LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 104, Committee on Budget. Education finance: education omnibus trailer bill.
(1) Existing law provides supplemental funding to qualifying California state preschool classrooms, and requires a part-day preschool program to provide parenting education and to provide staff development for teachers in participating classrooms as a condition of receiving funds.
This bill would include within the meaning of parenting education for these purposes improving parental knowledge of local resources for the identification of and services for developmental disabilities, and would include as part of staff development the development of improved behavioral strategies and the provision of interventions for young children to improve kindergarten readiness.
(2) Existing law provides for income eligibility standards for families to receive child care and development services. Existing law provides that “income eligible,” for 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 sets the income eligibility limits for the 2014–15 fiscal year at 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007–08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.
This bill would set the income eligibility limits for the 2015–16 fiscal year at 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007–08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.
(3) Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to implement a plan that establishes reasonable child care standards and assigned reimbursement rates, and sets the standard reimbursement rate at $9,024.75 per unit of average daily enrollment for a 250-day year. Commencing with the 2015–16 fiscal year, existing law requires that rate to be increased by the cost-of-living adjustment granted by the Legislature annually.
This bill would set the standard reimbursement rate at $9,572.50, and the full-day state preschool reimbursement rate at $9,632.50, per unit of average daily enrollment for a 250-day year and, commencing with the 2016–17 fiscal year, would require that rate to be increased by the cost-of-living adjustment granted by the Legislature annually.
(4) Existing law applies various adjustment factors to specified programs, including programs for infants and toddlers, for which reimbursement rates are at or below the standard reimbursement rate, as provided.
This bill would provide that these adjustment factors shall apply to those full-day state preschool programs for which assigned reimbursement rates are above the full-day state preschool reimbursement rate.
(5) 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 authorizes the City and County of San Francisco, until July 1, 2016, and as a pilot project, to develop and implement an individualized county child care subsidy plan, requires the city and county, on or before December 31, 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, 2018, and provides for the repeal of those provisions on January 1, 2019.
This bill would authorize the City and County of San Francisco to implement the individualized county child care subsidy plan indefinitely and would make conforming changes. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations regarding the need for special legislation for the City and County of San Francisco.
(6) Existing law provides that the cost of child care services provided for CalWORKs recipients is governed by regional market rates, and establishes regional market rate ceilings for each region at the greater of either the 85th percentile of the 2009 regional market rate survey for that region, reduced by 10.11%, or the 85th percentile of the 2005 regional market rate survey for that region.
This bill would, commencing October 1, 2015, increase the regional market rate ceilings established for each region by 4.5%. The bill would provide that, effective October 1, 2015, reimbursement to license-exempt child care providers shall not exceed 65% of the established regional market rate. The bill would require, commencing October 1, 2015, the regional market rate ceilings for all counties to be increased by 4.5%.
(7) Existing law establishes the Educational Telecommunication Fund, moneys in which are available for expenditure upon appropriation for specified purposes relating to establishing telecommunication standards for state, county, and local educational agencies. Existing law provides for the deposit in the fund of the amount of any offset made to certain apportionments upon a specified finding, and limits the maximum amount that may be annually deposited in the fund from the offset to $15,000,000.
This bill would repeal the provisions relating to the deposit of moneys into the fund.
(8) Existing law, the Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998, 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. The act requires the board to require applicant school districts that receive funding under the act to establish a restricted account within the general fund of the school district for the exclusive purpose of providing moneys for ongoing and major maintenance of school buildings, and to agree to deposit into that account in each fiscal year for 20 years after receipt of funds under the act a minimum amount equal to or greater than 3% of the total general fund expenditures of the applicant school district for that fiscal year.
This bill would require the board to require applicant school districts to instead deposit into the account, for the 2015–16 and 2016–17 fiscal years, a minimum amount that is the lesser of 3% of the total general fund expenditures for that fiscal year or the amount that the school district deposited into the account in the 2014–15 fiscal year. For the 2017–18 to 2019–20 fiscal years, inclusive, the bill would require the board to require applicant school districts to instead deposit into the account a minimum amount that is the greater of (1) the lesser of 3% of the total general fund expenditures for that fiscal year or the amount that the school district deposited into the account in the 2014–15 fiscal year or (2) 2% of the total general fund expenditures of the applicant school district for that fiscal year. The bill would make the existing minimum deposit requirement applicable to school districts that received an amount equal to or greater than 10% of state school facilities funds in specified prior years only under certain circumstances. The bill would specify that funds in the account may be used for drought mitigation purposes related to the implementation of a certain executive order of the Governor. The bill would also delete obsolete provisions.
(9) Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution sets forth a formula for computing the minimum amount of revenues that the state is required to appropriate for the support of school districts and community college districts for each fiscal year. Existing law provides that “General Fund revenues appropriated for school districts and community college districts, respectively” and “moneys to be applied by the state for the support of school districts and community college districts,” for purposes of that computation, include funds appropriated for part-day California state preschool programs and the After School Education and Safety Program.
This bill would provide that those funds appropriated to local educational agencies to create a full day of care for children participating in the California state preschool program are also “General Fund revenues appropriated for school districts and community college districts, respectively” and “moneys to be applied by the state for the support of school districts and community college districts” for purposes of that computation.
(10) 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 2014–15 fiscal years, inclusive.
This bill would also make that provision inapplicable to the 2015–16 fiscal year.
(11) Existing law declares the minimum state education funding obligation for school districts and community college districts for the 2006–07 fiscal year is $55,251,266,000, with an outstanding balance of $211,533,000. Existing law, commencing with the 2015–16 fiscal year, requires the Legislature to appropriate the outstanding balance, as specified.
This bill would appropriate $256,000,000 from the General Fund to the Controller for allocation to school districts and community college districts for the purpose of offsetting the entire 2006–07 outstanding balance referenced above, and offsetting the 2009–10 outstanding balance of the minimum funding obligation to school districts and community college districts, as specified.
(12) Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district maintaining secondary schools to establish and maintain classes for adults, as specified. Existing law authorizes specified classes and courses to be offered by school districts and county superintendents of schools for apportionment purposes from the adult education fund, including, among other subject matters, classes and courses for adult education programs for apprentices.
This bill would instead authorize for purposes of apportionments from the adult education fund programs offering pre-apprenticeship training activities conducted in coordination with one or more apprenticeship programs approved by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards for the occupation and geographic area.
(13) Existing law requires funding pursuant to the local control funding formula to include, in addition to a base grant, supplemental and concentration grant add-ons that are based on the total percentage of English language learners, pupils eligible for free or reduced-price meals, and foster youth served by county superintendents of schools, school districts, and charter schools. Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to subtract certain amounts, including amounts from certain redevelopment revenues that are paid to these local educational agencies, from their base grants.
Existing law provides, in calculating each community college district’s revenue level for each fiscal year, that the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges shall subtract, from the total revenues otherwise owed to the community college districts, certain amounts, including certain redevelopment-related revenues that are allocated to community college districts and, for purposes of community college district revenue levels, that are considered property tax revenues.
This bill would revise the provisions of the local control funding formula for county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools, and the provisions for a community college district’s revenue levels, that address the treatment of these redevelopment funds, as specified, including authorizing the expenditure of a portion of those funds for land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance.
(14) Existing law establishes a public school financing system that requires state funding for county superintendents of schools, school districts, and charter schools to be calculated pursuant to a local control funding formula, and requires funds received for specified pupil transportation programs to be included as part of the formula.
This bill would revise specified calculations for home-to-school transportation joint powers agencies that received certain apportionments in the 2012–13 fiscal year by authorizing the joint powers agencies to identify and transfer the entitlement to that funding, commencing with the 2015–16 fiscal year, to member local educational agencies, and would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to add those amounts to the member local educational agencies’ local control funding formula allocations, as specified.
(15) This bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to reduce any home-to-school transportation funding of the county local control funding formula allocated to the Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools by $2,785,448, and would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to increase the home-to-school transportation funding of the school district local control funding formula for specified school districts in specified amounts.
(16) Existing law provides for the levying of fees by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the issuance and renewal of teaching and service credentials, not to exceed $70.
This bill would increase the maximum amount of the fee from $70 to $100.
(17) Existing law requires the California School Finance Authority to administer the Charter School Facility Grant Program, and provides that the grant program is intended to provide assistance with facilities rent and lease costs for pupils in charter schools. Existing law provides that a charter schoolsite is eligible for funding under this provision if the charter schoolsite is located in the attendance area of a public elementary school in which 70% or more of the pupil enrollment is eligible for free or reduced-price meals, or if 70% of the pupil enrollment at the charter schoolsite is eligible for free or reduced-price meals, as measured using prior year data. Existing law further specifies that the grant program is to be expanded by reducing the 70% threshold if funds remain after eligible charter schools meeting the 70% requirement are funded.
This bill would reduce the eligibility threshold to participate in the grant program from 70% to 55%. The bill would provide that a new charter school that was not operational in the prior year shall be eligible in the current year if it meets the free or reduced-price meal eligibility requirements based on current year data. The bill would delete the provisions providing for the expansion of the program specified above.
(18) Existing law authorizes a school district or charter school to maintain a transitional kindergarten program, and, as a condition of receipt of apportionments for pupils in a transitional kindergarten program, requires the school district or charter school to comply with specified minimum age requirements for pupils participating in the transitional kindergarten program, including, for the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter, that the school district or charter school admit a child who will have his or her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2. Existing law also specifies that a transitional kindergarten program shall not be construed as a new program or higher level of service.
Existing law requires funding pursuant to the local control funding formula to include, in addition to a base grant, supplemental and concentration grant add-ons that are based on the percentage of certain categories of pupils, known as unduplicated pupils, served by the county superintendent of schools, school district, or charter school. Existing law includes among unduplicated pupils, a pupil who is classified as an English learner, eligible for a free or reduced-price meal, or a foster youth, as defined, and requires county superintendents of schools, school districts, and charter schools to submit and report data relating to these pupils.
This bill would, for the 2015–16 school year and each school year thereafter, authorize a school district or charter school, at any time during the school year, to admit a child to a transitional kindergarten program who will have his or her 5th birthday after December 2 but during that same school year if certain conditions are met. The bill would prohibit a pupil admitted to a transitional kindergarten program pursuant to that provision from generating average daily attendance, or being included in the enrollment or unduplicated pupil count pursuant to the local control funding formula, until the pupil has attained his or her 5th birthday.
(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 at $0.2248 per meal, and for meals served in child care centers and homes, at $0.1674 per meal.
This bill would increase the reimbursement rate for elementary, middle, and high schools to $0.2271 per meal, and, for meals served in child care centers and homes, would increase the reimbursement rate to $0.1691 per meal.
(20) Existing law requires the ratio of average daily attendance for independent study pupils 18 years of age or less to full-time equivalent certificated employees responsible for independent study, for the applicable grade span, as specified, not to exceed a specified ratio.
This bill would eliminate grade spans as factors in the computation of the ratios.
(21) Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction, with the approval of the State Board of Education, to develop an Academic Performance Index, as specified, to measure the performance of schools and school districts. Existing law requires schools and school districts to demonstrate comparable improvement in academic achievement as measured by the Academic Performance Index by all numerically significant pupil subgroups at the school or school district, including ethnic subgroups, socioeconomically disadvantaged pupils, English learners, pupils with disabilities, and foster youth.
This bill would add homeless youth to the list of pupils subgroups for which, if numerically significant, comparable improvement must be demonstrated, and would specify that, for a subgroup of pupils who are homeless youth, a numerically significant pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 15 pupils. To the extent that this bill would impose new duties on schools and school districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.
