(1) Existing law prescribes the minimum length of time for the instructional school year and the minimum number of instructional minutes per schoolday. Existing law imposes fiscal penalties on school districts and county offices of education that fail to maintain those minimum instructional times per school year or schoolday. This bill would deem the Chino Valley Unified School District to have offered the minimum number of days of instruction in the 2008â€“09 school year if the district meets specified conditions, including offering 10 additional schooldays between June 15, 2009, and July 1, 2011. (2) The California Constitution provides that a special statute is invalid in any case if a general statute can be made applicable. This bill would declare that, due to unique circumstances applicable only to the Chino Valley Unified School District, a general statute cannot be made applicable and a special statute is necessary. (3) The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 19, 2008. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on December 19, 2008, pursuant to the California Constitution. (4) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
