LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1935, as amended, Irwin. Community colleges: tutoring.
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. Under existing law, community college districts throughout the state have established campuses where they provide instruction to students. Existing law establishes a system through which state funds are apportioned to community college districts based on specified formulas. A provision of existing law identifies the noncredit community college courses and classes that are eligible for state apportionment funding.
This bill would provide that supervised tutoring for basic skills, and for degree-applicable and transfer-level courses, as authorized pursuant to regulations adopted by the board of governors by July 31, 2019, is eligible for state apportionment funding.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
