AB 2359 – Require The Compton Community College District Board Of Trustees Serve As The Personnel Commission At The End Of The Suspension And Establishes New Requirements Following The District’s Repayment Of The Emergency Apportionment
Existing law authorizes the board of governors to suspend the authority of the Board of Trustees of the Compton Community College District (the District) until the chancellor, the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team, the Director of Finance, and the Governor concur with the special trustee that the District, for 2 consecutive academic years, has met certain requirements relating to a comprehensive assessment and a recovery plan. Existing law, in the event of a suspension, authorizes the chancellor to appoint a special trustee to manage the district, as specified. Existing law, until July 1, 2029, requires that the Board of Trustees of the District assume those powers and duties of the District’s Personnel Commission that the Board of Trustees determines are necessary for the management of the personnel functions of the District.
AB 2359 repeals the authority of the District’s Board of Trustees to assume the powers and duties of the District’s Personnel Commission until July 1, 2029. Instead, the bill requires at the end of the suspension that the Board of Trustees assume the powers of the personnel commission. The bill authorizes the Board of Trustees to establish the personnel commission in an advisory commission, beginning in the year the District repays the emergency apportionment.
Finally, the bill provides that beginning one calendar year after the District has made its final repayment of the emergency apportionment; the District may reinstate the personnel commission to exercise the powers or duties necessary for the management of the personnel functions of the District. On or before September 15, 2023, and annually thereafter, the District must provide an update on the repayment of the emergency apportionment to the Department of Finance, the Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance, and the Senate Budget Subcommittee on Education.
(AB 2359 amends Section 71093 of the Education Code, and amends Section 29 of Chapter 23 of the Statutes of 2017.)
