Senate Bill No. 97
CHAPTER 674

An act to add Section 49452.6 to the Education Code, relating to pupil health.

[ Approved by Governor  October 08, 2021. Filed with Secretary of State  October 08, 2021. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 97, Roth. Pupil health: type 1 diabetes information: parent notification.
Existing law requires a school district to provide a type 2 diabetes information sheet developed by the State Department of Education to the parent or guardian of an incoming pupil in grade 7, as specified.
This bill would require the department to develop type 1 diabetes informational materials for the parents and guardians of pupils, as specified, and would require those informational materials to be made available to each school district, county office of education, and charter school through the department’s internet website. The bill would require, on and after January 1, 2023, school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools to make those materials available to the parent or guardian of a pupil when the pupil is first enrolled in elementary school, or as part of a certain notification. By imposing additional requirements on school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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