   An act to amend Section 8483.9 of the Education Code, relating to
after school programs.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 434, as amended, Block. After school programs.
   Existing law establishes the After School Education and Safety
Program to serve pupils in kindergarten and grades 1 to 9, inclusive,
at participating public elementary, middle, junior high, and charter
schools. Existing law requires the State Department of Education to
apportion moneys, from those continuously appropriated for purposes
of after school programs, to program applicants in the form of grants
according to a specified priority scheme and specifies maximum grant
amounts for 3-year direct grants for before and after school
programs. Existing law limits the amount of state funds a program
participant may expend on administrative costs to 15% of the
participant's funding. Existing law requires a program participant
receiving state funding to ensure that no less than 85% of that
funding is allocated to schoolsites for direct services to pupils.
   This bill would authorize the cost of a program site supervisor to
be included as direct services, provided that at least 85% of the
site supervisor's time is spent at the program site.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   (2) Five percent of the state program funding received pursuant to

   (b) A program participant receiving state funding pursuant to this
article may expend no more than 15 percent of that funding on

include indirect costs, as described in subdivision (a).
   (c) A program participant receiving state funding pursuant to this
program shall ensure that no less than 85 percent of that funding is
allocated to schoolsites for direct services to pupils. The cost of
