AB 2038 – Amends Existing Law To Allow The Los Angeles Unified School District To Expand The Definition Of Teacher For Purposes Of Calculating The Administrative Employees-To-Teacher Ratio

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Oct 28, 2022

Existing law sets forth the maximum ratio of administrative employees to every 100 teachers in various types of school districts.

AB 2038 amends existing law to exempt the Los Angeles Unified School District from the current ratio calculation and amends the definition of teacher. For purposes of calculating the administrative employee-to-teacher ratio in the 2022-2023 to 2024-2025 fiscal year, the bill authorizes the Los Angeles Unified School District to include in the definition of “teacher,” teachers who spend a majority of their time with pupils as intervention specialists or teachers who spend a majority of their time on a school campus providing training, coaching, or professional development to other teachers, or both of those.

The bill requires the Los Angeles Unified School District to submit various reports related to the administrative employee-to-teacher ratio to the Superintendent, the Department of Finance, and the budget committees of both houses of the Legislature. The bill also makes conforming and nonsubstantive changes.

(AB 2038 amends Sections 41401, 41403, 41404, and 41404.5 of the Education Code.)
