LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 591, O'Donnell. School property: lease: county boards of education.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district to lease real property that belongs to the school district for a minimum rental of $1 per year if the instrument by which the property is leased requires a building to be constructed by the lessee for use by the school district and title to the building vests in the school district at the end of the lease. Existing law also authorizes the governing board of a school district to enter into an agreement with the lowest responsible bidder for the construction of a building to be leased and used by the school district if the instrument provides that title to the building and site shall vest in the school district at the end of the lease. Existing law prohibits the governing board of a school district from entering into an agreement with an entity pursuant to the above-specified provisions unless the entity provides an enforceable commitment that the entity and its subcontractors will use a skilled and trained workforce to perform the work.
This bill would make all of the requirements in the provisions specified above applicable to an agreement entered into by a county board of education, county office of education, or county superintendent of schools to let to a person, firm, or corporation any real property that belongs to the county office of education or a school district that requires the lessee to construct a building on demised premises for use by the county office of education or a school district.
