(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.

end insert

22(b) Except as provided in Article 15.5 (commencing with Section
238350), priority for federal and state subsidized child development
24services is as follows:

25(1) (A) First priority shall be given to neglected or abused
26children who are recipients of child protective services, or children
27who are at risk of being neglected or abused, upon written referral
28from a legal, medical, or social services agency. If an agency is
29unable to enroll a child in the first priority category, the agency
30shall refer the family to local resource and referral services to
31locate services for the child.

32(B) A family who is receiving child care on the basis of being
33a child at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, as defined in
34subdivision (k) of Section 8208, is eligible to receive services
35pursuant to subparagraph (A) for up to three months, unless the
36family becomes eligible pursuant to subparagraph (C).

37(C) A family may receive child care services for up to 12 months
38on the basis of a certification by the county child welfare agency
39that child care services continue to be necessary or, if the child is
40receiving child protective services during that period of time, and
P19   1the family requires child care and remains otherwise eligible. This
2time limit does not apply if the family’s child care referral is
3recertified by the county child welfare agency.

4(2) Second priority shall be given equally to eligible families,
5regardless of the number of parents in the home, who are income
6eligible. Within this priority, families with the lowest gross monthly
7income in relation to family size, as determined by a schedule
8adopted by the Superintendent, shall be admitted first. If two or
9more families are in the same priority in relation to income, the
10family that has a child with exceptional needs shall be admitted
11first. If there is no family of the same priority with a child with
12exceptional needs, the same priority family that has been on the
13waiting list for the longest time shall be admitted first. For purposes
14of determining order of admission, the grants of public assistance
15recipients shall be counted as income.

16(3) The Superintendent shall set criteria for, and may grant
17specific waivers of, the priorities established in this subdivision
18for agencies that wish to serve specific populations, including
19children with exceptional needs or children of prisoners. These
20new waivers shall not include proposals to avoid appropriate fee
21schedules or admit ineligible families, but may include proposals
22to accept members of special populations in other than strict income
23order, as long as appropriate fees are paid.

24(c) Notwithstanding any other law, in order to promote
25continuity of services, a family enrolled in a state or federally
26funded child care and development program whose services would
27otherwise be terminated because the family no longer meets the
28program income, eligibility, or need criteria may continue to
29receive child development services in another state or federally
30funded child care and development program if the contractor is
31able to transfer the family’s enrollment to another program for
32which the family is eligible before the date of termination of
33services or to exchange the family’s existing enrollment with the
34enrollment of a family in another program, provided that both
35families satisfy the eligibility requirements for the program in
36which they are being enrolled. The transfer of enrollment may be
37to another program within the same administrative agency or to
38another agency that administers state or federally funded child
39care and development programs.

P20   1(d) In order to promote continuity of services, the Superintendent
2may extend the 60-working-day period specified in subdivision
3(a) of Section 18086.5 of Title 5 of the California Code of
4Regulations for an additional 60 working days if he or she
5determines that opportunities for employment have diminished to
6the degree that one or both parents cannot reasonably be expected
7to find employment within 60 working days and granting the
8extension is in the public interest. The scope of extensions granted
9pursuant to this subdivision shall be limited to the necessary
10geographic areas and affected persons, which shall be described
11in the Superintendent’s order granting the extension. It is the intent
12of the Legislature that extensions granted pursuant to this
13subdivision improve services in areas with high unemployment
14rates and areas with disproportionately high numbers of seasonal
15agricultural jobs.

16(e) A physical examination and evaluation, including
17 age-appropriate immunization, shall be required before, or within
18six weeks of, enrollment. A standard, rule, or regulation shall not
19require medical examination or immunization for admission to a
20child care and development program of a child whose parent or
21guardian files a letter with the governing board of the child care
22and development program stating that the medical examination or
23immunization is contrary to his or her religious beliefs, or provide
24for the exclusion of a child from the program because of a parent
25or guardian having filed the letter. However, if there is good cause
26to believe that a child is suffering from a recognized contagious
27or infectious disease, the child shall be temporarily excluded from
28the program until the governing board of the child care and
29development program is satisfied that the child is not suffering
30from that contagious or infectious disease.

