(1) Existing law, the Child Care and Development Services Act, requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to administer child care and development programs that offer a full range of services for eligible children from infancy to 13 years of age. The act requires families to meet certain requirements in various areas to be eligible for federal and state subsidized child development services. Existing law also provides for income eligibility standards for families to receive child care and development services. Existing law provides that “income eligible,” for purposes of the act, means that a family’s adjusted monthly income is at or below 70% of the state median income, adjusted for family size, and adjusted annually. Notwithstanding this provision, existing law sets the income eligibility limits for the 2014-15 fiscal year at 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007-08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.

end insert
begin insert

This bill would require, if only one parent has signed an application for enrollment in child care services and the information provided on the application indicates that there is a second parent who has not signed the application, the parent who has signed the application to self-certify the presence or absence of the second parent under penalty of perjury. By expanding the crime of perjury, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would prohibit requiring the parent who has signed the application to submit additional information documenting the presence or absence of the second parent. The bill would also set the income eligibility limits for the 2016-17 fiscal year at 70% of the state median income that was in use for the 2007-08 fiscal year, adjusted for family size.

Existing law requires the department, if a market rate ceiling for a county is less than the ceiling provided for that county before January 1, 2015, to use the ceiling from the regional market rate survey conducted in 2005, and requires, commencing October 1, 2015, the regional market rate ceilings for all counties to be increased by 4.5%.

P19   1(b) Except as provided in Article 15.5 (commencing with Section
28350), priority for federal and state subsidized child development
3services is as follows:

4(1) (A) First priority shall be given to neglected or abused
5children who are recipients of child protective services, or children
6who are at risk of being neglected or abused, upon written referral
7from a legal, medical, or social services agency. If an agency is
8unable to enroll a child in the first priority category, the agency
9shall refer the family to local resource and referral services to
10locate services for the child.

11(B) A family who is receiving child care on the basis of being
12a child at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, as defined in
13subdivision (k) of Section 8208, is eligible to receive services
14pursuant to subparagraph (A) for up to three months, unless the
15family becomes eligible pursuant to subparagraph (C).

16(C) A family may receive child care services for up to 12 months
17on the basis of a certification by the county child welfare agency
18that child care services continue to be necessary or, if the child is
19receiving child protective services during that period of time, and
20the family requires child care and remains otherwise eligible. This
21time limit does not apply if the family’s child care referral is
22recertified by the county child welfare agency.

23(2) Second priority shall be given equally to eligible families,
24regardless of the number of parents in the home, who are income
25eligible. Within this priority, families with the lowest gross monthly
26income in relation to family size, as determined by a schedule
27adopted by the Superintendent, shall be admitted first. If two or
28more families are in the same priority in relation to income, the
29family that has a child with exceptional needs shall be admitted
30first. If there is no family of the same priority with a child with
31exceptional needs, the same priority family that has been on the
32waiting list for the longest time shall be admitted first. For purposes
33of determining order of admission, the grants of public assistance
34recipients shall be counted as income.

35(3) The Superintendent shall set criteria for, and may grant
36specific waivers of, the priorities established in this subdivision
37for agencies that wish to serve specific populations, including
38children with exceptional needs or children of prisoners. These
39new waivers shall not include proposals to avoid appropriate fee
40schedules or admit ineligible families, but may include proposals
P20   1to accept members of special populations in other than strict income
2order, as long as appropriate fees are paid.

3(c) Notwithstanding any other law, in order to promote
4continuity of services, a family enrolled in a state or federally
5funded child care and development program whose services would
6otherwise be terminated because the family no longer meets the
7program income, eligibility, or need criteria may continue to
8receive child development services in another state or federally
9funded child care and development program if the contractor is
10able to transfer the family’s enrollment to another program for
11which the family is eligible before the date of termination of
12services or to exchange the family’s existing enrollment with the
13enrollment of a family in another program, provided that both
14families satisfy the eligibility requirements for the program in
15which they are being enrolled. The transfer of enrollment may be
16to another program within the same administrative agency or to
17another agency that administers state or federally funded child
18care and development programs.

