LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 597, Huff. Pupil attendance: interdistrict transfers.
(1) Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district to accept interdistrict transfers of pupils in accordance with a policy adopted by resolution, and sets forth various requirements in that regard, including, among other things, requirements relating to attendance priorities, applications for transfer, and the calculation of average daily attendance. Existing law imposes certain reporting requirements in connection with interdistrict transfers to certain school districts and county offices of education, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Department of Finance, and requires the Department of Finance to report specified information to the Legislative Analyst, upon request. Existing law makes those provisions inoperative on July 1, 2016, and repeals them on January 1, 2017.
This bill would extend those inoperative and repeal dates to July 1, 2017, and January 1, 2018, respectively.
(2) Existing law requires the Legislative Analyst to conduct, after consulting with appropriate legislative staff, a comprehensive evaluation of the interdistrict transfer program, and recommendations regarding the extension of the program. Existing law requires the evaluation to be completed and submitted, as specified, by November 1, 2014.
This bill would instead require the evaluation to be completed and submitted, as specified, by January 31, 2016.
