LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1809, Committee on Budget. Higher education trailer bill.
(1) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in this state.
Existing law authorizes the board of governors, to the extent that funds are available, to establish certain internship training programs and to actively support apprenticeship training programs in collaboration with the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations. Existing law requires the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to allocate funds for approved apprenticeship programs in good standing and, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to allocate funds solely for the purposes of reimbursing community colleges.
This bill would authorize, if reimbursement is not claimed pursuant to the above provision relating to apprenticeship program reimbursement, the attendance of apprentices enrolled in any class offered for community college credit by a community college in collaboration with an apprenticeship program sponsor to be reimbursed, as prescribed, as part of a specified budget formula developed by the board of governors. The bill would require, for each community college receiving reimbursement for apprenticeship hours pursuant to this provision, the affected community college district to report to the chancellor specified information for each apportionment period. To the extent that this provision would impose additional duties on community college districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The bill would require the chancellor to report specified information relating to apprenticeship program reimbursements to the California Apprenticeship Council and to consult with the council in annually reviewing reimbursement funding. The bill would require the chancellor and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations, in consultation with the council and the Superintendent of Public Instruction, to develop standard reporting protocols applicable to participating community colleges and local educational agencies contracting with apprenticeship program sponsors that include metrics to measure program efficiency and success.
(2) Existing law provides, until January 1, 2019, that the board of trustees, common council, or other legislative body of a city or the board of trustees of a library district in which a withdrawal from the county free library system becomes effective on or after January 1, 2012, shall comply with specified requirements before entering into a contract to operate the city’s or library district’s library or libraries with a private contractor that will employ library staff to achieve cost savings, subject to specified exceptions.
This bill would delete the repeal date for these provisions, thereby extending operation of these provisions indefinitely.
(3) Existing law establishes a system of public elementary and secondary schools in this state and authorizes local educational agencies throughout the state to operate schools and provide instruction to pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive. Existing law establishes in the State Department of Education a division known as the California State Library.
This bill would create the California Student Author Project as a grant program for the benefit of public school age children from extremely low-income communities. The bill would require the California State Library to provide grant awards to nonprofit organizations, public libraries, and local educational entities, as specified. The bill would require a grant recipient, during the 2019–20 and 2020–21 school years, to establish a literacy program for public school age children who are eligible for free and reduced cost lunch. The bill would require a grant recipient to establish a student author program to provide the participants an opportunity to write, edit, and promote a short story or other forms of literature, and would require a grant recipient to provide regular, sequential student author workshops that parallel or complement school calendars with specified components. The bill would require grant recipients to collect and provide information to the California State Library and require the California State Library, not later than January 1, 2022, to report to the Legislature on the outcomes of the California Student Author Program.
(4) Existing law establishes the California State University, under the administration of the Board of Trustees of the California State University, and the University of California, under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, as 2 of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law requires the California State University, and requests the University of California, to annually report to the Legislature on their respective institutional financial aid programs and to provide preliminary reports on or before January 10 of each year and the final reports on or before March 31 of each year. Existing law requires the preliminary reports to include, among other things, the average and 90th percentile parental income level, expected family contribution, and the financial need of undergraduate need-based student institutional gift aid recipients for the prior 2 academic years.
This bill would delete those preliminary reports and would instead require that the reports due on or before March 31 of each year include the data and information required in those preliminary reports, except for the average and 90th percentile parental income level, expected family contribution, and financial need data, which the bill would delete. The bill would require the reports to include additional information, as specified.
(5) Existing law establishes the California State University, under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, the University of California, under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, and independent institutions of higher education as the 4 segments of postsecondary education in this state. Existing provisions of the Donahoe Higher Education Act set forth the missions and functions of these 4 postsecondary educational segments. The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act encourages community colleges to facilitate the acceptance of credits earned at other community colleges toward the associate degree for transfer. The act also requires the California State University to guarantee admission with junior status to a community college student who meets the requirements for the associate degree for transfer, and provides that admission to the California State University under these provisions does not guarantee admission for specific majors or campuses. Existing law recognizes that the University of California has been working with the California Community Colleges to seek improvements to the transfer process and states the intent of the Legislature that the University of California consider various viable pathways to transfer, including the development of an associate degree for transfer granted by community college districts, as part of this endeavor.
This bill would add provisions to the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act that apply to a private nonprofit postsecondary education institution that chooses to accept students with an associate degree for transfer. The bill would require the Chancellor’s Office of the California Community Colleges and the private nonprofit postsecondary educational institutions that choose to commit to accept a student with an associate degree for transfer, in consultation with specified parties, to develop a student-centered communication and marketing strategy in order to increase the visibility of the associate degree for transfer pathway for all students in California. To the extent that this provision would create new duties for community college districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.
(6) Existing law establishes the maximum tuition award amount for each Cal Grant A and B award for new recipient students attending private nonprofit postsecondary educational institutions at $9,084 for the 2015–16, 2016–17, and 2017–18 award years and $8,056 for the 2018–19 award year and each award year thereafter.
This bill would retain the maximum tuition award amount for each Cal Grant A and B award for new recipient students attending private nonprofit postsecondary educational institutions at $9,084 for the 2018–19 award year. Beginning with the 2019–20 award year, the maximum tuition award would either be $9,084 or $8,056, depending upon whether the number of new unduplicated transfer students accepted by private nonprofit postsecondary educational institutions who have been given associate degree for transfer commitments, as defined, in the prior award year meet or exceed specified targets.
(7) Existing law states the intent of the Legislature that private nonprofit and for-profit postsecondary educational institutions with students receiving Cal Grant awards make good faith efforts to (1) increase the number of low-income resident students enrolled, (2) make the process for transferring from the California Community Colleges easier for resident students, and (3) expand high-quality online education for resident students, as specified.
This bill would instead state the intent of the Legislature that a private nonprofit postsecondary educational institution make a good faith effort to make the process for transferring from the California Community Colleges easier for resident students and a decision determining the maximum award amounts made pursuant to the program for students attending a private nonprofit postsecondary educational institution will be made with consideration of the effort of the institution to make that process easier.
(8) Existing law establishes the California State University, the California Community Colleges, and the University of California as the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law exempts students who have been granted special immigrant visas pursuant to a specified federal statute, or are refugees admitted to the United States under a specified federal statute, and who, upon entering the United States, settled in California, from paying nonresident tuition at the California Community Colleges. Existing law authorizes a community college district to report a student, who is exempt from nonresident tuition under this provision and who is enrolled as a student of that district, as a full-time equivalent student for apportionment purposes.
This bill would exempt students granted special immigrant visas pursuant to an additional federal statute from paying nonresident tuition at the California Community Colleges. To the extent that this bill would place additional requirements on community college districts to exempt those students from nonresident tuition, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(9) Existing law establishes the maximum tuition award amounts for each Cal Grant A and B award for new recipients attending private for-profit postsecondary educational institutions beginning with the 2013–14 award year at $4,000.
