Existing law provides for a formula for the calculation of general purpose apportionments of state funds to community colleges. Existing law provides a separate formula for the allocation of apportionments of state funds to community colleges, which uses the numbers of full-time equivalent students as its basis, for use for apportionments for noncredit instruction and instruction in career development and college preparation.

Commencing with the academic year 2022-2023, this bill authorizes each community college district with an instructional agreement with a public safety agency to submit annually a copy of its most up-to-date instructional services agreement to the Chancellor’s office for review. Agreements renewed or revised may be submitted for review at the time they are renewed or revised. For purposes of this bill, “public safety agency” includes, but is not necessarily limited to, a fire department, a police department, a sheriff’s office, a public agency employing paramedics or emergency medical technicians, the Department of the California Highway Patrol, and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Beginning January 1, 2024, each community college district with an instructional service agreement with a public safety agency may annually submit data to the Chancellor’s office on the course offerings, student enrollment and full-time equivalent students (FTES), and course completion, including data from each academic year beginning 2020-2021.

The bill further requires that on or before December 31, 2024, the Chancellor’s office shall issue a recommendation to the Department of Finance and the Legislature, on the instructional service agreement FTES apportionment that community college districts are eligible to claim after reviewing the data submitted by districts.

(AB 1942 amends Section 84750.4 of the Education Code.)
