INTRODUCED BY   Senator Simitian

                        FEBRUARY 19, 2010

   An act to amend Section 48005.55 of the Education Code, relating
to the Kindergarten Readiness Pilot Program.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1381, as introduced, Simitian. Kindergarten Readiness Pilot
Program.
   Existing law establishes the Kindergarten Readiness Pilot Program,
to be implemented in the 2006-07 school year and requires a
participating school district to offer admission to 1st grade at the
beginning of the school year, or at a later time in the same school
year, only to children who will have their 6th birthday on or before
September 1 of that school year. Under existing law, these provisions
become inoperative on July 1, 2013, and are repealed as of January
1, 2014.
   This bill would delete the July 1, 2013, inoperative date and the
January 1, 2014, repeal date of those provisions and would instead
provide that the provisions become inoperative on July 1, 2015, and
be repealed as of January 1, 2016.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.