(22) Existing law requires the State Board of Education, on or before October 1, 2015, to adopt evaluation rubrics to, among other things, assist a school district, county office of education, or charter school in evaluating its strengths, weaknesses, and areas that require improvement.
This bill would instead require the state board to adopt evaluation rubrics on or before October 1, 2016.
(23) Existing law prohibits the expenditure of revenue derived from the average daily attendance of adult education programs for other than adult education purposes.
This bill would authorize the expenditure of revenue derived from average daily attendance pursuant to the local control funding formula for adult education programs.
(24) Existing law requires the State Department of Education to administer the California Career Pathways Trust as a competitive grant program for kindergarten and grades 1 to 14, inclusive.
This bill would specify that funds appropriated in Item 6110-280-0001 of the Budget Act of 2014 for the Career Technical Education Pathways Grant Program shall be available for expenditure in the 2014–15 fiscal year to the 2016–17 fiscal year, inclusive.
(25) Existing law authorizes secondary schools and postsecondary educational institutions to offer instruction in career technical education.
This bill would establish the California Career Technical Education Incentive Grant Program, under the administration of the State Department of Education, as a state education and economic and workforce development initiative with the goal of providing pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive, with the knowledge and skills necessary to transition to employment and postsecondary education. The bill would establish criteria for the award of grants to school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, or regional occupational centers or programs operated by joint powers authorities under these provisions. The bill would appropriate specified amounts from the General Fund in the 2015–16, 2016–17, and 2017–18 fiscal years to the department for the award of grants.
(26) Existing law establishes a process for the adoption of instructional materials, including instructional materials related to history-social science, for use in public elementary and secondary schools.
This bill would, for purposes of adopting basic instructional materials for history-social science, require the State Department of Education to provide notice of the imposition of a fee, as specified, to all publishers and manufacturers known to produce basic instructional materials in history-social science. The bill would require that each publisher or manufacturer choosing to participate in the textbook adoption process be assessed a fee based on the number of programs the publisher or manufacturer indicates will be submitted for review and the number of grade levels proposed to be covered by each program.
(27) Existing law requires 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 developing regional plans to better serve the educational needs of adults. Existing law requires the grant funds provided under this program to be used by each regional consortium to create and implement a plan to better provide adults in its region with certain skills, classes, courses, and programs, including, among other things, programs for apprentices.
This bill would instead require the plan to better provide adults in the region with programs offering pre-apprenticeship training activities, as specified. To the extent that this bill would impose new duties on school districts and community college districts that participate in these regional consortia, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.
(28) Existing law provides that adult schools and evening high schools shall consist of classes for adults. Existing law authorizes minors to be admitted into those classes pursuant to policies adopted by the governing board of the school district if those minors meet certain eligibility requirements.
This bill would establish the Adult Education Block Grant Program under the administration of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The bill would require the chancellor and the Superintendent, with the advice of the Executive Director of the State Board of Education, to divide the state into adult education regions and approve one adult education consortium in each adult education region, as specified.
The bill would require the chancellor and the Superintendent, with the advice of the executive director, to approve, for each consortium, rules and procedures that adhere to prescribed conditions. The bill would require that, as a condition for the receipt of an apportionment of funds from this program for a particular fiscal year, members of a consortium to have approved an adult education plan, as specified.
The bill, for the 2015–16 fiscal year, would require the chancellor and the Superintendent, with the concurrence of the executive director, to approve a schedule of allocations, and to apportion funds, to each consortium in accordance with prescribed calculations. The bill, for the 2016–17 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, would require the chancellor and the Superintendent, with the advice of the executive director, to approve, within 15 days of the annual Budget Act and in accordance with prescribed criteria, a final schedule of allocations to each consortium under the program.
The bill would require the chancellor and the Superintendent to submit to the Director of Finance, the State Board of Education, and the Legislature, no later than January 31, 2016, a plan approved by the chancellor and the Superintendent to distribute funds from specified federal programs to the consortia for purposes of the program proposed in this bill. The bill would also require the chancellor and the Superintendent to submit an annual report including specified data about the use of funds for the program and the outcomes for adults statewide and in each adult education region.
This bill would, to the extent that one-time funding is made available in the Budget Act of 2015 for its purposes, require the chancellor and the Superintendent to identify common measures for determining the effectiveness of the members of each consortium in meeting the educational needs of adults, as specified. The bill would require the chancellor and the Superintendent to submit to the Director of Finance, the State Board of Education, and the appropriate fiscal and policy committees of the Legislature, no later than November 1, 2015, a report of its progress in this regard.
The bill would require that 85% of the funds appropriated for purposes of these provisions be used for grants to consortia to establish systems or obtain data for making this annual report, and that 15% of the funds appropriated for purposes of these provisions be used for grants for development of statewide policies and procedures related to data collection or reporting or for technical assistance to consortia, or both.
(29) Existing law requires certain funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act for reimbursement for 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, and county offices of education, to support specified state-mandated local programs. Existing law provides that a school district, charter school, or county office of education that submits a letter requesting funding to the Superintendent of Public Instruction and receives this block grant funding is not eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement for those specified mandated programs for the fiscal year in which the block grant funding is received.
This bill would revise the list of programs that are authorized for block grant funding in lieu of program-specific reimbursement, as specified.
(30) This bill, for the 2014–15 fiscal year, would appropriate $287,149,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for allocation to school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools, and appropriate $49,500,000 from the General Fund to the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges for allocation to community college districts, for purposes of satisfying state-mandated local program reimbursement claims.
The bill also would appropriate $3,098,455,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent for allocation to school districts and county superintendents of schools, and $604,043,000 from the General Fund to the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges for allocation to community college districts, as specified. The bill would authorize the governing boards of school districts and community college districts to expend these one-time funds for any purpose, as determined by a governing board.
(31) Existing law authorizes the Inglewood Unified School District, until June 30, 2015, to sell property owned by the school district and use the proceeds to reduce or retire a specified emergency loan.
This bill would extend the operation of those provisions to June 30, 2018. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Inglewood Unified School District.
(32) Existing law establishes a public school financing system that requires state funding for county superintendents of schools, school districts, and charter schools to be calculated pursuant to a local control funding formula, as specified. Existing law requires funding pursuant to the local control funding formula to include, in addition to a base grant, supplemental and concentration grant add-ons that are based on the percentage of certain categories of pupils, known as unduplicated pupils, served by the county superintendent of schools, school district, or charter school. Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to calculate, for each county superintendent of schools, school district, and charter school, a base entitlement for the transition to the local control funding formula, and requires the Superintendent to determine the percentage of school districts that are apportioned base entitlement funding that is less than the amount calculated pursuant to the local control funding formula. If the percentage is less than 10%, existing law requires the Superintendent to apportion funding to school districts and charter schools equal to the amount calculated pursuant to the local control funding formula in that fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature that when the local control funding formula is fully implemented, local educational agencies shall be required to report to the Superintendent for compilation on the State Department of Education’s Internet Web site (1) the amount of funds received on the basis of the number and concentration of unduplicated pupils in the current year and, to the extent available, prior fiscal years and (2) the amount of local control funding formula funds expended on services for unduplicated pupils in the current year and, to the extent available, prior fiscal years commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year. By requiring local educational agencies to report certain information to the Superintendent, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(33) This bill would require an amount to be determined by the Director of Finance to be appropriated, on or before June 30, 2016, from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction in the event that and up to the amount by which specified revenues distributed to local educational agencies for special education programs are less than the estimated amount reflected in the Budget Act of 2015. The bill would also require the Director of Finance to reduce the General Fund appropriation for these programs by the amount that these revenues exceed the estimated amount.
(34) This bill would require the State Department of Education to convene, by September 1, 2015, a stakeholder group, composed as specified, to provide recommendations to streamline data and other reporting requirements for child care and early learning providers that contract with the department to provide state preschool and other state subsidized child care and early learning programs, as specified.
(35) This bill would require the State Department of Education to convene, by September 1, 2015, a stakeholder group, composed as specified, to examine CalWORKs Stage 2, CalWORKs Stage 3, and alternative payment program child care contract requirements, program and fiscal audits, and the process by which contractors are informed of and implement new contract requirements, with the purpose of identifying redundancies and efficiencies in program implementation and reducing the workload in program administration, as specified.
(36) This bill would appropriate the sum of $50,000 from the General Fund to the State Department of Education for payment of claims received in the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years pursuant to the requirements for conducting hearings relating to suspension or dismissal of certificated school employees.
(37) This bill would appropriate the sum of $350,000 to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for support and development of evaluation rubrics for specified purposes relating to the implementation of local control and accountability plans.
(38) In the 2009–10 and 2010–11 fiscal years, for a pupil of a charter school sponsored by a basic aid school district who resided in a school district other than a basic aid school district, the Superintendent of Public Instruction was required to apportion to the sponsoring school district an amount equal to 70% of the revenue limit funding per unit of average daily attendance that would have been apportioned to the school district in which the pupil resided, as specified. However, a basic aid school district that lost basic aid status as a result of required property tax transfers to charter schools was entitled to a pro rata share of that apportionment, calculated based on the ratio between (1) the amount of property taxes the school district would have received in excess of the revenue limit guarantee before required property tax transfers to charter schools and (2) the total amount of property taxes transferred to the charter schools that the school district sponsored.
This bill would, for the 2009–10 and 2010–11 fiscal years, require that certain allocations from the county Supplemental Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund, created in 2009 and funded with specified redevelopment agency revenues, be treated as property taxes for purposes of calculating the ratio that determined the pro rata share of the apportionment for a basic aid school district that lost its basic aid status as a result of required property tax transfers to charter schools.
(39) This bill would appropriate an additional $2,000,000 to the amount apportioned pursuant to the local control funding formula for the Los Angeles County Office of Education for the purpose of supporting professional development and leadership training for education professionals related to antibias education and the creation of inclusive and equitable schools.
(40) This bill would specify that, of the amount allocated pursuant to a specified item in the Budget Act of 2012, $16,549,000 shall be allocated to fund the 2010–11 fiscal year maintenance of effort in the special education program, and $19,173,000 shall be allocated to fund the 2011–12 maintenance of effort in the special education program.
(41) This bill would appropriate the sum of $10,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction on a one-time basis to apportion to a designated county office of education or two designated county offices of education applying jointly to provide technical assistance and to develop and disseminate statewide resources that encourage and assist local educational agencies and charter schools in establishing and aligning schoolwide, data-driven systems of learning and behavioral supports for the purpose of meeting the needs of California’s diverse learners in the most inclusive environments possible, as specified. The bill would provide that the designated county office of education or county offices of education shall, with the goal of maximizing their availability, efficacy, and usage across the state, identify existing evidence-based resources, professional development activities, and other efforts currently available, and develop new evidence-based resources and activities designed to help local educational agencies and charter schools across the state complete specified activities. The bill would require the designated county office of education or county offices of education, by September 30 of each fiscal year until the designated county office of education or county offices of education have fully expended the allocated funds, to submit an annual report to the Superintendent of Public Instruction summarizing how the designated county office of education or county offices of education used the allocated funds in the prior fiscal year.
(42) This bill would appropriate the sum of $490,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction to be allocated to school districts, county offices of education, charter schools, and the state special schools, as provided, for specified teacher and administrator training and professional development. The bill would appropriate the sum of $10,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent of Public Instruction to be provided to the K–12 High-Speed Network for the purpose of providing professional development and technical assistance to local educational agencies related to network management.

