Introduced by Assembly Member Megan Dahle
AB 1326, as introduced, Megan Dahle. School district board vacancies: internet website notifications.
If a vacancy on a school district governing board occurs, or if a resignation of a person on the school district governing board is filed with the county superintendent of schools containing a deferred effective date, existing law requires the school district governing board to, within 60 days of the vacancy or the deferred resignation filing, either order an election or make a provisional appointment of a person to fill the vacancy. Existing law requires, within 10 days of making a provisional appointment, the school district governing board to post a notice of the actual vacancy or the deferred resignation filing, the provisional appointment, and other specified statements in 3 public places in the school district, and, if a newspaper of general circulation is published in the school district, in that newspaper, as specified.
This bill would require a school district governing board to also post the notice on the school district’s internet website and would make nonsubstantive changes to the notice requirements described above. By imposing new duties on school districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
