CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1563

January 30, 2012


An act to amend Section 35021 of the Education Code, relating to school volunteers.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1563, as introduced, Norby. Schools: volunteers: capital maintenance projects.
Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district to permit a person, except a person required to register as a sex offender, as specified, to volunteer to supervise pupils during the school lunch period or any breakfast period or nutrition period, or to serve as a nonteaching volunteer aide under the immediate supervision and direction of the certificated personnel of the district, as specified. Existing law prohibits a school district from abolishing any of its classified positions and utilizing those volunteers for those services in place of classified employees laid off as a result of the abolition of a position.
This bill would authorize the governing board of a school district to permit a person, except a person required to register as a sex offender, as specified, to serve as an unpaid volunteer for a capital maintenance project in the school district. The bill would provide that, to the extent these provisions conflict with any provision of a collective bargaining agreement entered into before January 1, 2013, by a public school employer and an exclusive bargaining representative, the provisions shall not apply to the school district until the expiration of that collective bargaining agreement.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