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 2574 of the Education Code is amended to read:

2574.
 For the 2013–14 fiscal year and for each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent annually shall calculate a county local control funding formula for each county superintendent of schools as follows:
(a) Compute a county office of education operations grant equal to the sum of each of the following amounts:
(1) Six hundred fifty-five thousand nine hundred twenty dollars ($655,920).
(2) One hundred nine thousand three hundred twenty dollars ($109,320) multiplied by the number of school districts for which the county superintendent of schools has jurisdiction pursuant to Section 1253.
(3) (A) Seventy dollars ($70) multiplied by the number of units of countywide average daily attendance, up to a maximum of 30,000 units.
(B) Sixty dollars ($60) multiplied by the number of units of countywide average daily attendance for the portion of countywide average daily attendance, if any, above 30,000 units, up to a maximum of 60,000 units.
(C) Fifty dollars ($50) multiplied by the number of units of countywide average daily attendance for the portion of countywide average daily attendance, if any, above 60,000, up to a maximum of 140,000 units.
(D) Forty dollars ($40) multiplied by the number of units of countywide average daily attendance for the portion of countywide average daily attendance, if any, above 140,000 units.
(E) For purposes of this section, countywide average daily attendance means the aggregate number of annual units of average daily attendance within the county attributable to all school districts for which the county superintendent of schools has jurisdiction pursuant to Section 1253, charter schools authorized by school districts for which the county superintendent of schools has jurisdiction, and charter schools authorized by the county superintendent of schools.
(4) For the 2014–15 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, adjust each of the rates provided in the prior year pursuant to paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) by the percentage change in the annual average value of the Implicit Price Deflator for State and Local Government Purchases of Goods and Services for the United States, as published by the United States Department of Commerce for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. This percentage change shall be determined using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year compared with the annual average value of the same deflator for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the second preceding fiscal year, using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year, as reported by the Department of Finance.
(b) Determine the enrollment percentage of unduplicated pupils pursuant to the following:
(1) (A) For the 2013–14 fiscal year, divide the enrollment of unduplicated pupils in all schools operated by a county superintendent of schools in the 2013–14 fiscal year by the total enrollment in those schools in the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(B) For the 2014–15 fiscal year, divide the sum of the enrollment of unduplicated pupils in all schools operated by a county superintendent of schools in the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years by the sum of the total enrollment in those schools in the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years.
(C) For the 2015–16 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, divide the sum of the enrollment of unduplicated pupils in all schools operated by a county superintendent of schools in the current fiscal year and the two prior fiscal years by the sum of the total enrollment in those schools in the current fiscal year and the two prior fiscal years.
(D) (i) For purposes of the quotients determined pursuant to subparagraphs (B) and (C), the Superintendent shall use a county superintendent of schools’ enrollment of unduplicated pupils and total pupil enrollment in the 2014–15 fiscal year instead of the enrollment of unduplicated pupils and total pupil enrollment in the 2013–14 fiscal year if doing so would yield an overall greater percentage of unduplicated pupils.
(ii) It is the intent of the Legislature to review each county office of education’s enrollment of unduplicated pupils for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years and provide one-time funding, if necessary, for a county office of education with higher enrollment of unduplicated pupils in the 2014–15 fiscal year as compared to the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(E) For purposes of determining the enrollment percentage of unduplicated pupils pursuant to this subdivision, enrollment in schools or classes established pursuant to Article 2.5 (commencing with Section 48645) of Chapter 4 of Part 27 of Division 4 of Title 2 and the enrollment of pupils other than the pupils identified in clauses (i) to (iii), inclusive, of subparagraph (A) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (c), shall be excluded from the calculation of the enrollment percentage of unduplicated pupils.
(F) The data used to determine the percentage of unduplicated pupils shall be final once that data is no longer used in the current fiscal year calculation of the percentage of unduplicated pupils. This subparagraph does not apply to a change that is the result of an audit that has been appealed pursuant to Section 41344.
(2) For purposes of this section, an “unduplicated pupil” is a pupil who is classified as an English learner, eligible for a free or reduced-price meal, or a foster youth. For purposes of this section, the definitions in Section 42238.01 of an English learner, a pupil eligible for a free or reduced-price meal, and foster youth shall apply. A pupil shall be counted only once for purposes of this section if any of the following apply:
(A) The pupil is classified as an English learner and is eligible for a free or reduced-price meal.
(B) The pupil is classified as an English learner and is a foster youth.
(C) The pupil is eligible for a free or reduced-price meal and is classified as a foster youth.
(D) The pupil is classified as an English learner, is eligible for a free or reduced-price meal, and is a foster youth.
(3) (A) Under procedures and timeframes established by the Superintendent, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, a county superintendent of schools annually shall report the enrollment of unduplicated pupils, pupils classified as English learners, pupils eligible for free and reduced-price meals, and foster youth in schools operated by the county superintendent of schools to the Superintendent using the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System.
(B) The Superintendent shall make the calculations pursuant to this section using the data submitted through the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System.
(C) The Controller shall include instructions, as appropriate, in the audit guide required by subdivision (a) of Section 14502.1, for determining if the data reported by a county superintendent of schools using the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System is consistent with pupil data records maintained by the county office of education.
(c) Compute an alternative education grant equal to the sum of the following:
(1) (A) For the 2013–14 fiscal year, a base grant equal to the 2012–13 per pupil undeficited statewide average juvenile court school base revenue limit calculated pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 2550) of Chapter 12, as that article read on January 1, 2013. For purposes of this subparagraph, the 2012–13 statewide average juvenile court school base revenue limit shall be considered final as of the annual apportionment for the 2012–13 fiscal year, as calculated for purposes of the certification required on or before February 20, 2014, pursuant to Sections 41332 and 41339.
(B) Commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year, the per pupil base grant shall be adjusted by the percentage change in the annual average value of the Implicit Price Deflator for State and Local Government Purchases of Goods and Services for the United States, as published by the United States Department of Commerce for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. This percentage change shall be determined using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year compared with the annual average value of the same deflator for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the second preceding fiscal year, using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year, as reported by the Department of Finance.
(2) A supplemental grant equal to 35 percent of the base grant described in paragraph (1) multiplied by the enrollment percentage calculated in subdivision (b). The supplemental grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(3) (A) A concentration grant equal to 35 percent of the base grant described in paragraph (1) multiplied by the greater of either of the following:
(i) The enrollment percentage calculated in subdivision (b) less 50 percent.
(ii) Zero.
(B) The concentration grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(4) (A) Multiply the sum of paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) by the total number of units of average daily attendance for pupils attending schools operated by a county office of education, excluding units of average daily attendance for pupils attending schools or classes established pursuant to Article 2.5 (commencing with Section 48645) of Chapter 4 of Part 27 of Division 4 of Title 2, who are enrolled pursuant to any of the following:

Funds provided for the supplemental and concentration grants pursuant to this calculation shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(C) Add the amounts calculated in subparagraphs (A) and (B).

