INTRODUCED BY   Senator Liu

                        FEBRUARY 5, 2013

   An act to amend Sections 41976 and 84757 of the Education Code,
relating to education funding.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 173, as introduced, Liu. Education funding: adult health and
safety education.
   Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district
maintaining secondary schools to establish and maintain classes for
adults, as specified. Existing law authorizes specified classes and
courses to be offered by school districts and county superintendent
of schools for apportionment purposes from the adult education fund,
including, but not limited to, classes and courses for adult programs
in health and safety education.
   This bill would remove the authorization for adult programs in
health and safety education to be offered for apportionment purposes
from the adult education fund.
   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 requires specified noncredit
community college courses and classes to be eligible for
program-based funding from the state, including, but not limited to,
health and safety education courses and classes.
   This bill would remove noncredit community college health and
safety education courses and classes' eligibility for program-based
funding from the state.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.
