LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1050, as amended, Umberg. Juvenile court schools. Pupil instruction: model curricula: Vietnamese American refugee experience, the Cambodian genocide, and Hmong history and cultural studies.
Existing law requires the Instructional Quality Commission to develop and submit to the State Board of Education, on or before December 31, 2022, and requires the state board to adopt, modify, or revise, on or before March 31, 2023, a model curriculum relative to the Vietnamese American refugee experience, a model curriculum relative to the Cambodian genocide, and a model curriculum in Hmong history and cultural studies, as specified, for use in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. Existing law provides that implementation of these provisions is subject to the receipt of grants, donations, or other financial support from private or public sources for its purposes, including, but not limited to, an appropriation in the annual Budget Act or another statute.
This bill would appropriate $2,929,628 from the General Fund to the State Board of Education to fund the development by the Instructional Quality Commission and the adoption, modification, or revision by the state board of those model curricula.
Funds appropriated by this bill would be applied toward the minimum funding requirements for school districts and community college districts imposed by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

Existing law requires plans for juvenile court school classrooms, offices, or any other school structures in any juvenile hall, juvenile home, day center, juvenile ranch, or juvenile camp to be approved by the county board of education, as specified.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that provision.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NOYES   Fiscal Committee: NOYES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 (a) The sum of two million nine hundred twenty-nine thousand six hundred twenty-eight dollars ($2,929,628) is hereby appropriated from the General Fund to the State Board of Education to fund the development by the Instructional Quality Commission and the adoption, modification, or revision by the state board of model curricula pursuant to Sections 33540.2, 33540.4, and 33540.6 of the Education Code.
(b) For purposes of making the computations required by Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, the appropriation made by subdivision (a) shall be deemed to be “General Fund revenues appropriated for school districts,” as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 41202 of the Education Code, for the fiscal year in which the appropriation is made, and included within the “total allocations to school districts and community college districts from General Fund proceeds of taxes appropriated pursuant to Article XIII B,” as defined in subdivision (e) of Section 41202 of the Education Code, for the fiscal year in which the appropriation is made.
SECTION 1.Section 48645.6 of the Education Code is amended to read:
48645.6.

(a)Plans for any juvenile court school classrooms, offices, or any other school structures in any juvenile hall, juvenile home, day center, juvenile ranch, or juvenile camp shall be approved by the county board of education. Upon the approval of the board of supervisors and the county board of education, the cost of those structures shall be a required charge against the funds of the county.

(b)The cost of constructing or otherwise providing classrooms, offices, or other onsite school structures in group homes or other agencies housing children described in Sections 362, 727, and 730 of the Welfare and Institutions Code shall be the responsibility of the private agency. This construction shall not entitle private agencies to an increase in the foster care reimbursement rates available from the State Department of Social Services or any other state agency. It is the intent of the Legislature that nothing in this section shall be construed to preclude the county boards of education or the governing boards of school districts from entering into a contractual agreement providing compensation to group homes for the use of classrooms, offices, or other onsite school structures.
