School curriculum: parental review.


Existing law requires all primary supplemental instructional materials and assessments, including textbooks, teacher's manuals, films, audio and video recordings, and software, to be compiled and stored by the classroom instructor and made available promptly for inspection by a parent or guardian, as provided. This bill would require a classroom instructor to also provide a parent or a guardian with a copy of the classroom instructor's lesson plan, as defined, upon request, in hard copy or electronic word processor document format, at the parent or guardian's choosing, as provided. By imposing additional duties on classroom instructors, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would authorize school officials to charge for the lesson plan an amount not to exceed the cost of duplication. Existing law requires the curriculum, including titles, descriptions, and instructional aims of every course offered by a public school, to be compiled at least once annually in a prospectus, and requires each schoolsite to make its prospectus available for review upon request, as provided. This bill would require each schoolsite to also publish the prospectus on its internet website, if it maintains an internet website, at least 3 calendar days before the start of the academic year, and would require any changes to the school's prospectus to be reflected on the school's internet website no later than 7 calendar days after the change has been made. To the extent these provisions impose additional requirements on local educational agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. 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 with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