 Section 8335.1 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8335.1.
 Before implementing the local subsidy plan, the City and County of San Francisco, in consultation with the department, shall develop an individualized county child care subsidy plan for the city and county that includes the following four elements:
(a) An assessment to identify the city and county’s goal for its subsidized child care system.

The assessment shall also identify barriers in the state’s child care subsidy system that inhibit the city and county from meeting its child care goals. In conducting the assessment, the city and county shall consider all of the following:
(1) The general demographics of families who are in need of child care, including employment, income, language, ethnic, and family composition.
(2) The current supply of available subsidized child care.
(3) The level of need for various types of subsidized child care services including, but not limited to, infant care, after-hours care, and care for children with exceptional needs.
(4) The city and county’s self-sufficiency income level.
(5) Income eligibility levels for subsidized child care.
(6) Family fees.
(7) The cost of providing child care.

(C) Meet local goals that are consistent with the state’s child care goals.
(D) Identify existing policies that would be affected by the city and county’s child care subsidy plan.

(2) (A) The city and county shall, by the end of the first fiscal year of operation under the approved child care subsidy plan, demonstrate an increase in the aggregate child days of enrollment in the county as compared to the enrollment in the final quarter of the 2004–05 fiscal year.
(B) The amount of the increase shall be at least equal to the aggregate child days of enrollment in the final quarter of the 2004–05 fiscal year for all contracts amended as provided in subparagraph (E) of paragraph (1), under which the contractor receives an increase in its reimbursement rate, times 2 percent.
(C) The amount of the increase shall also be proportional to the total contract maximum reimbursable amount to reflect the changes in the budget allocation for each fiscal year of the plan.
(3) The local policy may supersede state law concerning child care subsidy programs with regard only to the following factors:
(A) Eligibility criteria including, but not limited to, age, family size, time limits, income level, inclusion of former and current CalWORKs participants, and special needs considerations, except that the local policy may not deny or reduce eligibility of a family that qualifies for child care pursuant to Section 8353. Under the local policy, a family that qualifies for child care pursuant to Section 8354 shall be treated for purposes of eligibility and fees in the same manner as a family that qualifies for subsidized child care on another basis pursuant to the local policy.
(B) Fees including, but not limited to, family fees, sliding scale fees, and copayments for those families that are not income eligible, as defined by Section 8263.1.
(C) Reimbursement rates.
(D) Methods of maximizing the efficient use of subsidy funds, including, but not limited to, multiyear contracting with the department for center-based child care, and interagency agreements that allow for flexible and temporary transfer of funds among agencies.
(c) Recognition that all funding sources utilized by direct service contractors that provide child care and development services in the city and county are eligible to be included in the child care subsidy plan of the city and county.
(d) Establishment of measurable outcomes to evaluate the success of the plan to achieve the city and county’s child care goals and to overcome any barriers identified in the state’s child care subsidy system.

 Section 8357 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8357.
 (a) The cost of child care services provided under this article shall be governed by regional market rates. Recipients of child care services provided pursuant to this article shall be allowed to choose the child care services of licensed child care providers or child care providers who are, by law, not required to be licensed, and the cost of that child care shall be reimbursed by counties or agencies that contract with the department if the cost is within the regional market rate. For purposes of this section, “regional market rate” means care costing no more than 1.5 market standard deviations above the mean cost of care for that region. Until October 1, 2015, the regional market rate ceilings shall be established at the greater of either the 85th percentile of the 2009 regional market rate survey for that region, reduced by 10.11 percent, or the 85th percentile of the 2005 regional market rate survey for that region. Commencing October 1, 2015, the regional market rate ceilings shall be established at 104.5 percent of the greater of either of the following:
(1) The 85th percentile of the 2009 regional market rate survey for that region, reduced by 10.11 percent.
(2) The 85th percentile of the 2005 regional market rate survey for that region.
(b) Until October 1, 2015, the reimbursement to license-exempt child care providers shall not exceed 60 percent of the family child care home rate established pursuant to subdivision (a), effective July 1, 2011. Commencing October 1, 2015, reimbursement to license-exempt child care providers shall not exceed 65 percent of the family child care home rate established pursuant to subdivision (a).
(c) Reimbursement to child care providers shall not exceed the fee charged to private clients for the same service.
(d) Reimbursement shall not be made for child care services when care is provided by parents, legal guardians, or members of the assistance unit.
(e) A child care provider located on an Indian reservation or rancheria and exempted from state licensing requirements shall meet applicable tribal standards.
(f) For purposes of this section, “reimbursement” means a direct payment to the provider of child care services, including license-exempt providers. If care is provided in the home of the recipient, payment may be made to the parent as the employer, and the parent shall be informed of his or her concomitant legal and financial reporting requirements. To allow time for the development of the administrative systems necessary to issue direct payments to providers, for a period not to exceed six months from the effective date of this article, a county or an alternative payment agency contracting with the department may reimburse the cost of child care services through a direct payment to a recipient of aid rather than to the child care provider.
(g) Counties and alternative payment programs shall not be bound by the rate limits described in subdivision (a) when there are, in the region, no more than two child care providers of the type needed by the recipient of child care services provided under this article.
(h) (1) Notwithstanding any other law, reimbursements to child care providers based upon a daily rate may only be authorized under either of the following circumstances:
(A) A family has an unscheduled but documented need of six hours or more per occurrence, such as the parent’s need to work on a regularly scheduled day off, that exceeds the certified need for child care.
(B) A family has a documented need of six hours or more per day that exceeds no more than 14 days per month. In no event shall reimbursements to a provider based on the daily rate over one month’s time exceed the provider’s equivalent full-time monthly rate or applicable monthly ceiling.
(2) This subdivision shall not limit providers from being reimbursed for services using a weekly or monthly rate, pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 8222.

 Section 8447 of the Education Code is amended to read:

8447.
 (a) The Legislature hereby finds and declares that greater efficiencies may be achieved in the execution of state subsidized child care and development program contracts with public and private agencies by the timely approval of contract provisions by the Department of Finance, the Department of General Services, and the department and by authorizing the department to establish a multiyear application, contract expenditure, and service review as may be necessary to provide timely service while preserving audit and oversight functions to protect the public welfare.
(b) (1) The Department of Finance and the Department of General Services shall approve or disapprove annual contract funding terms and conditions, including both family fee schedules and regional market rate schedules that are required to be adhered to by contract, and contract face sheets submitted by the department not more than 30 working days from the date of submission, unless unresolved conflicts remain between the Department of Finance, the department, and the Department of General Services. The department shall resolve conflicts within an additional 30 working day time period. Contracts and funding terms and conditions shall be issued to child care contractors no later than June 1. Applications for new child care funding shall be issued not more than 45 working days after the effective date of authorized new allocations of child care moneys.
(2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), until January 1, 2015, the State Department of Education shall implement the regional market rate schedules based upon the county aggregates, as determined by the Regional Market survey conducted in 2005. Commencing January 1, 2015, the department shall implement the regional market rate schedules based upon the 85th percentile of county aggregates, as determined by the Regional Market survey conducted in 2009. Commencing January 1, 2015, the regional market rate schedule developed pursuant to this paragraph shall be reduced by 10.11 percent. If a ceiling for a county is less than the ceiling provided for that county before January 1, 2015, the department shall use the ceiling from the Regional Market survey conducted in 2005. Commencing October 1, 2015, the regional market rate ceilings for all counties shall be increased by 4.5 percent.
(3) It is the intent of the Legislature to fully fund the third stage of child care for former CalWORKs recipients.
(c) With respect to subdivision (b), it is the intent of the Legislature that the Department of Finance annually review contract funding terms and conditions for the primary purpose of ensuring consistency between child care contracts and the child care budget. This review shall include evaluating any proposed changes to contract language or other fiscal documents to which the contractor is required to adhere, including those changes to terms or conditions that authorize higher reimbursement rates, modify related adjustment factors, modify administrative or other service allowances, or diminish fee revenues otherwise available for services, to determine if the change is necessary or has the potential effect of reducing the number of full-time equivalent children that may be served.
(d) Alternative payment child care systems, as set forth in Article 3 (commencing with Section 8220), shall be subject to the rates established in the Regional Market Rate Survey of California Child Care Providers for provider payments. The department shall contract to conduct and complete a Regional Market Rate Survey no more frequently than once every two years, consistent with federal regulations, with a goal of completion by March 1.
(e) By March 1 of each year, the Department of Finance shall provide to the department the state median income amount for a four-person household in California based on the best available data. The department shall adjust its fee schedule for child care providers to reflect this updated state median income; however, no changes based on revisions to the state median income amount shall be implemented midyear.
(f) Notwithstanding the June 1 date specified in subdivision (b), changes to the regional market rate schedules and fee schedules may be made at any other time to reflect the availability of accurate data necessary for their completion, provided these documents receive the approval of the Department of Finance. The Department of Finance shall review the changes within 30 working days of submission and the department shall resolve conflicts within an additional 30 working day period. Contractors shall be given adequate notice before the effective date of the approved schedules. It is the intent of the Legislature that contracts for services not be delayed by the timing of the availability of accurate data needed to update these schedules.

(2) (A) Agree to deposit into the account established pursuant to paragraph (1), in each fiscal year for 20 years after receipt of funds under this chapter, a minimum amount equal to or greater than 3 percent of the total general fund expenditures of the applicant school district, including other financing uses, for that fiscal year.
(B) Notwithstanding subparagraph (A), for the 2015–16 and 2016–17 fiscal years, the minimum amount required to be deposited into the account established pursuant to paragraph (1) shall be the lesser of the following amounts:
(i) Three percent of the total general fund expenditures for that fiscal year.

The plan may provide that the school district need not expend all of its annual allocation for ongoing and major maintenance in the year in which it is deposited if the cost of major maintenance requires that the allocation be carried over into another fiscal year. However, any state funds carried over into a subsequent year may not be counted toward the annual minimum contribution by the school district.
(c) A school district to which paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) does not apply shall certify to the board that it can reasonably maintain its facilities with a lesser level of maintenance.

