CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 2239


Introduced by Assembly Member Eduardo Garcia

February 13, 2018


An act to add Section 51225.37 to the Education Code, relating to pupil instruction.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2239, as amended, Eduardo Garcia. Pupil instruction: foreign language course: A–G course certification.
Existing law requires the California State University, and requests the University of California, to establish a model uniform set of academic standards for high school courses for purposes of recognition for admission to the California State University and to the University of California, respectively. These uniform set of academic standards are commonly referred to as the “A–G” subject requirements. Existing law encourages the governing board of a school district to support schools in submitting any computer science course that a school wishes to use to fulfill school district imposed mathematics subject area requirements to the University of California for certification and addition to the school’s “A–G” course list.
This bill would encourage the governing board of a school district to support schools of the school district district, and encourage the governing body of a charter school to support its charter schools, in submitting any foreign language course that is specifically designed for native speakers of that language to the University of California for certification and addition to the school’s “A–G” course list.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 51225.37 is added to the Education Code, to read:

51225.37.
 The governing board of a school district is encouraged to support schools of the school district district, and the governing body of a charter school is encouraged to support its charter schools, in submitting any foreign language course that is specifically designed for native speakers of that language to the University of California for certification and addition to the school’s “A–G” course list.
