emergency apportionment, including a repayment to the General Fund of the amount advanced pursuant to subdivision (b). In addition to the emergency apportionment, the lease financing may include funds necessary for reserves, capitalized interest, credit enhancements, and costs of issuance. The bank shall issue bonds for that purpose pursuant to the powers granted pursuant to the Bergeson-Peace Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank Act as set forth in Division 1 (commencing with Section 63000) of Part 6.7 of the Government Code. The term of the lease shall not exceed 20 years, except that if at the end of the lease term any rent payable is not fully paid, or if the rent payable has been abated, the term of the lease shall be extended for a period not to exceed 10 years.

 Section 41329.53 of the Education Code is amended to read:

41329.53.
 (a) As an alternative to the lease financing pursuant to Section 41329.52, a school district may receive an emergency apportionment from the General Fund designed to provide an advance of apportionments owed to the district from the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account. The emergency apportionment shall be repaid within 20 years. The calculation of the amount of the apportionment, including implied costs, and the interest rate shall be calculated pursuant to subdivision (b). Each year the Superintendent shall withhold from the apportionments to be made to the school district from the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account an amount equal to the emergency apportionment repayment that becomes due in the year.
(b) The determination by statute as to whether the emergency apportionment shall take the form of lease financing pursuant to Section 41329.52 or an emergency apportionment from the General Fund pursuant to this section shall be based upon the availability of funds within the General Fund and not on any cost differential between the two financing mechanisms. To ensure that the two alternatives are cost neutral, if the statute does not authorize a lease financing, the bank shall commission a cost study from financial advisers under contract with the bank to determine the interest rate, costs of issuance, and if it is more cost effective, credit enhancement costs likely if the financing was a lease financing rather than an emergency apportionment from the General Fund. These implied lease costs shall be included as the fixed interest rate on the repayment of the emergency apportionment to the General Fund, repayable over 20 years.

 Section 41329.55 of the Education Code is amended to read:

41329.55.
 (a) Simultaneous with the execution of the lease financing authorized pursuant to Section 41329.52, the bank shall provide to the Controller and the school district a notification of its lease financing. The notice shall include a schedule of rent payments to become due to the bank from the school district and the bond trustee. The Controller shall make the apportionment to the bond trustee of those amounts on the dates shown on the schedule. The bank may further authorize the apportionments to be used to pay or reimburse the provider of any credit enhancement of bonds and other ongoing or periodic ancillary costs of the bond financing issued by the bank in connection with this article. If the amount of rent payments vary from the schedule as a result of variable interest rates on the bonds, early redemptions, or changes in expenses, the bank shall amend or supplement the schedule accordingly.
(b) Except where financing is for a community college district, the Controller shall make the apportionment only from moneys in Section A of the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account designated for apportionment to the district and any apportionment authorized pursuant to this subdivision shall constitute a lien senior to any other apportionment or payment of State School Fund and the Education Protection Account moneys to or for that district not made pursuant to this subdivision.
(c) If financing is for the Compton Community College District, the Controller shall make the apportionment only from moneys in Section B of the State School Fund. Any apportionment authorized pursuant to this subdivision shall constitute a lien senior to any other apportionment or payment of Section B State School Fund moneys.
(d) The amount apportioned for a school district pursuant to this section is an allocation to the school district for purposes of subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution. For purposes of computing revenue limits pursuant to Section 42238 for any school district, the revenue limit for any fiscal year in which funds are apportioned for the school district pursuant to this section shall include any amounts apportioned by the Controller pursuant to subdivisions (a), (b), and (c), as well as Section 41329.57.
(e) No party, including the school district or any of its creditors, shall have any claim to the money apportioned or to be apportioned to the bond trustee by the Controller pursuant to this section.