Beginning with the 2018–19 award year, the bill would establish a maximum tuition award of $9,084 for attending private for-profit postsecondary educational institutions accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, unless otherwise specified in the Budget Act of 2018.
(10) Existing law provides that any California resident is entitled to a Cal Grant B Entitlement award, and requires the commission to allocate that award, if certain criteria are met, including that the student submit a complete financial aid application, submitted or postmarked no later than March 2 of the academic year of high school graduation or its equivalent for the award year immediately following the academic year of high school graduation or its equivalent, or no later than March 2 of the academic year following high school graduation or its equivalent for the 2nd award year following the year of high school graduation or its equivalent.
This bill would provide alternative deadlines for submitting a complete financial aid application for a student who is a current or former foster youth, who is attending a qualifying institution that offers baccalaureate degrees or is attending a California community college, and has not yet reached 26 years of age as of July 1 of the initial award year.
Existing law authorizes the renewal of Cal Grant B awards for a total of the equivalent of 4 years of full-time attendance in an undergraduate program, provided that minimum financial need, as defined, continues to exist, subject to certain exceptions.
This bill would authorize the renewal of Cal Grant B awards, for a current or former foster youth, for a total of the equivalent of 8 years of full-time attendance in an undergraduate program, provided that minimum financial need continues to exist.
(11) Under existing law, the Middle Class Scholarship Program provides that an undergraduate student enrolled at the University of California or the California State University, or enrolled in upper division coursework in a community college baccalaureate program, and meeting certain requirements, is eligible for a scholarship award that, combined with other federal, state, and institutionally administered grants and fee waivers, totals up to 40% of the systemwide tuition and fees.
Existing law transfers $74,000,000 from the General Fund to the Middle Class Scholarship Fund for the 2016–17 fiscal year, $96,000,000 from the General Fund to the Middle Class Scholarship Fund for the 2017–18 fiscal year, $117,000,000 from the General Fund to the Middle Class Scholarship Fund for the 2018–19 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, and appropriates those sums to the Student Aid Commission for purposes of the scholarship program.
The bill would decrease the existing appropriation for the 2016–17 fiscal year from $74,000,000 to $71,244,000, would increase the existing appropriation for the 2017–18 fiscal year from $96,000,000 to $99,797,000, would decrease the existing appropriation for the 2018–19 fiscal year from $117,000,000 to $101,380,000, and would maintain the existing appropriation for the 2019–20 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter at $117,000,000.
(12) Existing law authorizes the governing board of a community college district to enter into a College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) partnership with the governing board of a school district with the goal of developing seamless pathways from high school to community college for career technical education or preparation for transfer, improving high school graduation rates, or helping high school pupils achieve college and career readiness. Existing law requires the partnership agreement to outline the terms of the partnership, as specified, and to establish protocols for information sharing, joint facilities use, and parental consent for high school pupils to enroll in community college courses. These provisions are repealed on January 1, 2022.
This bill would authorize the governing body of a charter school to enter into a CCAP partnership agreement with the governing board of a community college district pursuant to these provisions.
Existing law authorizes a community college district to limit enrollment in a community college course solely to eligible high school pupils if the course is offered at a high school campus, as provided.
This bill would authorize a community college district to limit enrollment in a community college course solely to eligible high school pupils if the course is offered at a high school campus, either in person or using an online platform, as provided.
Existing law requires each CCAP partnership affected community college district and school district to annually report specified information to the office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges.
This bill would require this report to include the total number of full-time equivalent students served online generated by CCAP partnership community college district participants.
Existing law provides that attendance of a high school pupil at a community college as a special part-time or full-time student pursuant to a CCAP is authorized attendance for which the community college shall be credited or reimbursed, as provided. Existing law requires a charter school to offer, at minimum, a specified number of minutes to pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive.
This bill would provide that, for purposes of calculating classroom-based average daily attendance for classroom-based instruction apportionments, at least 80% of the instructional time offered by a charter school pursuant to an authorized CCAP partnership agreement shall be at the schoolsite, and the charter school shall require the attendance of a pupil for a minimum of 50% of the minimum instructional time required to be offered, as specified, if the pupil is also a special part-time student enrolled in a community college pursuant to the partnership agreement and the pupil will receive academic credit upon satisfactory completion of enrolled courses.
(13) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law requires the board of governors to appoint a chief executive officer, to be known as the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges. Existing law establishes community college districts, administered by governing boards, throughout the state, and authorizes these districts to provide instruction to students at the community college campuses maintained by the districts.
Upon appropriation by the Legislature for its purposes, this bill would establish a grant program, under the administration of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, to create new and innovative apprenticeship opportunities in priority and emerging industry sectors or areas in which apprenticeship training is not fully established or does not exist.
(14) Existing law requires, except where provided, the governing board of a community college district to grant without charge the use of any college facility or grounds under its control, when an alternative location is not available, to nonprofit organizations and clubs and associations organized for general character building or welfare purposes. Existing law requires, for entertainment or a meeting where an admission fee is charged or a contribution is solicited and the net receipts of the admission fees or contributions are not expended for the welfare of the students of the district or for charitable purposes, a charge of equal to fair rental value for the use of the college facilities, property, and grounds, as determined by the governing board of the district.
This bill would instead require that, for entertainment or a meeting where an admission fee is charged or a contribution is solicited and the net receipts of the admission fees or contributions are not expended for the welfare of the students of the district or for charitable purposes, a charge of not less than fair rental value is to be levied for the use of the college facilities, property, and grounds as determined by the governing board of the district.
(15) Existing law requires that the accounting system used to record the financial affairs of a community college district be in accord with the definitions, instructions, and procedures published in the California Community Colleges Budget and Accounting Manual as approved and furnished by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges. Existing law requires the governing board of each community college district to provide for an annual audit of all funds, books, and accounts of the district in accordance with regulations of the board of governors. Existing law requires the board of governors, in cooperation with, and upon approval by, the Department of Finance, to prescribe the statements and other information to be included in the audit reports filed with the state and to develop audit procedures relative to specified formal actions taken by community college districts with respect to encouraging the retirement of academic employees and the granting of service credits.
This bill would strike the requirement that the Department of Finance cooperate and provide approval when the board of governors prescribes the statements and other information to be included in audit reports and develops audit procedures.
(16) Existing law requires that adult schools and evening high schools consist of classes for adults. Existing law authorizes minors to be admitted into those classes pursuant to policies adopted by the governing board of the school district if those minors meet certain eligibility requirements.
Existing law creates the Adult Education Block Grant Program under the administration of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Under this program, the chancellor and Superintendent, with the advice of the executive director of the State Board of Education, are required to divide the state into adult education regions and approve one adult education consortium in each adult education region. Existing law also requires, as a condition of receipt of an apportionment of funds from this program for a fiscal year, that members of a consortium approve an adult education plan, as specified.
This bill instead would require, commencing with the 2019–20 fiscal year, as a condition of receipt of an apportionment of funds from the program for a fiscal year, that members of a consortium approve a consortium-approved 3-year adult education plan that addresses a 3-year fiscal planning cycle. The bill would require the plan to be updated at least once each year, as specified. The bill also would also provide, for the 2018–19 fiscal year, as a condition of receipt of an apportionment of funds from the program, the members of a consortium to have a consortium-approved adult education plan that meets specified requirements.