(C) For the 2015–16 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, divide the sum of unduplicated pupils for the current fiscal year and the two prior fiscal years by the sum of the total pupil enrollment for the current fiscal year and the two prior fiscal years.
(D) (i) For purposes of the quotients determined pursuant to subparagraphs (B) and (C), the Superintendent shall use a school district’s or charter school’s enrollment of unduplicated pupils and total pupil enrollment in the 2014–15 fiscal year instead of the enrollment of unduplicated pupils and total pupil enrollment in the 2013–14 fiscal year if doing so would yield an overall greater percentage of unduplicated pupils.
(ii) It is the intent of the Legislature to review each school district and charter school’s enrollment of unduplicated pupils for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fiscal years and provide one-time funding, if necessary, for a school district or charter school with higher enrollment of unduplicated pupils in the 2014–15 fiscal year as compared to the 2013–14 fiscal year.
(6) The data used to determine the percentage of unduplicated pupils shall be final once that data is no longer used in the current fiscal year calculation of the percentage of unduplicated pupils. This paragraph does not apply to a change that is the result of an audit that has been appealed pursuant to Section 41344.
(c) Commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent shall annually calculate a local control funding formula grant for each school district and charter school in the state pursuant to this section.
(d) The Superintendent shall compute a grade span adjusted base grant equal to the total of the following amounts:
(1) For the 2013–14 fiscal year, a base grant of:
(A) Six thousand eight hundred forty-five dollars ($6,845) for average daily attendance in kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive.
(B) Six thousand nine hundred forty-seven dollars ($6,947) for average daily attendance in grades 4 to 6, inclusive.
(C) Seven thousand one hundred fifty-four dollars ($7,154) for average daily attendance in grades 7 and 8.
(D) Eight thousand two hundred eighty-nine dollars ($8,289) for average daily attendance in grades 9 to 12, inclusive.
(2) In each year the grade span adjusted base grants in paragraph (1) shall be adjusted by the percentage change in the annual average value of the Implicit Price Deflator for State and Local Government Purchases of Goods and Services for the United States, as published by the United States Department of Commerce for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. This percentage change shall be determined using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year compared with the annual average value of the same deflator for the 12-month period ending in the third quarter of the second preceding fiscal year, using the latest data available as of May 10 of the preceding fiscal year, as reported by the Department of Finance.
(3) (A) The Superintendent shall compute an additional adjustment to the kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, base grant as adjusted for inflation pursuant to paragraph (2) equal to 10.4 percent. The additional grant shall be calculated by multiplying the kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, base grant, as adjusted by paragraph (2), by 10.4 percent.
(B) Until paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) of Section 42238.03 is effective, as a condition of the receipt of funds in this paragraph, a school district shall make progress toward maintaining an average class enrollment of not more than 24 pupils for each schoolsite in kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, unless a collectively bargained alternative annual average class enrollment for each schoolsite in those grades is agreed to by the school district, pursuant to the following calculation:
(i) Determine a school district’s average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, in the prior year. For the 2013–14 fiscal year, this amount shall be the average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, in the 2012–13 fiscal year.
(ii) Determine a school district’s proportion of total need pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 42238.03.
(iii) Determine the percentage of the need calculated in clause (ii) that is met by funding provided to the school district pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (b) of Section 42238.03.
(iv) Determine the difference between the amount computed pursuant to clause (i) and an average class enrollment of not more than 24 pupils.
(v) Calculate a current year average class enrollment adjustment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, equal to the adjustment calculated in clause (iv) multiplied by the percentage determined pursuant to clause (iii).
(C) School districts that have an average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, of 24 pupils or less for each schoolsite in the 2012–13 fiscal year, shall be exempt from the requirements of subparagraph (B) so long as the school district continues to maintain an average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, of not more than 24 pupils, unless a collectively bargained alternative ratio is agreed to by the school district.
(D) Upon full implementation of the local control funding formula, as a condition of the receipt of funds in this paragraph, all school districts shall maintain an average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, of not more than 24 pupils for each schoolsite in kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, unless a collectively bargained alternative ratio is agreed to by the school district.
(E) The average class enrollment requirement for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, established pursuant to this paragraph shall not be subject to waiver by the state board pursuant to Section 33050 or by the Superintendent.
(F) The Controller shall include the instructions necessary to enforce this paragraph in the audit guide required by Section 14502.1. The instructions shall include, but are not necessarily limited to, procedures for determining if the average class enrollment for each schoolsite for kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, exceeds 24 pupils, or an alternative average class enrollment for each schoolsite pursuant to a collectively bargained alternative ratio. The procedures for determining average class enrollment for each schoolsite shall include criteria for employing sampling.
(4) The Superintendent shall compute an additional adjustment to the base grant for grades 9 to 12, inclusive, as adjusted for inflation pursuant to paragraph (2), equal to 2.6 percent. The additional grant shall be calculated by multiplying the base grant for grades 9 to 12, inclusive, as adjusted by paragraph (2), by 2.6 percent.
(e) The Superintendent shall compute a supplemental grant add-on equal to 20 percent of the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (d), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), for each school district’s or charter school’s percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b). The supplemental grant shall be calculated by multiplying the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), by 20 percent and by the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in that school district or charter school. The supplemental grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(f) (1) The Superintendent shall compute a concentration grant add-on equal to 50 percent of the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (d), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), for each school district’s or charter school’s percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school district’s or charter school’s total enrollment. The concentration grant shall be calculated by multiplying the base grants as specified in subparagraphs (A) to (D), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (d), as adjusted by paragraphs (2) to (4), inclusive, of subdivision (d), by 50 percent and by the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the total enrollment in that school district or charter school.
(2) (A) For a charter school physically located in only one school district, the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent used to calculate concentration grants shall not exceed the percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school district in which the charter school is physically located. For a charter school physically located in more than one school district, the charter school’s percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent used to calculate concentration grants shall not exceed that of the school district with the highest percentage of unduplicated pupils calculated pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) in excess of 55 percent of the school districts in which the charter school has a school facility. The concentration grant shall be expended in accordance with the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 42238.07.
(B) For purposes of this paragraph and subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (f) of Section 42238.03, a charter school shall report its physical location to the department under timeframes established by the department. For a charter school authorized by a school district, the department shall include the authorizing school district in the department’s determination of physical location. For a charter school authorized on appeal pursuant to subdivision (j) of Section 47605, the department shall include the sponsoring school district in the department’s determination of physical location. The reported physical location of the charter school shall be considered final as of the second principal apportionment for that fiscal year. For purposes of this paragraph, the percentage of unduplicated pupils of the school district associated with the charter school pursuant to subparagraph (A) shall be considered final as of the second principal apportionment for that fiscal year.
(g) The Superintendent shall compute an add-on to the total sum of a school district’s or charter school’s base, supplemental, and concentration grants equal to the amount of funding a school district or charter school received from funds allocated pursuant to the Targeted Instructional Improvement Block Grant program, as set forth in Article 6 (commencing with Section 41540) of Chapter 3.2, for the 2012–13 fiscal year, as that article read on January 1, 2013. A school district or charter school shall not receive a total funding amount from this add-on greater than the total amount of funding received by the school district or charter school from that program in the 2012–13 fiscal year. The amount computed pursuant to this subdivision shall reflect the reduction specified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 42238.03.
(h) (1) The Superintendent shall compute an add-on to the total sum of a school district’s or charter school’s base, supplemental, and concentration grants equal to the amount of funding a school district or charter school received from funds allocated pursuant to the Home-to-School Transportation program, as set forth in former Article 2 (commencing with Section 39820) of Chapter 1 of Part 23.5, former Article 10 (commencing with Section 41850) of Chapter 5, and the Small School District Transportation program, as set forth in former Article 4.5 (commencing with Section 42290), as those articles read on January 1, 2013, for the 2012–13 fiscal year. A school district or charter school shall not receive a total funding amount from this add-on greater than the total amount received by the school district or charter school for those programs in the 2012–13 fiscal year. The amount computed pursuant to this subdivision shall reflect the reduction specified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 42238.03.
(2) If a home-to-school transportation joint powers agency, established pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 6500) of Chapter 5 of Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code for purposes of providing pupil transportation, received an apportionment directly from the Superintendent from any of the funding sources specified in paragraph (1) for the 2012–13 fiscal year, the joint powers agency may identify the member local educational agencies and transfer entitlement to that funding to any of those member local educational agencies by reporting to the Superintendent, on or before September 30, 2015, the reassignment of a specified amount of the joint powers agency’s 2012–13 fiscal year entitlement to the member local educational agency. Commencing with the 2015–16 fiscal year, the Superintendent shall compute an add-on to the total sum of a school district’s or charter school’s base, supplemental, and concentrations grants equal to the amount of the entitlement to funding transferred by the joint powers agency to the member school district or charter school.
(i) (1) The sum of the local control funding formula rates computed pursuant to subdivisions (c) to (f), inclusive, shall be multiplied by:
(A) For school districts, the average daily attendance of the school district in the corresponding grade level ranges computed pursuant to Section 42238.05, excluding the average daily attendance computed pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 42238.05 for purposes of the computation specified in subdivision (d).

(B) For purposes of subparagraph (A), the proportion of total need that is funded from any available appropriations specifically made for purposes of this subdivision for a fiscal year shall be considered fixed as of the second principal apportionment for that fiscal year. Adjustments to a school district’s or charter school’s total need, as computed pursuant to paragraph (1), subsequent to the second principal apportionment for a fiscal year, shall be funded based on the fixed proportion of total need that is funded for that fiscal year pursuant to this subdivision and shall be continuously appropriated pursuant to Section 14002.
(4) If the total amount of funds appropriated for purposes of paragraph (3) pursuant to this subdivision are sufficient to fully fund any positive amounts computed pursuant to paragraph (1), the local control funding formula grant computed pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 42238.02 shall be adjusted to ensure that any available appropriation authority is expended for purposes of the local control funding formula.
(5) Commencing with the first fiscal year after either paragraph (4) of this subdivision or paragraph (2) of subdivision (g) applies, the adjustments in paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02 shall be made only if an appropriation for those adjustments is included in the annual Budget Act.