31(f) Regulations formulated and promulgated pursuant to this
32 section shall include the recommendations of the State Department
33of Health Care Services relative to health care screening and the
34provision of health care services. The Superintendent shall seek
35the advice and assistance of these health authorities in situations
36where service under this chapter includes or requires care of
37children who are ill or children with exceptional needs.

38(g) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines for the
39collection of employer-sponsored child care benefit payments from
40a parent whose child receives subsidized child care and
P21   1development services. These guidelines shall provide for the
2collection of the full amount of the benefit payment, but not to
3exceed the actual cost of child care and development services
4provided, notwithstanding the applicable fee based on the fee
5schedule.

6(h) The Superintendent shall establish guidelines according to
7which the director or a duly authorized representative of the child
8care and development program will certify children as eligible for
9state reimbursement pursuant to this section.

10(i) Public funds shall not be paid directly or indirectly to an
11agency that does not pay at least the minimum wage to each of its
12employees.

The Legislature hereby finds and declares that over the
18next five years, as many as 50 percent of the classroom teachers
19in many urban school districts with large percentages of minority
20pupils will be eligible for retirement. The Legislature further finds
21and declares that in many school districts there are a number of
22classified employees, particularly minority group members, who
23are enrolled in, who have been enrolled in, or who would be
24interested in enrolling in, a teacher training program leading to a
25teaching credential if they were provided assistance in applying
26for admission and financial aid for that purpose.

27The Legislature also finds and declares that educational
28paraprofessionals who serve pupils in the public schools provide
29valuable instructional services to public school pupils. A program
30to enhance instructional competencies and to prepare school
31paraprofessionals to become teachers would result in improved

5by all numerically significant pupil subgroups at the school or
6school district, including:

7(A) Ethnic subgroups.

8(B) Socioeconomically disadvantaged pupils.

9(C) English learners.

10(D) Pupils with disabilities.

11(E) Foster youth.

12(F) Homeless youth.

13(3) (A) For purposes of this section, a numerically significant
14pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 30 pupils, each of
15whom has a valid test score.

16(B) Notwithstanding subparagraph (A), for a subgroup of pupils
17who are foster youth or homeless youth, a numerically significant
18pupil subgroup is one that consists of at least 15 pupils.

19(C) For a school or school district with an API score that is
20based on no fewer than 11 and no more than 99 pupils with valid
21test scores, numerically significant pupil subgroups shall be defined
22by the Superintendent, with approval by the state board.

23(4) (A) The API shall consist of a variety of indicators currently
24reported to the department, including, but not limited to, the results
25of the achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640,
26attendance rates for pupils in elementary schools, middle schools,
27and secondary schools, and the graduation rates for pupils in
28secondary schools.

29(B) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board,
30may also incorporate into the API the rates at which pupils
31successfully promote from one grade to the next in middle school
32and high school, and successfully matriculate from middle school
33to high school.

34(C) Graduation rates for pupils in secondary schools shall be
35calculated for the API as follows:

36(i) Four-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
37number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
38year, which is considered to be three school years after the pupils
39entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
40total calculated in clause (ii).

P59   1(ii) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
2the school year three school years before the current school year,
3plus the number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating
4at the end of the current school year between the school year that
5was three school years before the current school year and the date
6of graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
7school between the school year that was three school years before
8the current school year and the date of graduation who were
9members of the class that is graduating at the end of the current
10school year.

11(iii) Five-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
12number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
13year, which is considered to be four school years after the pupils
14entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
15total calculated in clause (iv).

16(iv) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
17the school year four years before the current school year, plus the
18number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the
19end of the current school year between the school year that was
20four school years before the current school year and the date of
21graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
22school between the school year that was four years before the
23current school year and the date of graduation who were members
24of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.

