Assembly Bill No. 2261


Introduced by Assembly Member Friedman

An act to amend repeal and add Section 45258 of the Education Code, relating to school employees.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2261, as amended, Friedman. School employees: merit system: exempt from the classified service: community representatives.
Existing law authorizes a school district to adopt a merit system that establishes how the governing board of the school district employs, pays, and otherwise controls the services of classified employees of the school district. Existing law requires a school district that adopts a merit system to appoint a personnel commission and requires the commission to classify all employees and positions within the jurisdiction of the governing board of the school district or of the commission, except for specified positions that are exempt from the classified service. Existing law requires positions established for the employment of community representatives in advisory or consulting capacities for not more than 90 working days, or a total of 720 hours, in a fiscal year to be exempt from the classified service. service, as provided.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the latter provision.

This bill would instead require positions established for the employment of community representatives in advisory or consulting capacities to be considered part of the classified service. To the extent the bill would impose additional duties on school districts, 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: NOYES   Local Program: NOYES