19(d) In order to promote continuity of services, the Superintendent
20may extend the 60-working-day period specified in subdivision
21(a) of Section 18086.5 of Title 5 of the California Code of
22Regulations for an additional 60 working days if he or she
23determines that opportunities for employment have diminished to
24the degree that one or both parents cannot reasonably be expected
25to find employment within 60 working days and granting the
26extension is in the public interest. The scope of extensions granted
27pursuant to this subdivision shall be limited to the necessary
28geographic areas and affected persons, which shall be described
29in the Superintendent’s order granting the extension. It is the intent
30of the Legislature that extensions granted pursuant to this
31subdivision improve services in areas with high unemployment
32rates and areas with disproportionately high numbers of seasonal
33agricultural jobs.

34(e) A physical examination and evaluation, including
35 age-appropriate immunization, shall be required before, or within
36six weeks of, enrollment. A standard, rule, or regulation shall not
37require medical examination or immunization for admission to a
38child care and development program of a child whose parent or
39guardian files a letter with the governing board of the child care
40and development program stating that the medical examination or
P21   1immunization is contrary to his or her religious beliefs, or provide
2for the exclusion of a child from the program because of a parent
3or guardian having filed the letter. However, if there is good cause
4to believe that a child is suffering from a recognized contagious
5or infectious disease, the child shall be temporarily excluded from
6the program until the governing board of the child care and
7development program is satisfied that the child is not suffering
8from that contagious or infectious disease.

9(f) Regulations formulated and promulgated pursuant to this
10 section shall include the recommendations of the State Department
11of Health Care Services relative to health care screening and the
12provision of health care services. The Superintendent shall seek
13the advice and assistance of these health authorities in situations
14where service under this chapter includes or requires care of
15children who are ill or children with exceptional needs.

16(g) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines for the
17collection of employer-sponsored child care benefit payments from
18a parent whose child receives subsidized child care and
19development services. These guidelines shall provide for the
20collection of the full amount of the benefit payment, but not to
21exceed the actual cost of child care and development services
22provided, notwithstanding the applicable fee based on the fee
23schedule.

24(h) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines according to
25which the director or a duly authorized representative of the child
26care and development program will certify children as eligible for
27state reimbursement pursuant to this section.

28(i) Public funds shall not be paid directly or indirectly to an
29agency that does not pay at least the minimum wage to each of its
30employees.

The Legislature hereby finds and declares that over the

20to measure the performance of schools and school districts,
21especially the academic performance of pupils.

22(2) A school or school district shall demonstrate comparable
23improvement in academic achievement as measured by the API
24by all numerically significant pupil subgroups at the school or
25school district, including:

26(A) Ethnic subgroups.

27(B) Socioeconomically disadvantaged pupils.

28(C) English learners.

29(D) Pupils with disabilities.

30(E) Foster youth.

31(F) Homeless youth.

32(3) (A) For purposes of this section, a numerically significant
33pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 30 pupils, each of
34whom has a valid test score.

35(B) Notwithstanding subparagraph (A), for a subgroup of pupils
36who are foster youth or homeless youth, a numerically significant
37pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 15 pupils.

38(C) For a school or school district with an API score that is
39based on no fewer than 11 and no more than 99 pupils with valid
P59   1test scores, numerically significant pupil subgroups shall be defined
2by the Superintendent, with approval by the state board.

3(4) (A) The API shall consist of a variety of indicators currently
4reported to the department, including, but not limited to, the results
5of the achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640,
6attendance rates for pupils in elementary schools, middle schools,
7and secondary schools, and the graduation rates for pupils in
8secondary schools.

9(B) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board,
10may also incorporate into the API the rates at which pupils
11successfully promote from one grade to the next in middle school
12and high school, and successfully matriculate from middle school
13to high school.

14(C) Graduation rates for pupils in secondary schools shall be
15calculated for the API as follows:

16(i) Four-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
17number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
18year, which is considered to be three school years after the pupils
19entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
20total calculated in clause (ii).