25(v) Six-year graduation rates shall be calculated by taking the
26number of pupils who graduated on time for the current school
27year, which is considered to be five school years after the pupils
28entered grade 9 for the first time, and dividing that number by the
29total calculated in clause (vi).

30(vi) The number of pupils entering grade 9 for the first time in
31the school year five years before the current school year, plus the
32number of pupils who transferred into the class graduating at the
33end of the current school year between the school year that was
34five school years before the current school year and the date of
35graduation, less the number of pupils who transferred out of the
36school between the school year that was five years before the
37current school year and the date of graduation who were members
38of the class that is graduating at the end of the current school year.

39(D) The inclusion of five- and six-year graduation rates for
40pupils in secondary schools shall meet the following requirements:

P60   1(i) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-half the
2credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in five years that
3they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.

4(ii) Schools and school districts shall be granted one-quarter the
5credit in their API scores for graduating pupils in six years that
6they are granted for graduating pupils in four years.

7(iii) Notwithstanding clauses (i) and (ii), schools and school
8districts shall be granted full credit in their API scores for
9graduating in five or six years a pupil with disabilities who
10graduates in accordance with his or her individualized education
11program.

12(E) The pupil data collected for the API that comes from the
13achievement test administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the
14high school exit examination administered pursuant to Section
1560851, when fully implemented, shall be disaggregated by special
16education status, English learners, socioeconomic status, gender,
17and ethnic group. Only the test scores of pupils who were counted
18as part of the enrollment in the annual data collection of the
19California Basic Educational Data System for the current fiscal
20year and who were continuously enrolled during that year may be
21included in the test result reports in the API score of the school.

22(F) (i) Commencing with the baseline API calculation in 2016,
23and for each year thereafter, results of the achievement test and
24other tests specified in subdivision (b) shall constitute no more
25than 60 percent of the value of the index for secondary schools.

26(ii)  In addition to the elements required by this paragraph, the
27Superintendent, with the approval of the state board, may
28incorporate into the index for secondary schools valid, reliable,
29and stable measures of pupil preparedness for postsecondary
30education and career.

31(G) Results of the achievement test and other tests specified in
32subdivision (b) shall constitute at least 60 percent of the value of
33the index for primary schools and middle schools.

34(H) It is the intent of the Legislature that the state’s system of
35public school accountability be more closely aligned with both the
36public’s expectations for public education and the workforce needs
37of the state’s economy. It is therefore necessary that the
38accountability system evolve beyond its narrow focus on pupil test
39scores to encompass other valuable information about school
40performance, including, but not limited to, pupil preparedness for
P61   1college and career, as well as the high school graduation rates
2already required by law.

3(I) The Superintendent shall annually determine the accuracy
4of the graduation rate data. Notwithstanding any other law,
5graduation rates for pupils in dropout recovery high schools shall
6not be included in the API. For purposes of this subparagraph,
7“dropout recovery high school” means a high school in which 50
8percent or more of its pupils have been designated as dropouts
9pursuant to the exit/withdrawal codes developed by the department
10or left a school and were not otherwise enrolled in a school for a
11period of at least 180 days.

12(J) To complement the API, the Superintendent, with the
13approval of the state board, may develop and implement a program
14of school quality review that features locally convened panels to
15visit schools, observe teachers, interview pupils, and examine pupil
16work, if an appropriation for this purpose is made in the annual
17Budget Act.

18(K) The Superintendent shall annually provide to local
19educational agencies and the public a transparent and
20understandable explanation of the individual components of the
21API and their relative values within the API.

22(L) An additional element chosen by the Superintendent and
23the state board for inclusion in the API pursuant to this paragraph
24shall not be incorporated into the API until at least one full school
25year after the state board’s decision to include the element into the
26API.

27(b) Pupil scores from the following tests, when available and
28when found to be valid and reliable for this purpose, shall be
29 incorporated into the API:

30(1) The standards-based achievement tests provided for in
31Section 60642.5.

