Assembly Bill 1096 – Amends Exiting Law To Allow Community College Districts To Offer Courses Taught In Languages Other Than English
Existing law requires English to be the basic language of instruction in all schools and authorizes the governing board of a school district, community college district, or private school to determine when and under what circumstances instruction may be given bilingually.
AB 1096 amends Education Code Section 30 to authorize a community college to offer courses in languages other than English. Students may enroll in these courses without being required to concurrently enroll in an English as a Second Language course. The bill does not preclude a student from choosing to enroll in an English as a Second Language course.