(A) For purposes of determining the cost of the original emergency loan for the West Contra Costa Unified School District, the original interest rate is the rate established pursuant to Section 41474 of 1.532 percent.
(B) For purposes of determining the cost of the original emergency loan for the Oakland Unified School District, the original interest rate is 1.778 percent. This rate shall also apply to any disbursements of the loan pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Statutes of 2003 that are subsequent to August 23, 2004.
(C) For purposes of determining the cost of the original emergency loan for the Vallejo City Unified School District, the original interest rate is 1.5 percent. This rate shall also apply to any disbursements of the loan pursuant to Chapter 53 of the Statutes of 2004 that are subsequent to August 23, 2004.
(2) The executive director or chair of the bank shall periodically provide a schedule to the Controller and each school district of the actual amount of the difference between the cost of the lease financing compared to the cost of the original emergency loan for each school district for each year and the Controller shall issue warrants to each school district pursuant to the schedule. Payments to a school district shall occur only during the term of the loan for that district and shall be made no sooner than the corresponding payments are made to the bond trustee under the lease financing for that district.
(3) For purposes of making the computations required by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, the warrants issued pursuant to paragraph (2) are “General Fund revenues appropriated for school districts,” as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 41202 for the fiscal years in which the warrants are issued and included within the “total allocations to school districts and community college districts from General Fund proceeds of taxes appropriated pursuant to Article XIII B,” as defined in subdivision (e) of Section 41202, for the fiscal years in which the warrants are issued.

The loan to a chartering authority for a charter school, or to a charter school, pursuant to this subdivision shall not exceed two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) over the lifetime of the charter school. A charter school may receive money obtained from multiple loans made directly to the charter school or to the school’s chartering authority from the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund, as long as the total amount received from the fund over the lifetime of the charter school does not exceed two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000). This subdivision does not apply to a charter school that obtains renewal of a charter pursuant to Section 47607.

Repayment of the full amount loaned to the chartering authority shall be deducted by the Controller in equal annual amounts over a number of years agreed upon between the loan recipient and the California School Finance Authority, not to exceed five years for any loan.
(g) (1) Notwithstanding any other law, a loan may be made directly to a charter school pursuant to this section only in the case of a charter school that is incorporated.

Before requesting any transfer of funds from the Charter School Security Fund, the California School Finance Authority shall make all reasonable efforts to recover funds directly from the defaulting loan recipient. To the extent that the California School Finance Authority determines that a transfer from the Charter School Security Fund to the Charter School Revolving Loan Fund is necessary, the California School Finance Authority shall obtain approval from the Director of Finance before a transfer of funds is made.

(C) A third apportionment within 30 days of the end of each fiscal year or 30 days after receiving the data and documentation needed to compute the charter school’s total annual entitlement, whichever is later. This apportionment shall be the charter school’s total annual entitlement less any funding already apportioned to the charter school.
(D) Notwithstanding subparagraph (A), the initial apportionment in the 2013–14 fiscal year shall be made by October 15, 2013, or 105 days after enactment of the Budget Act of 2013, whichever is later.
(d) For the purposes of this section:
(1) The California School Finance Authority shall use prior year data on pupil eligibility for free or reduced-price meals for the charter schoolsite and prior year rent or lease costs provided by charter schools to determine eligibility for the grant program until current year data and actual rent or lease costs become known or until June 30 of each fiscal year.
(2) If prior year rent or lease costs are unavailable, and the current year lease and rent costs are not immediately available, the California School Finance Authority shall use rent or lease cost estimates provided by the charter school.
(3) The California School Finance Authority shall verify that the grant amount awarded to each charter school is consistent with eligibility requirements as specified in this section and in regulations adopted by the authority. If it is determined by the California School Finance Authority that a charter school did not receive the proper grant award amount, either the charter school shall transfer funds back to the authority as necessary within 60 days of being notified by the authority, or the authority shall provide an additional apportionment as necessary to the charter school within 60 days of notifying the charter school, subject to the availability of funds.

The IEP team shall document the reasons for not conducting the functional behavioral assessment, not developing an interim plan, or both.
(h) If a behavioral emergency report is written regarding an individual with exceptional needs who has a positive behavioral intervention plan, an incident involving a previously unseen serious behavior problem, or where a previously designed intervention is ineffective, shall be referred to the IEP team to review and determine if the incident constitutes a need to modify the positive behavioral intervention plan.

