Title: Education finance: education omnibus budget trailer bill.
Author: Assembly Committee on Budget

Summary
AB 167, Committee on Budget. Education finance: education omnibus budget trailer bill. (1) Existing law establishes the California Prekindergarten Planning and Implementation Grant Program as a state early learning initiative with the goal of expanding access to classroom-based prekindergarten programs at local educational agencies, defined as school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools. Existing law appropriates $300,000,000 from the General Fund to the State Department of Education for allocation to local educational agencies for grants for the 2021–22 fiscal year. Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to allocate $200,000,000 of that amount to local educational agencies as base grants, enrollment grants, and supplemental grants for specified purposes.This bill would revise the methodology for allocating base grants, enrollment grants, and supplemental grants to local educational agencies under the program.(2) Existing law requires the Controller to draw warrants on the State Treasury throughout each year in specified amounts for purposes of apportioning funding to school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools. Existing law requires the Controller to provide in each warrant a portion of the total amount certified by the Superintendent as apportioned for specified programs during the fiscal year from the State School Fund to the school districts and charter schools under the jurisdiction of the county superintendent of schools of that county, to the county school service fund of that county, and to the county school tuition fund of that county.This bill would add the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program, specified mental health-related services, and the special education early intervention preschool grant to the list of programs for which the Controller is required to provide in each warrant a portion of the total amount certified by the Superintendent during the fiscal year.(3) Existing law requires the Instructional Quality Commission to develop and submit to the State Board of Education, on or before December 31, 2022, and the state board to adopt, modify, revise, or reject, as prescribed, on or before March 31, 2023, model curricula relative to (A) the Vietnamese American refugee experience, (B) the Cambodian genocide, and (C) Hmong history and cultural studies, as specified, for use in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. Existing law requires the commission to develop and submit to the state board, on or before December 31, 2021, and the state board to adopt, modify, revise, or reject, as prescribed, on before March 31, 2022, a model curriculum in Native American studies to ensure quality courses of study in Native American studies.Existing law, contingent upon the enactment of legislation during the 2021–22 Regular Session prescribing the process for the development of model curricula for Native American studies, the Vietnamese American refugee experience, the Cambodian genocide, and Hmong history and cultural studies, appropriates $1,200,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent to support the development of those model curricula.This bill would replace the requirement that the commission develop, and that the state board adopt, modify, revise, or reject, the model curricula with a requirement that the department use the $1,200,000 in appropriated funds to enter into a contract with a county office of education or a consortium of county offices of education for the purpose of developing model curricula related to (A) the Vietnamese American refugee experience, (B) the Cambodian genocide, (C) Hmong history and cultural studies, and (D) Native American studies, as provided. The bill would impose different 2022 deadlines for the department, in collaboration with, and subject to the approval of, the executive director of the state board, to enter into the contracts for developing the model curricula,
