CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 1091


Introduced by Senator Portantino

February 19, 2020


An act to add Article 6 (commencing with Section 32297) to Chapter 2.5 of Part 19 of Division 1 of Title 1 of the Education Code, relating to school safety.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1091, as introduced, Portantino. School safety: mandatory interagency cross-reporting.
The Interagency School Safety Demonstration Act of 1985 establishes the School/Law Enforcement Partnership, composed of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Attorney General, and requires the partnership to establish a statewide school safety cadre for the purpose of facilitating interagency coordination and collaboration to reduce, among other things, school crime.
This bill would require the partnership to develop a process and framework that would require mandatory interagency cross-reporting between school districts, county offices of education, and law enforcement agencies of threats of serious school crimes, including, but not necessarily limited to, school shootings, hate crimes, vandalism, drug and alcohol use, gang membership, and gang violence, that would trigger immediate intervention. By requiring additional reporting by local agencies, the bill would impose 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.

 Article 6 (commencing with Section 32297) is added to Chapter 2.5 of Part 19 of Division 1 of Title 1 of the Education Code, to read:

32297.
 The partnership, in coordination and collaboration with the statewide school safety cadre established pursuant to Section 32270, school districts, county offices of education, agencies serving youth, allied agencies, community-based organizations, and law enforcement agencies, shall develop a process and framework that would require mandatory interagency cross-reporting between school districts, county offices of education, and law enforcement agencies of threats of serious school crimes, including, but not necessarily limited to, school shootings, hate crimes, vandalism, drug and alcohol use, gang membership, and gang violence, that would trigger immediate intervention.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
