LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 185, as amended, O'Donnell. School attendance: pupil transfer options: school districts of choice.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district to accept pupils from other school districts by adopting a resolution to become a school district of choice, as defined, in accordance with specified procedural requirements and limitations. Existing law makes the school district of choice program inoperative on July 1, 2017, and repeals the program on January 1, 2018.
This bill would repeal the provisions of the school district of choice program, effective immediately, but would authorize a school district of choice established pursuant to the school district of choice program to continue to operate for pupils enrolled in the program on or before June 30, 2017.

This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