A school district’s 2012–13 revenue limit funding shall exclude amounts computed pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 42280). For purposes of this subparagraph, 2012–13 fiscal year average daily attendance and 2012–13 fiscal year revenue limits shall be considered final as of the annual apportionment for the 2012–13 fiscal year, as calculated for purposes of the certification required on or before February 20, 2014, pursuant to Sections 41332 and 41339.
(B) (i) For charter schools, general purpose funding in the 2012–13 fiscal year as computed pursuant to Article 2 (commencing with Section 47633) of Chapter 6 of Part 26.8 of Division 4, as that article read on January 1, 2013, and the amount of in-lieu property tax provided to the charter school in the 2012–13 fiscal year pursuant to Section 47635, as that section read on January 1, 2013, divided by the 2012–13 average daily attendance of the charter school computed pursuant to Section 42238.05.

For purposes of this subparagraph, 2012–13 fiscal year entitlements shall be considered final as of the annual apportionment for the 2012–13 fiscal year, as calculated for purposes of the certification required on or before February 20, 2014, pursuant to Sections 41332 and 41339.
(B) Commencing with the 2014–15 fiscal year, the entitlements identified in subparagraph (A) shall be adjusted to reflect the exclusion of one-time redevelopment agency liquid asset recovery revenue, pursuant to Section 34179.5 and following, of the Health and Safety Code, before the application of the 8.92-percent reduction applied pursuant to subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 3 of Chapter 2 of the Statutes of 2012.
(C) The Superintendent shall annually apportion any entitlement provided to the state special schools from the items specified in subparagraph (A) to the state special schools in the same amount as the state special schools received from those items in the 2012–13 fiscal year.

(3) The allocations pursuant to Sections 42606 and 47634.1, as those sections read on January 1, 2013, divided by the 2012–13 average daily attendance of the charter school. That quotient shall be multiplied by the current fiscal year average daily attendance of the charter school.
(f) (1) For purposes of this section, commencing with the 2013–14 fiscal year and until all school districts and charter schools equal or exceed their local control funding formula target computed pursuant to Section 42238.02, as determined by the calculation of a zero difference pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b), a newly operational charter school shall be determined to have a prior year funding amount per unit of average daily attendance equal to the lesser of:
(A) The prior year funding amount per unit of average daily attendance for the school district in which the charter school is physically located. The Superintendent shall calculate the funding amount per unit of average daily attendance for this purpose by dividing the total local control funding formula entitlement, calculated pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b), received by that school district in the prior year by prior year funded average daily attendance of that school district. For purposes of this subparagraph, a charter school that is physically located in more than one school district shall use the calculated local control funding entitlement per unit of average daily attendance of the school district with the highest prior year funding amount per unit of average daily attendance. For purposes of this subparagraph, the prior year funding amount per unit of average daily attendance for the school district in which the charter school is physically located shall be considered final as of the second principal apportionment of the prior fiscal year.
(B) The charter school’s local control funding formula rate computed pursuant to subdivisions (c) to (i), inclusive, of Section 42238.02.
(2) For charter schools funded pursuant to paragraph (1), the charter school shall be eligible to receive growth funding pursuant to subdivision (b) toward meeting the newly operational charter school’s local control funding formula target.
(3) Upon a determination that all school districts and charter schools equal or exceed the local control funding formula target computed pursuant to Section 42238.02, as determined by the calculation of a zero difference pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) for all school districts and charter schools, this subdivision shall not apply and the charter school shall receive an allocation equal to the amount calculated under Section 42238.02 in that fiscal year and future fiscal years.
(4) For purposes of this subdivision, the determination of a charter school’s physical location shall be considered final as of the second principal apportionment for the applicable fiscal year.
(g) (1) In each fiscal year the Superintendent shall determine the percentage of school districts that are apportioned funding pursuant to this section that is less than the amount computed pursuant to Section 42238.02 as of the second principal apportionments of the fiscal year. If the percentage is less than 10 percent, the Superintendent shall apportion funding to school districts and charter schools equal to the amount computed pursuant to Section 42238.02 in that fiscal year.
(2) For each fiscal year thereafter, the Superintendent shall apportion funding to a school district and charter school equal to the amount computed pursuant to Section 42238.02.

(c) For purposes of this section, the California School Finance Authority shall do all of the following:
(1) Inform charter schools of the grant program.
(2) Upon application by a charter school, determine eligibility, based on the geographic location of the charter schoolsite, pupil eligibility for free or reduced-price meals, and a preference in admissions, as appropriate. Eligibility for funding shall not be limited to the grade level or levels served by the school whose attendance area is used to determine eligibility. A charter schoolsite is eligible for funding pursuant to this section if the charter schoolsite meets either of the following conditions:
(A) The charter schoolsite is physically located in the attendance area of a public elementary school in which 55 percent or more of the pupil enrollment is eligible for free or reduced-price meals and the charter schoolsite gives a preference in admissions to pupils who are currently enrolled in that public elementary school and to pupils who reside in the elementary school attendance area where the charter schoolsite is located.
(B) Fifty-five percent or more of the pupil enrollment at the charter schoolsite is eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
(3) Inform charter schools of their grant eligibility.
(4) Make apportionments to a charter school for eligible expenditures according to the following schedule:

The initial apportionment shall be 50 percent of the charter school’s estimated annual entitlement as determined by this section.
(B) A second apportionment by March 1 of each fiscal year. This apportionment shall be 75 percent of the charter school’s estimated annual entitlement, as adjusted for any revisions in cost, enrollment, and other data relevant to computing the charter school’s annual entitlement, less any funding already apportioned to the charter school.
(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.

(1) The California School Finance Authority shall use prior year data on pupil eligibility for free or reduced-price meals to determine eligibility pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (c). A new charter school that was not operational in the prior year shall be eligible in the current year if it meets the free or reduced-price meal eligibility requirements specified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (c) based on current year data. Prior year rent or lease costs provided by charter schools shall be used to determine eligibility for the grant program until 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.
(e) Funds appropriated for purposes of this section shall not be apportioned for any of the following:
(1) Units of average daily attendance generated through nonclassroom-based instruction as defined by paragraph (2) of subdivision (e) of Section 47612.5 or that does not comply with conditions or limitations set forth in regulations adopted by the state board pursuant to this section.
(2) Charter schools occupying existing school district or county office of education facilities, except that charter schools shall be eligible for the portions of their facilities that are not existing school district or county office of education facilities.
(3) Charter schools receiving reasonably equivalent facilities from their chartering authorities pursuant to Section 47614, except that charter schools shall be eligible for the portions of their facilities that are not reasonably equivalent facilities received from their chartering authorities.
(f) Funds appropriated for purposes of this section shall be used for costs associated with facilities rents and leases, consistent with the definitions used in the California School Accounting Manual or regulations adopted by the California School Finance Authority. These funds also may be used for costs, including, but not limited to, costs associated with remodeling buildings, deferred maintenance, initially installing or extending service systems and other built-in equipment, and improving sites.
(g) If an existing charter school located in an elementary attendance area in which less than 50 percent of pupil enrollment is eligible for free or reduced-price meals relocates to an attendance area identified in paragraph (2) of subdivision (c), admissions preference shall be given to pupils who reside in the elementary school attendance area into which the charter school is relocating.
(h) The California School Finance Authority annually shall report to the department and the Director of Finance, and post information on its Internet Web site, regarding the use of funds that have been made available during the fiscal year to each charter school pursuant to the grant program.
(i) The California School Finance Authority shall annually allocate the facilities grants to eligible charter schools according to the schedule in paragraph (4) of subdivision (c) for the current school year rent and lease costs. However, the California School Finance Authority shall first use the funding appropriated for this program to reimburse eligible charter schools for unreimbursed rent or lease costs for the prior school year.
(j) It is the intent of the Legislature that the funding level for the Charter School Facility Grant Program for the 2012–13 fiscal year be considered the base level of funding for subsequent fiscal years.
(k) The Controller shall include instructions appropriate to the enforcement of this section in the audit guide required by subdivision (a) of Section 14502.1.
(l ) The California School Finance Authority, effective with the 2013–14 fiscal year, shall be considered the senior creditor for purposes of satisfying audit findings pursuant to the audit instructions to be developed pursuant to subdivision (k).

 Section 51745.6 of the Education Code is amended to read:

51745.6.
 (a) (1) The ratio of average daily attendance for independent study pupils 18 years of age or less to school district full-time equivalent certificated employees responsible for independent study, calculated as specified by the department, shall not exceed the equivalent ratio of average daily attendance to full-time equivalent certificated employees providing instruction in other educational programs operated by the school district, unless a new higher or lower average daily attendance ratio for all other educational programs offered is negotiated in a collective bargaining agreement or a memorandum of understanding is entered into that indicates an existing collective bargaining agreement contains an alternative average daily attendance ratio.
(2) The ratio of average daily attendance for independent study pupils 18 years of age or less to county office of education full-time equivalent certificated employees responsible for independent study, to be calculated in a manner prescribed by the department, shall not exceed the equivalent prior year ratio of average daily attendance to full-time equivalent certificated employees for all other educational programs operated by the high school or unified school district with the largest average daily attendance of pupils in that county or the collectively bargained alternative ratio used by that high school or unified school district in the prior year, unless a new higher or lower average daily attendance ratio for all other educational programs offered is negotiated in a collective bargaining agreement or a memorandum of understanding is entered into that indicates an existing collective bargaining agreement contains an alternative average daily attendance ratio. The computation of the ratios shall be performed annually by the reporting agency at the time of, and in connection with, the second principal apportionment report to the Superintendent.
(b) Only those units of average daily attendance for independent study that reflect a pupil-teacher ratio that does not exceed the ratios described in subdivision (a) shall be eligible for apportionment pursuant to Section 2575, for county offices of education, and Section 42238.05, for school districts. Nothing in this section shall prevent a school district or county office of education from serving additional units of average daily attendance greater than the ratios described in subdivision (a), except that those additional units shall not be funded pursuant to Section 2575 or 42238.05, as applicable. If a school district, charter school, or county office of education has a memorandum of understanding to provide instruction in coordination with the school district, charter school, or county office of education at which a pupil is enrolled, the ratios that shall apply for purposes of this paragraph are the ratios for the local educational agency providing the independent study program to the pupil pursuant to Section 51749.5.
(c) The calculations performed for purposes of this section shall not include either of the following:
(1) The average daily attendance generated by special education pupils enrolled in special day classes on a full-time basis, or the teachers of those classes.
(2) The average daily attendance or teachers in necessary small schools that are eligible to receive funding pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 42280) of Chapter 7 of Part 24 of Division 3.
(d) The applicable average-daily-attendance-to-certificated-employee ratios described in subdivision (a) may, in a charter school, be calculated by using a fixed average-daily-attendance-to-certificated-employee ratio of 25 to 1, or by using a ratio of less than 25 pupils per certificated employee. A new higher or lower ratio for all other educational programs offered by a charter school may be negotiated in a collective bargaining agreement, or a memorandum of understanding indicating that an existing collective bargaining agreement contains an alternative average daily attendance ratio may be entered into by a charter school. All charter school pupils, regardless of age, shall be included in the applicable average-daily-attendance-to-certificate-employee ratio calculations.