 Section 63049.67 of the Government Code is amended to read:

63049.67.
 (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this division, a financing of emergency apportionments upon the request of a school district pursuant to Article 2.7 (commencing with Section 41329.50) of Chapter 3 of Part 24 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Education Code, is deemed to be in the public interest and eligible for financing by the bank. Article 3 (commencing with Section 63040), Article 4 (commencing with Section 63042), and Article 5 (commencing with Section 63043) do not apply to the financing provided by the bank in connection with an emergency apportionment.
(b) The bank may issue bonds pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 63070) and provide the proceeds to a school district pursuant to a lease agreement. The proceeds may be used as an emergency apportionment, to reimburse the interim emergency apportionment from the General Fund authorized pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 41329.52 of the Education Code, or to refund bonds previously issued under this section. Bond proceeds may also be used to fund necessary reserves, capitalized interest, credit enhancement costs, and costs of issuance.
(c) Bonds issued under this article are not deemed to constitute a debt or liability of the state or of any political subdivision of the state, other than a limited obligation of the bank, or a pledge of the faith and credit of the state or of any political subdivision. All bonds issued under this article shall contain on the face of the bonds a statement to the same effect.
(d) Any fund or account established in connection with the bonds shall be established outside of the centralized treasury system. Notwithstanding any other law, the bank shall select the financing team and the trustee for the bonds, and the trustee shall be a corporation or banking association authorized to exercise corporate trust powers.
(e) Pursuant to Section 41329.55 of the Education Code, a school district other than the Compton Community College District shall instruct the Controller to repay the lease from moneys in the State School Fund and the Education Protection Account designated for apportionment to the school district. Pursuant to Section 41329.55 of the Education Code, if the school district is the Compton Community College District, the Controller shall be instructed to repay the lease from moneys in Section B of the State School Fund. Any amounts necessary to make this repayment shall be drawn from the total statewide funding available for community college apportionment consisting of funds in Section B of the State School Fund. Thereafter the Controller shall transfer to Section B of the State School Fund, either in a single or multiple transfers, an amount equal to the total repayment, which amount shall be transferred from the amount designated for apportionment to the Compton Community College District from the State School Fund. If these transfers from the district prove inadequate to repay any repayments for any reason, the Compton Community College District is required to use any revenue sources available to it for transfer and repayment purposes.
(f) Notwithstanding any other law, as long as any bonds issued pursuant to this section are outstanding, the following requirements apply:
(1) The school district for which the bonds were issued is not eligible to be a debtor in a case under Chapter 9 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, as it may be amended from time to time, and no governmental officer or organization is or may be empowered to authorize the school district to be a debtor under that chapter.
(2) It is the intent of the Legislature that the Legislature should not in the future abolish the Compton Community College District or take any action that would prevent the Compton Community College from entering into or performing binding agreements or invalidate any prior binding agreements of the Compton Community College District, where invalidation may have a material adverse effect on the bonds issued pursuant to this section.
(3) The Compton Community College District shall not be reorganized or merged with another community college district unless all of the following apply:
(A) The successor district becomes by operation of law the owner of all property previously owned by the Compton Community College District.
(B) Any agreement entered into by the Compton Community College District in connection with bonds issued pursuant to this section are assumed by the successor district.
(C) The apportionment authorized by subdivision (e) remains in effect.
(D) Receipt by the bank of an opinion of bond counsel that the bonds issued for the Compton Community College District will remain tax exempt following the reorganization or merger.
(g) Nothing in this section limits the authority of the Legislature to abolish the Compton Community College District when bonds issued for that district are no longer outstanding. Further, the Legislature may provide for the redemption or defeasance of the bonds at any time so that no bonds are outstanding. If the Legislature provides for the redemption or defeasance of the bonds issued for the Compton Community College District in order to abolish that district, it is the intent of the Legislature that the funds required for the redemption or defeasance should be appropriated from Section B of the State School Fund.
(h) The bank may enter into contracts or agreements with banks, insurers, or other financial institutions or parties that it determines are necessary or desirable to improve the security and marketability of, or to manage interest rates or other risks associated with, the bonds issued pursuant to this section. The bank may pledge apportionments made by the Controller directly to the bond trustee pursuant to Section 41329.55 of the Education Code as security for repayment of any obligation owed to a bank, insurer, or other financial institution pursuant to this subdivision.

(e) The Department of Finance shall notify the Legislature within 15 days of authorizing a General Fund cashflow loan pursuant to this section.
(f) A cashflow loan from the General Fund authorized by this section does not constitute budgetary expenditures. A cashflow loan, and the repayment of a cashflow loan, made under this section shall not affect the General Fund reserve.
