CA AB 2887

Title: School safety plans: medical emergency procedures.
Author: Brian K. Maienschein

Summary
AB 2887, as amended, Maienschein. School safety plans: medical emergency procedures. (1) Existing law expresses the intent of the Legislature, for all public schools teaching kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive, that are operated by a school district to develop, in cooperation with identified partners and other persons who may be interested in the prevention of campus crime and violence, a comprehensive school safety plan, as defined.This bill would revise that statement of intent to include local emergency medical services personnel and other persons who may be interested in the health and safety of pupils among the identified cooperating partners, and would revise the definition of “safety plan” for purposes of the statement of intent to expand its scope, as specified.Under existing law, each school district and county office of education is responsible for the overall development of a comprehensive school safety plan for each of its schools operating kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive, in cooperation with certain local entities. Existing law requires that the plan include identification of appropriate strategies and programs that will provide or maintain a high level of school safety and address the school’s procedures for complying with existing laws related to school safety.This bill would additionally require, as part of the comprehensive school safety plan when the plan is next reviewed and updated on or after January 1, 2025, procedures to respond to incidents involving an individual experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest or a similar life-threatening medical emergency while on school grounds, as provided. By imposing additional requirements on local educational agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.Existing law prohibits a chartering authority from denying a petition for the establishment of a charter school unless it makes written factual findings supporting at least one of specified bases for denial. One of those bases for denying a petition is if the petition does not contain a reasonably comprehensive description of the development of a school safety plan that includes the same safety topics required in the comprehensive school safety plan of a school district or county office of education.This bill would authorize a chartering authority to deny a charter school petition that does not include in its proposed development of a school safety plan the same provisions on procedures relating to the response to incidents involving an individual experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest or a similar life-threatening medical emergency while on school grounds as are required by the bill in a school district or county office of education comprehensive school safety plan. The bill also would make a change to conform a certain requirement for the approval of charter petitions by school districts and for the approval of countywide charters by county offices of education. To the extent the bill imposes additional duties on chartering authorities, which include governing boards of school districts and county boards of education, when reviewing the petition for the establishment of a charter school, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.(2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
