8.c.3. Adopt Amended Annual Resolution No. 35 – Teacher Assignment/Misassignment Monitoring
Recommended Motion:
Board approval is requested for adoption of the amended Resolution No. 35 - an annual resolution for Teacher Assignment/Misassignment Monitoring allowing legal provisions that authorized staff to teach in their 2019 - 2020 school year assignments. 
Rationale:
In 1989, Senate Bill 435 was passed, which requires that all California school districts annually review the credential authorizations for their certificated employees. This is commonly referred to as “assignment/misassignment monitoring.”  Furthermore, Education Code §44258.9 requires county superintendents of schools in turn to monitor school districts to ensure that there are no teacher assignments outside the authorization of the teachers’ credentials.

The District must ensure that all certificated staff are assigned appropriately.  District staff work with Principals to review all master schedules and compare assignments to the credentials of the individual in place.  When there is an assignment for which there is no specific credential authorization, or when the employee has talents not evidenced by his or her credential, Education code allows assignment options that will permit the services.  There are prerequisites that the credential holder must have completed in order to qualify for an assignment option.  These assignment options require that the employee provide written consent that he or she agrees to the assignment, and the Board approves a resolution to permit these alternative authorizations.  

In Alvord Unified School District there are five basis scenarios under which we utilize assignment options.  The District uses the options in the following ways:

1. Education code 44256(b) is used when a multiple subject teacher is assigned to a departmentalized classroom.
2. Education code 44258.7 is used when a teacher who holds a credential other than physical education is teaching a sports physical education class.  
3. Education code 44263 is used when a teacher who holds any credential is teaching in a departmentalized setting for which they are qualified for.
4. Education code 44865 is used to allow any credentialed teacher to teach in a specialized setting such as home and hospital or continuation school.
5. Education code 44265.1 is used to allow a teacher who holds an education specialist credential that authorizes him or her to provide instruction to individuals with mild and moderate disabilities to provide instruction to pupils with autism.  

The District has verified that assignment options used during the 2019 - 2020 school year are appropriate, and that the conditions required by law have been met.