Existing law requires funds apportioned for the program to be used only for the support of specified programs, including, among others, programs in elementary and secondary basic skills and programs for adults that are primarily related to the entry or reentry into the workforce.
This bill would additionally include the indirect costs of the program’s consortium members, as specified, among the purposes that funds apportioned for the program may be used.
(18) Existing law establishes a system of public elementary and secondary education in this state. Under this system, local educational agencies throughout the state provide instruction to pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive. Existing law also establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law authorizes the California Community Colleges to grant associate degrees.
This bill would establish a grant program as a public-private partnership between school districts, community college districts, and private businesses for purposes of preparing California students for high-skill jobs of the future in the STEM field. The bill would specify the core benefits of the program for participating students in grades 9 to 14, including an opportunity to earn an associate of science degree in a high-tech field or an associate degree for transfer in a STEM field.
This bill would appropriate $10,000,000 from the General Fund to the chancellor’s office for this program.
(19) Existing law establishes the California State University, under the administration of the Board of Trustees of the California State University, as one of the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in California. Existing law requires the trustees to appoint a chief executive officer, known as the Chancellor of the California State University.
This bill would require the Office of the Chancellor of the California State University to require each California State University campus to prepare an annual report on student admissions and impaction policies, as specified. The bill would require the chancellor’s office to compile each of these reports and submit a systemwide report to the Legislature and the Department of Finance on or before May 1, 2020, and each May 1 annually thereafter. The bill would make its provisions inoperative on July 1, 2023.
(20) Existing law establishes the University of California as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. The California Constitution provides that the University of California constitutes a public trust administered by the regents of the University of California, a corporation in the form of a board, with full powers of organization and government, subject to legislative control only for specified purposes.
This bill would request the University of California, by April 1 of each year, to report to the Legislature on the systemwide and presidential initiatives of the university, including a description of each initiative and a justification for the initiative that explains how it furthers the mission of the university, and the total expenditures and revenue sources for each initiative.

