CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 888


Introduced by Assembly Member Low

February 16, 2017


An act to add Section 69433.91 to the Education Code, relating to Cal Grants.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 888, as amended, Low. Cal Grants: private postsecondary educational institutions.
The Cal Grant Program establishes the Cal Grant A and B Entitlement Awards, the California Community College Transfer Cal Grant Entitlement Awards, the Competitive Cal Grant A and B Awards, the Cal Grant C Awards, and the Cal Grant T Awards under the administration of the Student Aid Commission, and establishes eligibility requirements for awards under these programs for participating students attending qualifying institutions.
Existing federal law, known as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, prohibits a person, on the basis of sex, from being excluded from participation in, being denied the benefits of, or being subject to discrimination under, any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
This bill would require, commencing in 2018, every private postsecondary educational institution that receives Cal Grant funding to annually report, by on or before July 1 of each year, to the Legislature Legislative Analyst’s Office its student disciplinary actions, including, but not limited to, its rate of expulsion, for the previous academic year, aggregated by the institutional policy violated, and disaggregated, for each policy violated, by the type of disciplinary action taken, whether the disciplined students were Cal Grant recipients, whether the disciplinary action was taken in connection with students who fit one or more of a list of specified categories, and whether the institution has ever applied for, or is in receipt of, an exemption from Title IX. The bill would require, commencing in 2019, the Legislative Analyst’s Office to annually report, on or before January 1 of each year, to the appropriate policy committees of the Legislature the data submitted by these institutions for the previous year, aggregated by faith-based private postsecondary educational institutions and nonfaith-based private postsecondary educational institutions, not including the names of these institutions. The bill would specify that each report submitted pursuant to the bill’s provisions shall not include personally identifiable information about the disciplined students.