 Section 52052 of the Education Code is amended to read:

52052.
 (a) (1) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, shall develop an Academic Performance Index (API), to measure the performance of schools and school districts, especially the academic performance of pupils.
(2) A school or school district shall demonstrate comparable improvement in academic achievement as measured by the API by all numerically significant pupil subgroups at the school or school district, including:
(A) Ethnic subgroups.
(B) Socioeconomically disadvantaged pupils.
(C) English learners.
(D) Pupils with disabilities.
(E) Foster youth.
(F) Homeless youth.
(3) (A) For purposes of this section, a numerically significant pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 30 pupils, each of whom has a valid test score.
(B) Notwithstanding subparagraph (A), for a subgroup of pupils who are foster youth or homeless youth, a numerically significant pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 15 pupils.
(C) For a school or school district with an API score that is based on no fewer than 11 and no more than 99 pupils with valid test scores, numerically significant pupil subgroups shall be defined by the Superintendent, with approval by the state board.
(4) (A) The API shall consist of a variety of indicators currently reported to the department, including, but not limited to, the results of the achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640, attendance rates for pupils in elementary schools, middle schools, and secondary schools, and the graduation rates for pupils in secondary schools.
(B) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, may also incorporate into the API the rates at which pupils successfully promote from one grade to the next in middle school and high school, and successfully matriculate from middle school to high school.
(C) Graduation rates for pupils in secondary schools shall be calculated for the API as follows:
(i) Four-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school year, which is considered to be three school years after the pupils entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the total calculated in clause (ii).
(ii) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in the school year three school years before the current school year, plus the number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the end of the current school year between the school year that was three school years before the current school year and the date of graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the school between the school year that was three school years before the current school year and the date of graduation who were members of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.
(iii) Five-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school year, which is considered to be four school years after the pupils entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the total calculated in clause (iv).
(iv) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in the school year four years before the current school year, plus the number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the end of the current school year between the school year that was four school years before the current school year and the date of graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the school between the school year that was four years before the current school year and the date of graduation who were members of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.
(v) Six-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school year, which is considered to be five school years after the pupils entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the total calculated in clause (vi).
(vi) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in the school year five years before the current school year, plus the number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the end of the current school year between the school year that was five school years before the current school year and the date of graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the school between the school year that was five years before the current school year and the date of graduation who were members of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.
(D) The inclusion of five- and six-year graduation rates for pupils in secondary schools shall meet the following requirements:
(i) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-half the credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in five years that they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.
(ii) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-quarter the credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in six years that they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.
(iii) Notwithstanding clauses (i) and (ii), schools and school districts shall be granted full credit in their API scores for graduating in five or six years a pupil with disabilities who graduates in accordance with his or her individualized education program.
(E) The pupil data collected for the API that comes from the achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the high school exit examination administered pursuant to Section 60851, when fully implemented, shall be disaggregated by special education status, English learners, socioeconomic status, gender, and ethnic group. Only the test scores of pupils who were counted as part of the enrollment in the annual data collection of the California Basic Educational Data System for the current fiscal year and who were continuously enrolled during that year may be included in the test result reports in the API score of the school.
(F) (i) Commencing with the baseline API calculation in 2016, and for each year thereafter, results of the achievement test and other tests specified in subdivision (b) shall constitute no more than 60 percent of the value of the index for secondary schools.
(ii)  In addition to the elements required by this paragraph, the Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, may incorporate into the index for secondary schools valid, reliable, and stable measures of pupil preparedness for postsecondary education and career.
(G) Results of the achievement test and other tests specified in subdivision (b) shall constitute at least 60 percent of the value of the index for primary schools and middle schools.
(H) It is the intent of the Legislature that the state’s system of public school accountability be more closely aligned with both the public’s expectations for public education and the workforce needs of the state’s economy. It is therefore necessary that the accountability system evolve beyond its narrow focus on pupil test scores to encompass other valuable information about school performance, including, but not limited to, pupil preparedness for college and career, as well as the high school graduation rates already required by law.
(I) The Superintendent shall annually determine the accuracy of the graduation rate data. Notwithstanding any other law, graduation rates for pupils in dropout recovery high schools shall not be included in the API. For purposes of this subparagraph, “dropout recovery high school” means a high school in which 50 percent or more of its pupils have been designated as dropouts pursuant to the exit/withdrawal codes developed by the department or left a school and were not otherwise enrolled in a school for a period of at least 180 days.
(J) To complement the API, the Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, may develop and implement a program of school quality review that features locally convened panels to visit schools, observe teachers, interview pupils, and examine pupil work, if an appropriation for this purpose is made in the annual Budget Act.
(K) The Superintendent shall annually provide to local educational agencies and the public a transparent and understandable explanation of the individual components of the API and their relative values within the API.
(L) An additional element chosen by the Superintendent and the state board for inclusion in the API pursuant to this paragraph shall not be incorporated into the API until at least one full school year after the state board’s decision to include the element into the API.
(b) Pupil scores from the following tests, when available and when found to be valid and reliable for this purpose, shall be incorporated into the API:
(1) The standards-based achievement tests provided for in Section 60642.5.
(2) The high school exit examination.
(c) Based on the API, the Superintendent shall develop, and the state board shall adopt, expected annual percentage growth targets for all schools based on their API baseline score from the previous year. Schools are expected to meet these growth targets through effective allocation of available resources. For schools below the statewide API performance target adopted by the state board pursuant to subdivision (d), the minimum annual percentage growth target shall be 5 percent of the difference between the actual API score of a school and the statewide API performance target, or one API point, whichever is greater. Schools at or above the statewide API performance target shall have, as their growth target, maintenance of their API score above the statewide API performance target. However, the state board may set differential growth targets based on grade level of instruction and may set higher growth targets for the lowest performing schools because they have the greatest room for improvement. To meet its growth target, a school shall demonstrate that the annual growth in its API is equal to or more than its schoolwide annual percentage growth target and that all numerically significant pupil subgroups, as defined in subdivision (a), are making comparable improvement.
(d) Upon adoption of state performance standards by the state board, the Superintendent shall recommend, and the state board shall adopt, a statewide API performance target that includes consideration of performance standards and represents the proficiency level required to meet the state performance target.
(e) (1) A school or school district with 11 to 99 pupils with valid test scores shall receive an API score with an asterisk that indicates less statistical certainty than API scores based on 100 or more test scores.
(2) A school or school district annually shall receive an API score, unless the Superintendent determines that an API score would be an invalid measure of the performance of the school or school district for one or more of the following reasons:
(A) Irregularities in testing procedures occurred.
(B) The data used to calculate the API score of the school or school district are not representative of the pupil population at the school or school district.
(C) Significant demographic changes in the pupil population render year-to-year comparisons of pupil performance invalid.
(D) The department discovers or receives information indicating that the integrity of the API score has been compromised.
(E) Insufficient pupil participation in the assessments included in the API.
(F) A transition to new standards-based assessments compromises comparability of results across schools or school districts. The Superintendent may use the authority in this subparagraph in the 2013–14 and 2014–15 school years only, with the approval of the state board.
(3) If a school or school district has fewer than 100 pupils with valid test scores, the calculation of the API or adequate yearly progress pursuant to the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (20 U.S.C. Sec. 6301 et seq.) and federal regulations may be calculated over more than one annual administration of the tests administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the high school exit examination administered pursuant to Section 60851, consistent with regulations adopted by the state board.
(4) Any school or school district that does not receive an API calculated pursuant to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall not receive an API growth target pursuant to subdivision (c). Schools and school districts that do not have an API calculated pursuant to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall use one of the following:
(A) The most recent API calculation.
(B) An average of the three most recent annual API calculations.
(C) Alternative measures that show increases in pupil academic achievement for all groups of pupils schoolwide and among significant subgroups.
(f) Only schools with 100 or more test scores contributing to the API may be included in the API rankings.
(g) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, shall develop an alternative accountability system for schools under the jurisdiction of a county board of education or a county superintendent of schools, community day schools, nonpublic, nonsectarian schools pursuant to Section 56366, and alternative schools serving high-risk pupils, including continuation high schools and opportunity schools. Schools in the alternative accountability system may receive an API score, but shall not be included in the API rankings.
(h) For purposes of this section, county offices of education shall be considered school districts.
(i) For purposes of this section, “homeless youth” has the same meaning as in Section 11434a(2) of Title 42 of the United States Code.

 (a) On or before October 1, 2016, the state board shall adopt evaluation rubrics for all of the following purposes:
(1) To assist a school district, county office of education, or charter school in evaluating its strengths, weaknesses, and areas that require improvement.
(2) To assist a county superintendent of schools in identifying school districts and charter schools in need of technical assistance pursuant to Section 52071 or 47607.3, as applicable, and the specific priorities upon which the technical assistance should be focused.
(3) To assist the Superintendent in identifying school districts for which intervention pursuant to Section 52072 is warranted.
(b) The evaluation rubrics shall reflect a holistic, multidimensional assessment of school district and individual schoolsite performance and shall include all of the state priorities described in subdivision (d) of Section 52060.

