          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 11, 2016






          Bill  
          Summary:    This bill establishes the Learning Communities for  
          School Success Program, which requires the California Department  
          of Education (CDE) to administer grants for local educational  
          agencies (LEAs) to implement programs and services consistent  
          with Proposition 47 to improve outcomes for students by reducing  
          truancy and supporting students who are at risk of dropping out  
          of school or are victims of crime.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  







          AB 1014 (Thurmond)                                     Page 1 of  
          ?
          
          
           The implementation of this bill is contingent upon funds  
            appropriated in the budget act or another statute.  The Budget  
            Act of 2016 includes a total of $27.9 million for this  
            purpose.  Specifically, the budget includes $9.4 million of  
            estimated Proposition 47 savings, with an additional $18  
            million in one-time Proposition 98 to be spent over three  
            years, and $493,000 General Fund for CDE state operations.

           The CDE anticipates costs of almost $720,000 in the first year  
            for start-up and program administration costs, including  
            contracting with consultants to provide technical assistance,  
            conducting stakeholder meetings and program monitoring, and  
            funding for CDE support staff.  This translates to an  
            additional need of $227,000 over the amount provided in the  
            budget act.  Second year costs (2017-18) are anticipated to be  
            $763,000.  


          Author  
          Amendments:  Clarifying changes related to: (1) the application  
          guidelines; (2) the use of grant funds; and (3) technical  
          assistance provided through regional workshops.