(23) The Public Employees’ Medical and Hospital Care Act authorizes an employee or annuitant, as those terms are defined, of the state to enroll in a health benefit plan approved or maintained by the Board of Administration of the Public Employees’ Retirement System. The act generally requires the state and each employee or annuitant to contribute a portion of the cost of providing the benefit coverage afforded under the approved health benefit plan in which the employee or annuitant is enrolled.

The State Employees’ Dental Care Act authorizes the state, through the Department of Human Resources, the Trustees of the California State University, or the Regents of the University of California, to contract with carriers for dental care plans for employees, annuitants, and eligible family members, as provided. The act generally authorizes a person who was enrolled in a dental care plan at the time he or she became an annuitant under state or federal provisions to continue his or her enrollment. The act prohibits specified employees from receiving an employer contribution for these benefits for annuitants unless the person is credited with 10 or more years, or 15 or more years, of state service, depending on date of first hire.
This bill, with respect to both the Public Employees’ Medical and Hospital Care Act and the State Employees’ Dental Care Act, would additionally prohibit an employee of the California State University who is first employed by the California State University and becomes a member of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System on or after July 1, 2018, and who is represented by California State University Bargaining Unit 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, or 10, from receiving any portion of the employer contribution for these benefits for annuitants unless the employee has 10 years of credited state service at the time of retirement. The bill would limit its application to employees of the California State University who retire for service. The operation of these provisions would be contingent upon their adoption by regulation of the trustees or, if required, in a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to specified law.
(24) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. The board appoints a chief executive officer known as the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges. Under existing law, community college districts are authorized, among other things, to maintain and operate campuses, employ faculty and other employees, and provide instruction to students.

Existing law requires the chancellor to report to the Legislature, on or before April 1, 2019, regarding grant award recipients for the 2017–18 award year, as specified.
This bill would repeal the existing Community College Completion Grant Program and instead, commencing with the 2018–19 academic year, would establish a new grant program, which would require participating community colleges to award grants to their students who meet specified requirements, contingent on funding being made available. The bill would require the chancellor to report to the Legislature, on or before April 1, 2020, regarding grant award recipients for the 2018–19 award year, as specified. The bill would make other conforming changes.
(25) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state.

Existing law requires, as a condition for receiving Student Success and Support Program funding, that the governing board of each community college district maintain a student equity plan, as specified.
Existing law requires the student equity plan to include, for each community college in the community college district, campus-based research as to the extent of student equity by gender and for each of several specified categories of students. Existing law also requires the student equity plan to include whether significant underrepresentation of any of these categories of students is found to exist in terms of access to, and completion of, basic skills, career technical education and workforce training, and transfer courses. Existing law requires a community college district to update the plan every 3 academic years.
This bill would establish the Student Equity and Achievement Program and would state the intent of the Legislature that funds for the program support the California Community Colleges in implementing activities and practices pursuant to the California Community College Guided Pathways Grant Program and activities and practices that advance the systemwide goal to eliminate achievement gaps for students from traditionally underrepresented groups.

The bill would enact other related provisions.
(27) Existing law prohibits adult education programs, courses, and classes from being used to supplant the regular high school curriculum for high school pupils enrolled in adult education programs, courses, and classes.

Existing law requires the board of governors to develop criteria and standards, in accordance with specified statewide minimum requirements, for the purposes of making the annual budget request for the California Community Colleges to the Governor and the Legislature, and allocating state general apportionment revenues. Those statewide minimum requirements include, among other things, a requirement that the calculations of each community college district’s revenue level for each fiscal year be based on specified criteria, with revenue adjustments being made for increases or decreases in full-time equivalent students and for other specified purposes.
This bill would revise and recast those provisions providing for allocating state general apportionment revenues, except for allocating revenues provided pursuant to Proposition 55 and computing allocations for noncredit instruction and career development and college preparation full-time equivalent students (FTES), to community college districts by, among other things, (1) setting new rates for the base allocations, (2) providing supplemental allocations based on the number of students served that receive Board of Governor fee waivers, are exempt from nonresident tuition pursuant to specified provisions, or receive financial aid under the Federal Pell Grant program, (3) providing student success allocations, as prescribed, and (4) establishing hold harmless provisions to ensure a minimum level of funding to community college districts, as provided, including provisions to allocate different apportionments to the San Francisco Community College District and the Compton Community College District through the 2023–24 fiscal year.

By imposing additional duties on community college districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would require the chancellor’s office, on or before October 15, 2019, and each year thereafter, to report to the Legislature on the course sections and FTES added at each community college that received apportionment growth funding in the prior fiscal year, including the number of course sections and if any course sections and FTES were added that are within the primary missions of the segment, as defined, and those that are not within the primary missions of the segment.

 Part 46.5 (commencing with Section 75000) is added to Division 7 of Title 3 of the Education Code, to read:

