Assembly Bill 1096 – Amends Exiting Law To Allow Community College Districts To Offer Courses Taught In Languages Other Than English

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Dec 06, 2023

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.

(AB 1096 amends Section 30 of the Education Code.)
