The bill would require the State Department of Education, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, and the California State University, and would request the University of California, to set up a data collection system to track student data for these purposes, and would require the Labor and Workforce Development Agency to provide wage record and workforce program data for those students recently entering the workforce. who recently entered the workforce after graduation, completion, or otherwise ending their attendance of school or the public postsecondary education system. The bill would require any research or report developed with the use of the data system to be accessible to the public, and would require the development and maintenance of the data system to comply with applicable state and federal privacy laws.
