CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 310


Introduced by Assembly Member Medina

February 06, 2017


An act to add Section 87881.5 to the Education Code, relating to community colleges.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 310, as introduced, Medina. Part-time faculty office hours.
Existing law creates the Community College Part-Time Faculty Office Hours Program to provide community college students equal access to academic advice assistance and to encourage community college districts to provide opportunities by compensating part-time faculty who hold office hours related to their teaching load. The governing board of each community college district that establishes such a program is required to negotiate, or meet and confer, to establish a program to provide part-time faculty office hours.
This bill would require each community college district to report, on or before August 15 of each year, the total part-time faculty office hours paid divided by the total part-time faculty office hours taught during the prior fiscal year and post this information on its Internet Web site.
To the extent that the bill would impose new duties on community college districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

87881.5.

SEC. 2.