(b) When a district’s adult revenue limit as allowed by Section 52616 is composed of average daily attendance from both a regional occupational center or program and an adult education program, the adult revenue limit income may be allocated to each program in a proportion other than the amount of adult revenue limit per average daily attendance otherwise allocable thereto.

SEC. 34.

 Section 52616 of the Education Code is amended to read:

52616.
 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, commencing July 1, 1993, the Superintendent shall determine an adult block entitlement, to be paid from appropriations to Section A of the State School Fund as part of the principal apportionment to school districts, for those school districts that maintain education programs for adults by multiplying the adult education revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance determined pursuant to Section 52616.16 and the adult education average daily attendance determined pursuant to Section 52616.17.
(b) The adult block entitlement shall be deposited in a separate fund of the school district to be known as the “adult education fund.” Money in an adult education fund shall be expended only for adult education purposes. Except for moneys received pursuant to the local control funding formula, moneys received for programs other than adult education shall not be expended for adult education.

The payments made pursuant to this section to the affected taxing entities, including the community, shall be allocated among the affected taxing entities, including the community if the community elects to receive payments, in proportion to the percentage share of property taxes each affected taxing entity, including the community, receives during the fiscal year the funds are allocated, which percentage share shall be determined without regard to any amounts allocated to a city, a city and county, or a county pursuant to Sections 97.68 and 97.70 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, and without regard to any allocation reductions to a city, a city and county, a county, a special district, or a redevelopment agency pursuant to Sections 97.71, 97.72, and 97.73 of the Revenue and Taxation Code and Section 33681.12. The agency shall reduce its payments pursuant to this section to an affected taxing entity by any amount the agency has paid, directly or indirectly, pursuant to Section 33445, 33445.5, 33445.6, 33446, or any other provision of law other than this section for, or in connection with, a public facility owned or leased by that affected taxing agency, except: (A)  any amounts the agency has paid directly or indirectly pursuant to an agreement with a taxing entity adopted prior to January 1, 1994; or (B)  any amounts that are unrelated to the specific project area or amendment governed by this section. The reduction in a payment by an agency to a school district, community college district, or county office of education, or for special education, shall be subtracted only from the amount that otherwise would be available for use by those entities for educational facilities pursuant to paragraph (4). If the amount of the reduction exceeds the amount that otherwise would have been available for use for educational facilities in any one year, the agency shall reduce its payment in more than one year.
(3) If an agency reduces its payment to a school district, community college district, or county office of education, or for special education, the agency shall do all of the following:
(A) Determine the amount of the total payment that would have been made without the reduction.
(B) Determine the amount of the total payment without the reduction which: (i) would have been considered property taxes; and (ii) would have been available to be used for educational facilities pursuant to paragraph (4).
(C) Reduce the amount available to be used for educational facilities.
(D) Send the payment to the school district, community college district, or county office of education, or for special education, with a statement that the payment is being reduced and including the calculation required by this subdivision showing the amount to be considered property taxes and the amount, if any, available for educational facilities.
(4) (A) Except as specified in subparagraph (E), of the total amount paid each year pursuant to this section to school districts, 43.3 percent shall be considered to be property taxes for purposes of paragraph (1) of subdivision (h) of Section 42238 of the Education Code and paragraph (1) of subdivision (j) of Section 42238.02 of the Education Code, and 56.7 percent shall not be considered to be property taxes for purposes of that section and shall be available to be used for educational facilities, including, land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance.
(B) Except as specified in subparagraph (E), of the total amount paid each year pursuant to this section to community college districts, 47.5 percent shall be considered to be property taxes for purposes of Section 84751 of the Education Code, and 52.5 percent shall not be considered to be property taxes for purposes of that section and shall be available to be used for educational facilities, including, land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance.
(C) Except as specified in subparagraph (E), of the total amount paid each year pursuant to this section to county offices of education, 19 percent shall be considered to be property taxes for purposes of Sections 2558 and 2575 of the Education Code, and 81 percent shall not be considered to be property taxes for purposes of those sections and shall be available to be used for educational facilities, including, land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance.
(D) Except as specified in subparagraph (E), of the total amount paid each year pursuant to this section for special education, 19 percent shall be considered to be property taxes for purposes of Sections 2558 and 2575 of the Education Code, or for purposes of paragraph (1) of subdivision (h) of Section 42238 of the Education Code and paragraph (1) of subdivision (j) of Section 42238.02 of the Education Code, as applicable, and 81 percent shall not be considered to be property taxes for purposes of those sections and shall be available to be used for education facilities, including, land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance.
(E) If, pursuant to paragraphs (2) and (3), an agency reduces its payments to an educational entity, the calculation made by the agency pursuant to paragraph (3) shall determine the amount considered to be property taxes and the amount available to be used for educational facilities in the year the reduction was made.
(5) Local education agencies that use funds received pursuant to this section for school facilities shall spend these funds at schools that are: (A) within the project area, (B) attended by students from the project area, (C) attended by students generated by projects that are assisted directly by the redevelopment agency, or (D) determined by the governing board of a local education agency to be of benefit to the project area.
(b) Commencing with the first fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency shall pay to the affected taxing entities, including the community if the community elects to receive a payment, an amount equal to 25 percent of the tax increments received by the agency after the amount required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund has been deducted. In any fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, the community that has adopted the redevelopment project area may elect to receive the amount authorized by this paragraph.
(c) Commencing with the 11th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency shall pay to the affected taxing entities, other than the community which has adopted the project, in addition to the amounts paid pursuant to subdivision (b) and after deducting the amount allocated to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, an amount equal to 21 percent of the portion of tax increments received by the agency, which shall be calculated by applying the tax rate against the amount of assessed value by which the current year assessed value exceeds the first adjusted base year assessed value. The first adjusted base year assessed value is the assessed value of the project area in the 10th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increment revenues.
(d) Commencing with the 31st fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency shall pay to the affected taxing entities, other than the community which has adopted the project, in addition to the amounts paid pursuant to subdivisions (b) and (c) and after deducting the amount allocated to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, an amount equal to 14 percent of the portion of tax increments received by the agency, which shall be calculated by applying the tax rate against the amount of assessed value by which the current year assessed value exceeds the second adjusted base year assessed value. The second adjusted base year assessed value is the assessed value of the project area in the 30th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments.
(e) (1) Prior to incurring any loans, bonds, or other indebtedness, except loans or advances from the community, the agency may subordinate to the loans, bonds, or other indebtedness the amount required to be paid to an affected taxing entity by this section, provided that the affected taxing entity has approved these subordinations pursuant to this subdivision.
(2) At the time the agency requests an affected taxing entity to subordinate the amount to be paid to it, the agency shall provide the affected taxing entity with substantial evidence that sufficient funds will be available to pay both the debt service and the payments required by this section, when due.
(3) Within 45 days after receipt of the agency’s request, the affected taxing entity shall approve or disapprove the request for subordination. An affected taxing entity may disapprove a request for subordination only if it finds, based upon substantial evidence, that the agency will not be able to pay the debt payments and the amount required to be paid to the affected taxing entity. If the affected taxing entity does not act within 45 days after receipt of the agency’s request, the request to subordinate shall be deemed approved and shall be final and conclusive.
(f) (1) The Legislature finds and declares both of the following:
(A) The payments made pursuant to this section are necessary in order to alleviate the financial burden and detriment that affected taxing entities may incur as a result of the adoption of a redevelopment plan, and payments made pursuant to this section will benefit redevelopment project areas.
(B) The payments made pursuant to this section are the exclusive payments that are required to be made by a redevelopment agency to affected taxing entities during the term of a redevelopment plan.
(2) Notwithstanding any other law, a redevelopment agency shall not be required, either directly or indirectly, as a measure to mitigate a significant environmental effect or as part of any settlement agreement or judgment brought in any action to contest the validity of a redevelopment plan pursuant to Section 33501, to make any other payments to affected taxing entities, or to pay for public facilities that will be owned or leased to an affected taxing entity.
(g) As used in this section, a “local education agency” is a school district, a community college district, or a county office of education.

33607.7.
 (a) This section shall apply to a redevelopment plan amendment for any redevelopment plans adopted prior to January 1, 1994, that increases the limitation on the number of dollars to be allocated to the redevelopment agency or that increases, or eliminates pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (e) of Section 33333.6, the time limit on the establishing of loans, advances, and indebtedness established pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 33333.6, as those paragraphs read on December 31, 2001, or that lengthens the period during which the redevelopment plan is effective if the redevelopment plan being amended contains the provisions required by subdivision (b) of Section 33670. However, this section shall not apply to those redevelopment plans that add new territory.
(b) If a redevelopment agency adopts an amendment that is governed by the provisions of this section, it shall pay to each affected taxing entity either of the following:
(1) If an agreement exists that requires payments to the taxing entity, the amount required to be paid by an agreement between the agency and an affected taxing entity entered into prior to January 1, 1994.
(2) If an agreement does not exist, the amounts required pursuant to subdivisions (b), (c), (d), and (e) of Section 33607.5, until termination of the redevelopment plan, calculated against the amount of assessed value by which the current year assessed value exceeds an adjusted base year assessed value. The amounts shall be allocated between property taxes and educational facilities, including, in the case of amounts paid commencing with the 2011–12 fiscal year, land acquisition, facility construction, reconstruction, remodeling, maintenance, or deferred maintenance, according to the appropriate formula in paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 33607.5. In determining the applicable amount under Section 33607.5, the first fiscal year shall be the first fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the adjusted base year value is determined.
(c) The adjusted base year assessed value shall be the assessed value of the project area in the year in which the limitation being amended would have taken effect without the amendment or, if more than one limitation is being amended, the first year in which one or more of the limitations would have taken effect without the amendment. The agency shall commence making these payments pursuant to the terms of the agreement, if applicable, or, if an agreement does not exist, in the first fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the adjusted base year value is determined.