PART 46.5. California Online Community College Act

75000.
 (a) This part shall be known, and may be cited, as the California Online Community College Act.
(b) The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(1) According to the United States Census Bureau, 2011–15 American Community Survey data, there are 2.5 million Californians between 25 and 34 years of age whose highest educational attainment is either high school or some college. Of this group, 80 percent are working, and nearly half are Hispanic. The public segments of higher education have traditionally not offered courses that are readily accessible to these Californians. Working adults should have access to high-quality, affordable, and flexible opportunities to pursue postsecondary education that does not conflict with their work and familial obligations.
(2) California recognizes the dedication of every faculty member, classified staff member, manager, and administrator in the Community College system toward supporting the success of California’s community college students. As dedicated leaders, innovators, and educators, faculty will be integral to the success of the California Online Community College and improving the economic prosperity of numerous Californians.
(3) Flexible educational options are also critical to those displaced by job loss triggered by recessions. Californians have generally had a difficult time recovering from the Great Recession, but those with an associate’s degree earned higher wages and fared better in the recovery than those with only a high school degree or some college. Labor force participation remains low among the working age population, and economists believe this is partially due to a skills mismatch. Furthermore, according to the Economic Policy Institute, 60 percent of jobs created during the economic recovery from 2010 to 2014 went to men versus 40 percent of jobs that went to women.
(4) Immigrants, military veterans, and incarcerated or formerly incarcerated individuals could also benefit from the flexibility created by an affordable, high-quality online education that would allow them to improve their skills and advance their employment opportunities or stay relevant in their careers.
(5) Online education is showing a trend of improving course success rates over time. Research indicates the importance of institutional factors, such as course design, institutional support, effective student orientation and support services, and the development of strategies to promote regular interaction, in contributing to online course success. Studies also indicate that older students generally perform better in online courses than younger students.
(6) The cost for Californians to access online credentials, certificates, and associate’s degrees at nonpublic or out-of-state institutions is typically much higher—as much as seven to nine times higher per unit—than at a California community college. An affordable, high-quality, and flexible public online college provides an important alternative to other nonpublic online education options.
(7) According to the Public Utilities Commission, approximately 95 percent of California households have wired broadband availability. Recent legislation authorized additional funding for broadband and establishment of regional goals intended to reduce urban-rural disparities in broadband access. Additionally, the budget provides funding for public libraries to expand access to broadband.
(8) To ensure the future economic resiliency of California’s communities, the existing higher education infrastructure must be augmented with learning options that are focused on working learners, including options that are affordable, designed to be flexible for the schedule of working adults, and competency-based to facilitate portability of employable skills. With an open access mission, the California Community Colleges are positioned to work with a diverse population to increase wages and improve economic and social mobility in a rapidly changing economy.

75001.
 (a) (1) The California Online Community College is hereby established.
(2) The California Online Community College shall be under the administration of the board of governors.
(3) The California Online Community College shall fulfill the purposes of this part, which includes the creation of an organized system of accessible, flexible, and high-quality online content, courses, and programs focused on providing industry-valued credentials compatible with the vocational and educational needs of Californians who are not currently accessing higher education. These courses and programs shall lead to a pathway offered at a traditional community college.
(4) The college shall be considered a district and community college within the California Community Colleges system and the state’s public system of higher education.
(5) For purposes of Section 14 of Article IX and Sections 8 and 8.5 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, “community college districts” shall include the California Online Community College established pursuant to paragraph (1).
(b) The college shall be guided by principles and procedures developed by the chancellor’s office and established by the board of governors. These guiding principles shall include all of the following:
(1) Offering working adults additional access to affordable, quality higher education opportunities with labor market value, especially industry-valued credentials based on competencies leading to employment, earnings gain, or upward mobility in the workplace, and not just courses leading to degrees and certificates.
(2) Providing working adults with the necessary conditions for success with flexible course scheduling, start and stop-off times, technology-enabled support communities to deepen engagement and foster social belonging, and short-term credentials as demonstrations of academic progress.
(3) Supporting student success by developing and implementing innovative teaching and student support methodologies and technologies, including leveraging student data to improve teaching and learning and to support individual student progression, providing quality onboarding of students to support their career exploration, goal-setting, educational planning, and support needs, and leveraging relevant technology resources where possible.
(4) Enhancing systemwide student success efforts by using the college’s innovative teaching and student support methodologies and technologies to inform professional development opportunities available to the rest of the community college system.
(5) Ensuring faculty roles are based on the skills needs of the college, such as online instructors, course developers, assessment developers, student mentors, reviewers, and 24-hour virtual classroom support, and ensuring flexible hiring processes that emphasize use of part-time and full-time faculty with field expertise to support emerging programs and shifts in labor market demand.
(6) Addressing barriers faced by working adult students to access higher education, including, but not necessarily limited to, financial aid support, dealing with working learners’ prior educational debts that may impede release of transcripts and credits, pathway navigational help, contextualized academic preparation, navigation of family needs and other supports, and coaching and mentoring.
(7) Aligning the college’s efforts with the broader goals outlined in the California Community Colleges system’s Vision for Success, or other strategic visions outlined by the board of governors, and holding the college accountable for its students’ outcomes and ensuring improved data collection on employment outcomes.
(8) Offering working adults additional access to affordable, high-quality higher education opportunities with labor market value that lead to additional educational opportunities provided by either the California Online Community College or by another California community college.
(c) The college may collaborate and work closely with other agencies, industry partners, and experts to ensure the success of the college, including, but not necessarily limited to, all of the following:
(1) Students the college serves, to ensure the college meets their needs.
(2) Community-based organizations, to provide student outreach to working learners across California.
(3) Statewide public agencies, such as the State Department of Social Services, the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency, and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, to incorporate strategies to provide immigrants and other groups with barriers to employment with educational opportunities.
(4) Representatives from the labor community, to provide higher wage jobs for journey-level workers or augment apprenticeship training.
(5) Industry and employer partners, including statewide public agency employers, state associations, large employers, and regional consortia of employers, to inform content that is driven by the demands of the labor market and relevant to regional workforce needs.
(6) The California Community Colleges, to leverage their existing career technical education regional consortia, the Strong Workforce Program regional consortia, and adult education regional consortia.
(7) Two-year and four-year institutions or a consortia, to promote recognition of student skills and knowledge toward degree pathways as well as a way to increase student access and transfers to additional higher educational opportunities.
(d) The college shall conduct all of the following activities:
(1) The college shall offer at least three program pathways within the first three years of program implementation, developed exclusively to serve the population of students not yet accessing postsecondary education or without their first industry-valued credential. The college shall create new programs that are not duplicative of programs offered at other local community colleges.
(2) To ensure student success, the college shall also do all of the following:
(A) Establish competency-based educational opportunities that recognize students’ prior learning and help students advance toward a credential. Competencies shall be established with the advice of appropriate faculty and employers, and shall be focused on knowledge and skills a student must demonstrate to pass a course and to earn a credential. Examples of prior learning include prior military service, registered apprenticeship training, industry-recognized certifications, or experience from other careers. Assessments shall be developed to enable students to demonstrate mastery and shall be mapped to the competencies.
(B) Supplement registered apprenticeship programs and the California Apprenticeship Initiative training as appropriate, and create apprenticeship instructor upskilling training, courses, and programs that are valued by the labor and employer communities.
(C) Identify opportunities to develop short-term, stackable credentials and industry certifications with labor market value. The college shall also leverage existing articulation agreements and develop new articulation agreements with other California Community Colleges, the California State University, the University of California, and other accredited public and independent institutions to facilitate stackability into credit-bearing courses and pathways.
(D) Develop, adapt, or apply technology to meet the ongoing needs of students.
(E) Develop a Research and Development Unit that utilizes current and future learning sciences technology, assesses data metrics within the college’s technological infrastructure to gauge student progress in a course or pathway, informs instructional and support strategies, and improves the functionality of the underlying technology used by the college.
(F) Redesign transcripts in a digital, verifiable format that links coursework, credentials, and competencies to track a student’s entire body of learning in one document. Any redesigned transcript technology shall be a part of the integrated technology portfolio of the chancellor’s office and made available to any campus of the California Community Colleges.
(G) Identify shortcomings in the student experience for unserved and underserved students and develop technological and programmatic solutions to address the gap.
(H) Distribute gains in data and learning science and effective technology-enabled tools and resources throughout the California Community Colleges.

