Assembly Bill No. 1157

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1157, as amended, Mullin. Surplus school property: school district advisory committees: teacher and school district employee housing.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district, and, prior to the sale, lease, or rental of any excess real property, except rentals not exceeding 30 days, requires the governing board of each school district, to appoint a school district advisory committee to advise the governing board of the school district in the development of districtwide policies and procedures governing the use or disposition of school buildings or space in school buildings which is not needed for school purposes. Notwithstanding that law, existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district to elect not to appoint an advisory committee in the case of a lease or rental to a private educational institution for the purpose of offering summer school in a facility of the school district.
This bill would also authorize the governing board of a school district to elect not to appoint a school district advisory committee in the sale, lease, or rental of excess real property to be used for teacher or school district employee housing.

Existing law prescribes requirements for the disposal of surplus land by a local agency, including a school district, and requires the local agency disposing of surplus land to first offer to sell or lease the property to other local public entities for specified purposes.

This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would authorize a school district to use surplus property to build teacher housing without giving first priority to other local public entities for specified purposes.