21(ii) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
22the school year three school years before the current school year,
23plus the number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating
24at the end of the current school year between the school year that
25was three school years before the current school year and the date
26of graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
27school between the school year that was three school years before
28the current school year and the date of graduation who were
29members of the class that is graduating at the end of the current
30school year.

31(iii) Five-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
32number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
33year, which is considered to be four school years after the pupils
34entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
35total calculated in clause (iv).

36(iv) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
37the school year four years before the current school year, plus the
38number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the
39end of the current school year between the school year that was
40four school years before the current school year and the date of
P60   1graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
2school between the school year that was four years before the
3current school year and the date of graduation who were members
4of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.

5(v) Six-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
6number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
7year, which is considered to be five school years after the pupils
8entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
9total calculated in clause (vi).

10(vi) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
11the school year five years before the current school year, plus the
12number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the
13end of the current school year between the school year that was
14five school years before the current school year and the date of
15graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
16school between the school year that was five years before the
17current school year and the date of graduation who were members
18of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.

19(D) The inclusion of five- and six-year graduation rates for
20pupils in secondary schools shall meet the following requirements:

21(i) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-half the
22credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in five years that
23they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.

24(ii) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-quarter the
25credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in six years that
26they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.

27(iii) Notwithstanding clauses (i) and (ii), schools and school
28districts shall be granted full credit in their API scores for
29graduating in five or six years a pupil with disabilities who
30graduates in accordance with his or her individualized education
31program.

32(E) The pupil data collected for the API that comes from the
33achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the
34high school exit examination administered pursuant to Section
3560851, when fully implemented, shall be disaggregated by special
36education status, English learners, socioeconomic status, gender,
37and ethnic group. Only the test scores of pupils who were counted
38as part of the enrollment in the annual data collection of the
39California Basic Educational Data System for the current fiscal
P61   1year and who were continuously enrolled during that year may be
2included in the test result reports in the API score of the school.

3(F) (i) Commencing with the baseline API calculation in 2016,
4and for each year thereafter, results of the achievement test and
5other tests specified in subdivision (b) shall constitute no more
6than 60 percent of the value of the index for secondary schools.

7(ii)  In addition to the elements required by this paragraph, the
8Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, may
9incorporate into the index for secondary schools valid, reliable,
10and stable measures of pupil preparedness for postsecondary
11education and career.

12(G) Results of the achievement test and other tests specified in
13subdivision (b) shall constitute at least 60 percent of the value of
14the index for primary schools and middle schools.

15(H) It is the intent of the Legislature that the state’s system of
16public school accountability be more closely aligned with both the
17public’s expectations for public education and the workforce needs
18of the state’s economy. It is therefore necessary that the
19accountability system evolve beyond its narrow focus on pupil test
20scores to encompass other valuable information about school
21performance, including, but not limited to, pupil preparedness for
22college and career, as well as the high school graduation rates
23already required by law.

24(I) The Superintendent shall annually determine the accuracy
25of the graduation rate data. Notwithstanding any other law,
26graduation rates for pupils in dropout recovery high schools shall
27not be included in the API. For purposes of this subparagraph,
28“dropout recovery high school” means a high school in which 50
29percent or more of its pupils have been designated as dropouts
30pursuant to the exit/withdrawal codes developed by the department
31or left a school and were not otherwise enrolled in a school for a
32period of at least 180 days.

33(J) To complement the API, the Superintendent, with the
34approval of the state board, may develop and implement a program
35of school quality review that features locally convened panels to
36visit schools, observe teachers, interview pupils, and examine pupil
37work, if an appropriation for this purpose is made in the annual
38Budget Act.

39(K) The Superintendent shall annually provide to local
40educational agencies and the public a transparent and
P62   1understandable explanation of the individual components of the
2API and their relative values within the API.

3(L) An additional element chosen by the Superintendent and
4the state board for inclusion in the API pursuant to this paragraph
5shall not be incorporated into the API until at least one full school
6year after the state board’s decision to include the element into the
7API.