 Section 84750.5 of the Education Code is amended to read:

84750.5.
 (a) The board of governors, in accordance with the statewide requirements contained in paragraphs (1) to (9), inclusive, of subdivision (d), and in consultation with institutional representatives of the California Community Colleges and statewide faculty and staff organizations, so as to ensure their participation in the development and review of policy proposals, shall develop criteria and standards for the purpose of making the annual budget request for the California Community Colleges to the Governor and the Legislature, and for the purpose of allocating the state general apportionment revenues.
(b) In developing the criteria and standards, the board of governors shall use and strongly consider the recommendations and work product of the “System Office Recommendations Based on the Report of the Work Group on Community College Finance” that was adopted by the board at its meeting of March 7, 2005. The board of governors shall complete the development of these criteria and standards, accompanied by the necessary procedures, processes, and formulas for using its criteria and standards, by March 1, 2007, and shall submit on or before that date a report on these items to the Legislature and the Governor.
(c) (1) It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this section to improve the equity and predictability of general apportionment and growth funding for community college districts in order that the districts may more readily plan and implement instruction and related programs, more readily serve students according to the policies of the state’s master plan for higher education, and enhance the quality of instruction and related services for students.
(2) It is the intent of the Legislature to determine the amounts to be appropriated for purposes of this section through the annual Budget Act. Nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting the authority either of the Governor to propose, or the Legislature to approve, appropriations for California Community Colleges programs or purposes.
(d) The board of governors shall develop the criteria and standards within the following statewide minimum requirements:
(1) The calculations of each community college district’s revenue level for each fiscal year shall be based on the level of general apportionment revenues, state and local, the community college district received for the prior year plus any amount attributed to a deficit from the adopted standards to be developed pursuant to this section, with revenue adjustments being made for increases or decreases in full-time equivalent students (FTES), for equalization of funding per credit FTES, for necessary alignment of funding per FTES between credit and noncredit programs, for inflation, and for other purposes authorized by law.
(2) Commencing with the 2006–07 fiscal year, the funding mechanism developed pursuant to this section shall recognize the need for community college districts to receive an annual allocation based on the number of colleges and comprehensive centers in the community college district. In addition to this basic allocation, the marginal amount of credit revenue allocated per FTES shall be funded at a rate not less than four thousand three hundred sixty-seven dollars ($4,367), as adjusted for the change in the cost-of-living in subsequent annual budget acts.
(A) To the extent that the Budget Act of 2006 contains an appropriation of one hundred fifty-nine million four hundred thirty-eight thousand dollars ($159,438,000) for community college equalization, the Legislature finds and declares that community college equalization for credit FTES has been effectively accomplished as of March 31, 2007.
(B) The chancellor shall develop criteria for the allocation of one-time grants for those community college districts that would have qualified for more equalization under prior law than pursuant to this section and the Budget Act of 2006, and for those community college districts that would have qualified for more funding under a proposed rural college access grant than pursuant to this section and the Budget Act of 2006, as determined by the chancellor. Appropriations for the one-time grants shall be provided pursuant to paragraph (24) of subdivision (a) of Section 43 of Chapter 79 of the Statutes of 2006.

