LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2147, as introduced, Chávez. School operations: continuous school programs.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district, after notification to the Superintendent of Public Instruction, to establish and operate in one or more schools within the district a continuous school program conducted throughout the entire school year. However, if the governing board of a school district intends to operate a continuous school program in a manner that requires any pupil to enroll in the program, existing law requires the governing board, not later than November 1 of the school year preceding the commencement of the program, to publish notice of its intention, as specified. After notice is given, existing law provides that if, not later than the following December 10, 25% of the registered voters of the district sign and present the county superintendent of schools with a petition, as specified, requesting that the school district not establish that program, the county superintendent of schools shall order a ballot proposition to be placed upon the ballot of the appropriate election.
This bill would extend the last day on which a petition may be presented to December 15.
