          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  This bill establishes the Our Children's Success - The  
          Early Intervention Attendance Pilot Grant Program for the  
          purpose of helping public schools resolve attendance problems of  
          pupils in kindergarten or grades 1 to 3 contingent upon an  
          appropriation, as specified.  


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           Cost pressure of up to $5 million to provide grant awards to  
            schools, school districts, and county offices of education.   
            Potential cost pressure to provide ongoing funding to support  
            continuation of the grant program.  (Proposition 98)

           The California Department of Education indicates the need for  
            four positions and about $379,000 to create and staff the

            application review and implementation process of this grant  
            program according to the specified grant award priorities.   
            (General Fund)


          Committee  
          Amendments:  Amend to make implementation of the bill contingent  
          upon an appropriation and specify that Proposition 47 savings  
          shall not be used to support the program.
