Existing law requires the Academic Content Standards Commission to develop, and the state board to adopt or reject, academic content standards in language arts and mathematics that are internationally benchmarked and build toward college and career readiness by the time of high school graduation, and requires at least 85% of these standards to be the common core academic content standards developed by the Common Core State Standards Initiative consortium or any associated or related interstate collaboration, except as specified.end delete
This bill would establish the Common Core Implementation Block Grant for purposes of implementing the adopted common core academic content standards. The bill would require the Superintendent to allocate block grant funds to school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools on the basis of prior year enrollment and would require the school districts, county offices of education, or charter schools receiving block grant funds to use those funds for certain purposes, including professional development of teachers, administrators, and paraprofessional educators, as specified. The bill would require, as a condition of receiving block grant funds, the governing board of a school district, the county board of education, or the governing body of a charter school to adopt a plan delineating how the block grant funds shall be spent and to report detailed expenditure information to the State Department of Education on or before January 1, 2015, as specified. The bill would require the department to provide a summary of the expenditure information provided to it to the appropriate budget subcommittees and policy committees of the Legislature on or before July 3, 2015. The bill would require the Common Core Implementation Block Grant to not be implemented unless funding is provided for the block grant in the annual Budget Act or another statute.end delete