(5) Except as otherwise provided by statute, current categorical programs providing direct services to students, including extended opportunity programs and services, and disabled students programs and services, shall continue to be funded separately through the annual Budget Act, and shall not be assumed under the budget formula otherwise specified by this section.
(6) For credit and noncredit instruction, changes in FTES shall result in adjustments in community college district revenues as follows:
(A) Increases in FTES shall result in an increase in revenues in the year of the increase and at the amount per FTES provided for in paragraph (2) or (3), as appropriate, including any cost-of-living adjustment authorized by statute or by the annual Budget Act.
(B) Decreases in FTES shall result in revenue reductions beginning in the year following the initial year of decrease in FTES, and at the district’s marginal funding per FTES.
(C) Community college districts shall be entitled to the restoration of any reductions in apportionment revenue due to decreases in FTES during the three years following the initial year of decrease in FTES if there is a subsequent increase in FTES.
(7) Revenue adjustments shall be made to reflect cost changes, using the same inflation adjustment as required for school districts pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Section 42238.02. These revenue adjustments shall be made to the college and center basic allocations, credit and noncredit FTES funding rates, and career development and college preparation FTES funding rates.
(8) The statewide requested increase in budgeted workload FTES shall be based, at a minimum, on the sum of the following computations:
(A) Determination of an equally weighted average of the rate of change in the state’s population of persons between the ages of 19 and 24 and the rate of change in the state’s population of persons between the ages of 25 and 65, both as determined by the Department of Finance’s Demographic Research Unit as determined for the preceding fiscal year.
(B) To the extent the state’s unemployment rate exceeds 5 percent for the most recently completed fiscal year, that positive difference shall be added to the rate computed in subparagraph (A). In no event shall that positive difference exceed 2 percent.
(C) The chancellor may also add to the amounts calculated pursuant to subparagraphs (A) and (B) the number of FTES in the areas of transfer, vocational education, and basic skills that were unfunded in the current fiscal year. For this purpose, the following computation shall be determined for each community college district, and a statewide total shall be calculated:
(i) Establish the base level of FTES earned in the prior fiscal year for transfer courses consisting of courses meeting the California State University breadth or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum requirements or major course prerequisites accepted by the University of California or the California State University.
(ii) Establish the base level of FTES earned in the prior fiscal year for vocational education courses consisting of courses defined by the chancellor’s office Student Accountability Model codes A and B that are consistent with the courses used for measuring success in this program area under the accountability system established pursuant to Section 84754.5.

(vi) FTES in transfer, vocational education, and basic skills that are in excess of the total calculated pursuant to clause (v), shall be considered in excess of the maintenance of effort level, and shall be eligible for overcap growth funding if the community college district exceeds its overall funded FTES.
(vii) In no event shall the amount calculated pursuant to clause (vi) exceed the total unfunded FTES for that fiscal year. To the extent the computation specified in subdivision (c) requires the reporting of additional data by community college districts, that reporting shall be a condition of the receipt of apportionment for growth pursuant to this section and those funds shall be available to offset any and all costs of providing the data.
(9) Except as specifically provided in statute, regulations of the board of governors for determining and allocating the state general apportionment to the community college districts shall not require community college district governing boards to expend the allocated revenues in specified categories of operation or according to the workload measures developed by the board of governors.
(e) (1) The Chancellor of the Community Colleges shall develop, and the board of governors shall adopt, a revised apportionment growth formula for use commencing with the 2015–16 fiscal year. The chancellor shall allocate apportionments pursuant to the revised formula only after the revised formula, and any formulas for adjustment pursuant to paragraph (2), have been adopted by the board of governors. The revised apportionment growth formula shall support the primary missions of the segment, and shall be based on each community’s need for access to the community colleges, as determined by local demographics. In developing the revised formula, the chancellor shall consider multiple factors in determining need; however, the primary factors shall be:
(A) (i) The number of persons under 25 years of age without a college degree, within a community college district’s boundaries, and the number of persons 25 to 64 years of age, inclusive, without a college degree, within a community college district’s boundaries.
(ii) Notwithstanding clause (i), the chancellor may use alternative age ranges depending on the availability of data.
(B) The number of persons who are unemployed, have limited English skills, who are in poverty, or who exhibit other signs of being disadvantaged, as determined by the chancellor, within a community college district’s boundaries.
(2) Beginning with the 2016–17 fiscal year, the chancellor shall adjust upward the need determination based on each community college’s effectiveness in serving residents of neighborhoods, within or outside of the community college district’s boundaries, that exhibit the highest levels of need in the state.
(3) The chancellor shall calculate each community college district’s proportionate share of the statewide need for access to the community colleges based on the application of this formula described in paragraph (1), as adjusted pursuant to paragraph (2).
(4) The chancellor shall calculate the difference between each community college district’s proportionate share of the statewide need for access to the community colleges, as calculated pursuant to paragraph (3), and its current proportionate share of statewide enrollment in the community colleges.
(5) (A) Until a community college district reaches its highest level of apportionment revenues previously received, its apportionment revenues shall be eligible to increase by the lesser of 1 percent of its current apportionment base, or one-half of the statewide growth allocation on a proportionate basis, regardless of need.
(B) After a community college district reaches its highest level of apportionment revenues previously received, it is eligible to increase its apportionment revenues by the lesser of one-half of 1 percent of its current apportionment base, or one-quarter of the statewide growth allocation on a proportionate basis, regardless of its need.
(6) The remainder of the apportionment growth funding shall be allocated to allow each community college district to grow its apportionment revenues based on its relative share of the difference between the amounts calculated in paragraph (4), up to a maximum of its apportionment base for the preceding fiscal year appropriate to ensure that community college district is advancing the primary missions of the segment. The maximum established by the chancellor shall not be less than 5 percent nor greater than 10 percent of a community college district’s apportionment base for the preceding fiscal year.
(7) Unless otherwise agreed upon by the board of governors, apportionment reductions shall be allocated proportionally based on the most recent levels of apportionment revenues.
(8) (A) It is the intent of the Legislature, consistent with direction provided in the 2014–15 Budget Act, that apportionment growth funding be expended for purposes of increasing the number of FTES in courses or programs that support the primary missions of the segment.
(B) (i) Notwithstanding Section 10231.5 of the Government Code, on or before October 15, 2015, and each year thereafter, the chancellor shall report to the Legislature on the course sections and FTES added at each community college that received apportionment growth funding in the prior fiscal year, including the number of course sections and if any course sections and FTES were added that are within the primary missions of the segment and those that are not within the primary missions of the segment.
(ii) A report submitted to the Legislature pursuant to clause (i) shall be submitted in compliance with Section 9795 of the Government Code.
(C) For purposes of this section, “primary missions of the segment” means credit courses and those noncredit courses specified in paragraphs (2) to (6), inclusive, of subdivision (a) of Section 84757.
(f) (1) It is the intent of the Legislature to allow for changes to the criteria and standards developed pursuant to subdivisions (a) to (d), inclusive, in order to recognize increased operating costs and to improve instruction.
(2) (A) If the annual budget act identifies funds appropriated specifically for the purposes of this subdivision, the chancellor shall adjust the budget request formula to allocate those funds without altering any of the adjustments described in subdivision (d). At least 30 days before allocating any state general apportionment revenues using a budget request formula revised pursuant to this subdivision, the chancellor shall submit to the Department of Finance and the Legislature a description of the specific adjustments made to the budget request formula.
(B) A report to the Legislature pursuant to subparagraph (A) shall be submitted in compliance with Section 9795 of the Government Code.
(g) Notwithstanding Subchapter 1 (commencing with Section 51000) of Chapter 2 of Division 6 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations and Section 84751, the chancellor shall allocate the ongoing funds first appropriated pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (e) of provision (2) of Item 6870-101-0001 of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2015 (Chapters 10 and 11, Statutes of 2015) to all community college districts, including districts that have offsetting local revenues that exceed the funding calculated pursuant to the district’s budget formula, on a per FTES basis by modifying each district’s budget formula pursuant to this section. Any revisions to the budget formula made for the purposes of this subdivision shall be made and reported consistent with the requirements of subdivision (f).
(h) Commencing with the 2018–19 fiscal year, this section shall only be used to allocate revenue pursuant to subparagraph (A) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution, to compute allocations for noncredit instruction and career development and college FTES, and to compute allocations to community college districts for fiscal years prior to the 2018–19 fiscal year.

