CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1415


Introduced by Assembly Member Cunningham

February 17, 2017


An act to amend Section 51226.1 of the Education Code, relating to pupil instruction.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1415, as introduced, Cunningham. Pupil instruction: career and technical education: curriculum framework.
Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction, upon adoption of specified model curriculum standards for pupils in grades 7 to 12, inclusive, to develop a curriculum framework that offers a blueprint for implementation of career and technical education. Existing law requires the Superintendent, in developing the framework, to work in consultation and coordination with an advisory group, as specified. Existing law provides that adoption of the framework by local educational agencies is voluntary.
This bill would make nonsubstantive corrections to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
