Summary

In reporting levels of attainment on the performance indicators by
each public school, school district, the charter school institute (institute),
and the state as a whole, the bill requires the department of education
(department) to include for the 2021-22 school year data concerning the
percentage of students who contributed to the state longitudinal academic
growth indicator.

Under current law, the department is required to annually
determine the levels of attainment on various performance indicators for
each public school, school district, the institute, and the state as a whole.
Furthermore, under current law, the department was not required to
determine the levels of attainment of each public school, school district,
the institute, or the state as a whole for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school
years. For the 2021-22 school year, the bill requires the department to
determine the level of attainment for each public school, school district,
the institute, and the state as a whole, based on the statewide targets
required for the 2018-19 school year.
Under current law, for purposes of calculating a school district's
or the institute's consecutive years on performance watch, the department
is required to count the school district's accreditation rating for the
2022-23 school year as if it were consecutive to the 2019-20 school year.
The bill suspends counting a school district's accreditation rating until the
2023-24 school year.
Under current law, so long as a school district or the institute
performs at a level consistent with being accredited with priority
improvement plan or lower, a state review panel is required to consider
various criteria in evaluating performance and recommending actions.
The bill adds to these criteria consideration of a school district's or the
institute's 2022-23 accreditation category or the public school's 2022-23
plan type.
Under current law, the school transformation grant program
generally provides funding to school districts, the institute, and charter
schools that are implementing priority improvement or turnaround plans.
For grants awarded in the 2022-23 budget year, the bill extends grant
eligibility to school districts, the institute, and charter schools that are
implementing improvement plans.