8(b) Pupil scores from the following tests, when available and
9when found to be valid and reliable for this purpose, shall be
10 incorporated into the API:

11(1) The standards-based achievement tests provided for in
12Section 60642.5.

13(2) The high school exit examination.

14(c) Based on the API, the Superintendent shall develop, and the
15state board shall adopt, expected annual percentage growth targets
16for all schools based on their API baseline score from the previous
17year. Schools are expected to meet these growth targets through
18effective allocation of available resources. For schools below the
19statewide API performance target adopted by the state board
20pursuant to subdivision (d), the minimum annual percentage growth
21target shall be 5 percent of the difference between the actual API
22score of a school and the statewide API performance target, or one
23API point, whichever is greater. Schools at or above the statewide
24API performance target shall have, as their growth target,
25maintenance of their API score above the statewide API
26performance target. However, the state board may set differential
27growth targets based on grade level of instruction and may set
28higher growth targets for the lowest performing schools because
29they have the greatest room for improvement. To meet its growth
30target, a school shall demonstrate that the annual growth in its API
31is equal to or more than its schoolwide annual percentage growth
32target and that all numerically significant pupil subgroups, as
33defined in subdivision (a), are making comparable improvement.

34(d) Upon adoption of state performance standards by the state
35board, the Superintendent shall recommend, and the state board
36shall adopt, a statewide API performance target that includes
37consideration of performance standards and represents the
38proficiency level required to meet the state performance target.

39(e) (1) A school or school district with 11 to 99 pupils with
40valid test scores shall receive an API score with an asterisk that
P63   1indicates less statistical certainty than API scores based on 100 or
2more test scores.

3(2) A school or school district annually shall receive an API
4score, unless the Superintendent determines that an API score
5would be an invalid measure of the performance of the school or
6school district for one or more of the following reasons:

7(A) Irregularities in testing procedures occurred.

8(B) The data used to calculate the API score of the school or
9school district are not representative of the pupil population at the
10school or school district.

11(C) Significant demographic changes in the pupil population
12render year-to-year comparisons of pupil performance invalid.

13(D) The department discovers or receives information indicating
14that the integrity of the API score has been compromised.

15(E) Insufficient pupil participation in the assessments included
16in the API.

17(F) A transition to new standards-based assessments
18compromises comparability of results across schools or school
19districts. The Superintendent may use the authority in this
20subparagraph in thebegin delete 2013-14end deletebegin insert 2013-14, 2014-15,end insert andbegin delete 2014-15end delete
21begin insert 2015-16end insert school years only, with the approval of the state board.

22(3) If a school or school district has fewer than 100 pupils with
23valid test scores, the calculation of the API or adequate yearly
24progress pursuant to the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001
25(20 U.S.C. Sec. 6301 et seq.) and federal regulations may be
26calculated over more than one annual administration of the tests
27administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the high school exit
28examination administered pursuant to Section 60851, consistent
29with regulations adopted by the state board.

30(4) Any school or school district that does not receive an API
31calculated pursuant to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall not
32receive an API growth target pursuant to subdivision (c). Schools
33and school districts that do not have an API calculated pursuant
34to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall use one of the following:

35(A) The most recent API calculation.

36(B) An average of the three most recent annual API calculations.

37(C) Alternative measures that show increases in pupil academic
38achievement for all groups of pupils schoolwide and among
39significant subgroups.

P64   1(f) Only schools with 100 or more test scores contributing to
2the API may be included in the API rankings.

3(g) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board,
4shall develop an alternative accountability system for schools under
5the jurisdiction of a county board of education or a county
6superintendent of schools, community day schools, nonpublic,
7nonsectarian schools pursuant to Section 56366, and alternative
8schools serving high-risk pupils, including continuation high
9schools and opportunity schools. Schools in the alternative
10accountability system may receive an API score, but shall not be
11included in the API rankings.

12(h) For purposes of this section, county offices of education
13shall be considered school districts.

14(i) For purposes of this section, “homeless youth” has the same
15meaning as in Section 11434a(2) of Title 42 of the United States
16Code.
