SB 468 received the Governor's approval on September 25, 2017. The bill requires that student board members receive all meeting materials presented to the board members.

SB 532 has officially been signed by the Governor on September 21, 2015! This is really a testament to how much important work we can do at the capitol. The bill mandates each school board must create a student school board member position within 60 days of receiving a qualified petition from the student body. You can read more about the bill in an article written by the L.A. Times, here.

 

AB 1204 was signed by the Governor on Friday, October 2, 2015. This bill encourages the State Board of Education to add a student member to the Instructional Quality Commission, the panel which decides on curriculum and textbooks for the entire state of California. This has been a pet project of sorts of 2015-16 State President Shawn Ahdout; he had been personally pushing for this bill since November of 2015. The Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) co-sponsored this bill with CASC and really helped drive the bill forward.

 

SB 1422 has been approved by the Governor on August 25, 2010. This bill permits student governments, inclusive of grades 9-12, to establish a committee, consisting of students and teachers, to draft a survey by which students provide feedback to teachers.