(1) This section applies to each redevelopment project area created pursuant to a redevelopment plan that contains the provisions required by Section 33670 and is created pursuant to this article. All the amounts calculated pursuant to this section shall be calculated after the amount required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund pursuant to Sections 33334.2, 33334.3, and 33334.6, as modified by Section 33492.76, has been deducted from the total amount of tax-increment funds received by the agency in the applicable fiscal year.
(2) The payments made pursuant to this section are in addition to any amounts the school district or districts and community college district or districts receive pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 33670. The agency shall reduce its payments pursuant to this section to an affected school or community college district by any amount the agency has paid, directly or indirectly, pursuant to Section 33445, 33445.5, or 33446, or any provision of law other than this section for, or in connection with, a public facility owned or leased by that affected school or community college district.

(D) Determined by a local educational agency to be of benefit to the project area.
(b) Commencing with the first fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency created pursuant to this article shall pay to each affected school and community college district an amount equal to the product of 25 percent times the percentage share of total property taxes collected that are allocated to each affected school or community college district, including any amount allocated to each district pursuant to Sections 97.03 and 97.035 of the Revenue and Taxation Code times the total of the tax increments received by the agency after the amount required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund has been deducted.
(c) Commencing with the 11th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency created pursuant to this article shall pay to each affected school and community college district, in addition to the amounts paid pursuant to subdivision (b), an amount equal to the product of 21 percent times the percentage share of total property taxes collected that are allocated to each affected school or community college district, including any amount allocated to each district pursuant to Sections 97.03 and 97.035 of the Revenue and Taxation Code times the total of the first adjusted tax increments received by the agency after the amount required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund has been deducted. The first adjusted tax increments received by the agency shall be calculated by applying the tax rate against the amount of assessed value by which the current year assessed value exceeds the first adjusted base year assessed value. The first adjusted base year assessed value is the assessed value of the project area in the 10th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increment.
(d) Commencing with the 31st fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments and continuing through the last fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments, a redevelopment agency shall pay to the affected school and community college districts, in addition to the amounts paid pursuant to subdivisions (b) and (c), an amount equal to 14 percent times the percentage share of total property taxes collected that are allocated to each affected school or community college district, including any amount allocated to each district pursuant to Sections 97.03 and 97.035 of the Revenue and Taxation Code times the total of the second adjusted tax increments received by the agency after the amount required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund has been deducted. The second adjusted tax increments received by the agency shall be calculated by applying the tax rate against the amount of assessed value by which the current year assessed value exceeds the second adjusted base year assessed value. The second adjusted base year assessed value is the assessed value of the project area in the 30th fiscal year in which the agency receives tax increments.
(e) (1) The Legislature finds and declares both of the following:
(A) The payments made pursuant to this section are necessary in order to alleviate the financial burden and detriment that affected school and community college districts may incur as a result of the adoption of a redevelopment plan, and payments made pursuant to this section will benefit redevelopment project areas.
(B) The payments made pursuant to this section are the exclusive payments that are required to be made by a redevelopment agency to affected school and community college districts during the term of a redevelopment plan.
(2) Notwithstanding any other law, a redevelopment agency shall not be required, either directly or indirectly, as a measure to mitigate a significant environmental effect or as part of any settlement agreement or judgment brought in any action to contest the validity of a redevelopment plan pursuant to Section 33501, to make any other payments to affected school or community college districts, or to pay for public facilities that will be owned or leased to an affected school or community college district.
