AB 1859 – Extends Appointment Exception For LAUSD

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Nov 12, 2020

Existing law provides that in a school district with a pupil population over 400,000, the school district may make an appointment for specified positions from other than the first three ranks of eligible applicants on the eligibility list if the position requires a second language, driver’s license, specialized license, or a specific gender, until December 31, 2020. Existing law requires a school district to study the effectiveness of the selection method, the vacancy rates for each class, and the length of time to hire for each class, and to submit a report of its findings to any affected labor union.

AB 1859 extends the operation of these provisions from December 31, 2020, until January 1, 2027, for the Los Angeles Unified School District only.

(AB 1859 amends Section 45277.5 of the Education Code.)
