Three Bills Clear Assembly Education Committee


Thursday, April 11, 2013

(No schools in Santa Barbara County fit this description, but a handful in Ventura County do.) The others, introduced by chair Joan Buchanan — would require school districts to craft child abuse reporting protocols and streamline the teacher dismissal process.
