No. 1427


Introduced by Assembly Member Carrillo

An act relating to public postsecondary education. An act to amend Section 87482.7 of the Education Code, relating to community colleges.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1427, as amended, Carrillo. Public postsecondary education: the California Promise. Community colleges: full-time faculty.
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. Existing law establishes community college districts throughout the state, and authorizes them to operate campuses and provide instruction to students.
Existing law requires a community college district that has less than 75% of its hours of credit instruction taught by full-time instructors to apply a portion of specified state funding to increase the percentage of its hours of credit instruction taught by full-time instructors, as provided. Existing law requires the board of governors to adopt regulations that establish minimum standards regarding the percentage of hours of credit instruction taught by full-time instructors.
This bill would instead require the board of governors to adopt regulations that establish minimum standards regarding the percentage of hours of credit and noncredit instruction taught by full-time instructors.

Existing law establishes the California Promise, which requires individual campuses of the California State University to establish a California Promise program through which the campus would enter into a pledge with a student who satisfies specified criteria to support the student in earning a baccalaureate degree in limited time. The California Promise requires 8 campuses to provide support for qualifying nontransfer students to earn that degree within 4 academic years, and 20 campuses to support a student who is a community college transfer student who earned an associate degree for transfer in earning a baccalaureate degree within 2 academic years, of the academic year of the student’s first year of enrollment, as specified.

This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation relating to the California Promise.
