52381.
  

The Legislature finds that it is urgently necessary to reduce the continuing high level of unemployment among the youth and young adults by broadening and strengthening the existing career technical education programs to provide them with the necessary work skills in order that they will be equipped to participate in a meaningful manner in our ever increasingly technical society.

It is the intent of the Legislature by the provisions of this article to afford a means whereby school districts may broaden and strengthen the existing career technical education programs and to provide the districts with necessary financial support to enable them to implement career technical training and work programs during the summer months for the unemployed youth and young adults so that they may be trained in marketable work skills and earn funds as may be necessary to enable them to continue their education.

(Amended by Stats. 2000, Ch. 1058, Sec. 76. Effective January 1, 2001.)

52382.
  

A program of summer career technical and technical education may be established pursuant to this article by the governing board of any school district maintaining one or more high schools. Pupils who have completed grades 9 to 12, inclusive, may be permitted to participate in a program.

Summer career technical and technical education programs shall consist of training and instruction in any skills and crafts in which ample opportunities for gainful employment are to be found. The program may include work experience involving the gainful employment of pupils. The provisions of Article 2 (commencing with Section 1940) of Chapter 2 of Part 7 of the Labor Code, limiting the employment of aliens by public agencies shall not be applicable to the employment of pupils under this article.

(Amended by Stats. 2000, Ch. 1058, Sec. 77. Effective January 1, 2001.)

Wages earned by pupils participating in a program of summer career technical and technical education, shall be paid weekly, or, if not reasonably possible, biweekly.

The governing board of a school district may contract with and receive and expend funds from any other public or private agency, foundation, or corporation for the purposes of this article.