32(2) The high school exit examination.

33(c) Based on the API, the Superintendent shall develop, and the
34state board shall adopt, expected annual percentage growth targets
35for all schools based on their API baseline score from the previous
36year. Schools are expected to meet these growth targets through
37effective allocation of available resources. For schools below the
38statewide API performance target adopted by the state board
39pursuant to subdivision (d), the minimum annual percentage growth
40target shall be 5 percent of the difference between the actual API
P62   1score of a school and the statewide API performance target, or one
2API point, whichever is greater. Schools at or above the statewide
3API performance target shall have, as their growth target,
4maintenance of their API score above the statewide API
5performance target. However, the state board may set differential
6growth targets based on grade level of instruction and may set
7higher growth targets for the lowest performing schools because
8they have the greatest room for improvement. To meet its growth
9target, a school shall demonstrate that the annual growth in its API
10is equal to or more than its schoolwide annual percentage growth
11target and that all numerically significant pupil subgroups, as
12defined in subdivision (a), are making comparable improvement.

13(d) Upon adoption of state performance standards by the state
14board, the Superintendent shall recommend, and the state board
15shall adopt, a statewide API performance target that includes
16consideration of performance standards and represents the
17proficiency level required to meet the state performance target.

18(e) (1) A school or school district with 11 to 99 pupils with
19valid test scores shall receive an API score with an asterisk that
20indicates less statistical certainty than API scores based on 100 or
21more test scores.

22(2) A school or school district annually shall receive an API
23score, unless the Superintendent determines that an API score
24would be an invalid measure of the performance of the school or
25school district for one or more of the following reasons:

26(A) Irregularities in testing procedures occurred.

27(B) The data used to calculate the API score of the school or
28school district are not representative of the pupil population at the
29school or school district.

30(C) Significant demographic changes in the pupil population
31render year-to-year comparisons of pupil performance invalid.

32(D) The department discovers or receives information indicating
33that the integrity of the API score has been compromised.

34(E) Insufficient pupil participation in the assessments included
35in the API.

36(F) A transition to new standards-based assessments
37compromises comparability of results across schools or school
38districts. The Superintendent may use the authority in this
39subparagraph in thebegin delete 2013-14end deletebegin insert 2013-14, 2014-15,end insert andbegin delete 2014-15end delete
40begin insert 2015-16end insert school years only, with the approval of the state board.

P63   1(3) If a school or school district has fewer than 100 pupils with
2valid test scores, the calculation of the API or adequate yearly
3progress pursuant to the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001
4(20 U.S.C. Sec. 6301 et seq.) and federal regulations may be
5calculated over more than one annual administration of the tests
6administered pursuant to Section 60640 and the high school exit
7examination administered pursuant to Section 60851, consistent
8with regulations adopted by the state board.

9(4) Any school or school district that does not receive an API
10calculated pursuant to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall not
11receive an API growth target pursuant to subdivision (c). Schools
12and school districts that do not have an API calculated pursuant
13to subparagraph (F) of paragraph (2) shall use one of the following:

14(A) The most recent API calculation.

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

16(C) Alternative measures that show increases in pupil academic
17achievement for all groups of pupils schoolwide and among
18significant subgroups.

19(f) Only schools with 100 or more test scores contributing to
20the API may be included in the API rankings.

21(g) The Superintendent, with the approval of the state board,
22shall develop an alternative accountability system for schools under
23the jurisdiction of a county board of education or a county
24superintendent of schools, community day schools, nonpublic,
25nonsectarian schools pursuant to Section 56366, and alternative
26schools serving high-risk pupils, including continuation high
27schools and opportunity schools. Schools in the alternative
28accountability system may receive an API score, but shall not be
29included in the API rankings.

30(h) For purposes of this section, county offices of education
31shall be considered school districts.

32(i) For purposes of this section, “homeless youth” has the same
33meaning as in Section 11434a(2) of Title 42 of the United States
34Code.
