Assembly Bill
No. 63


Introduced by Assembly Member Bonilla

December 15, 2014


An act to add Section 35294.16 to the Education Code and to add Section 5167 to the Vehicle Code, relating to school safety.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 63, as amended, Bonilla. School safety programs: funding.
The School Safety Violence Protection Act establishes the School Safety and Violence Prevention Strategy Program, which is administered by the Superintendent of Public Instruction, for the purpose of providing grant funding to schools and school districts to promote school safety and violence prevention programs among children and youth in the public schools.
This bill would authorize the Superintendent to consult with the Board of State and Community Corrections, the State Department of Social Services, and the State Department of Public Health on school violence prevention and intervention in order to carry out one or more of the purposes of the programs established under the School Safety and Violence Prevention Strategy Program.
Existing law authorizes a state agency to apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles to sponsor a specialized license plate program, and requires the department to issue specialized license plates for that program, if the state agency complies with specified requirements.
This bill would require the State Department of Education to apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles for the purpose of creating a specialized license plate program. The bill would require that require the Department of Motor Vehicles, after deducting its administrative costs, to deposit the fees collected from the sale of the specialized license plates be deposited in the School Violence Prevention Fund, which the bill would establish, and, upon appropriation by the Legislature, be allocated to the State Department of Education in order to carry out one or more of the purposes of the programs established under the School Safety and Violence Prevention Strategy Program, or as determined by the State Department of Education for purposes of school violence prevention. The bill would require moneys allocated from the fund to the State Department of Education to be available for both charter and noncharter public schools.
