VIII.D. Approval of Williams Uniform Complaint Quarterly Report Summary - Second Quarter (October 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017)
Rationale:
The Williams Uniform Complaint Quarterly Report Summary must be presented to the Board of Education for approval each quarter (October 20, 2017; January 19, 2018; April 20, 2018; and July 20, 2018). Upon approval by the Board of Education, the report is then forwarded to the Los Angeles County Superintendent for approval. Attached is the report summary for October 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017. All schools in California are affected by new laws that are the result of the Williams lawsuit settlement. Known as the "Williams legislation," the laws seek to ensure that all students have equal access to the basics of a quality education: textbooks, safe and decent school facilities and qualified teachers. The laws focus on the state's lowest-performing schools, defined as those ranked in deciles 1-3 of the 2003 base Academic Performance Index. Williams creates an expanded role for the county superintendent of schools to monitor and report on low-performing schools. In Los Angeles County, Superintendent and his staff at LACOE are responsible for: - Conducting annual visits of the county's 600 low-performing schools. - Determining whether students have access to sufficient instructional materials and whether buildings are safe, clean and functional. - Monitoring whether teachers have proper classroom assignments and certifications. - Verifying the accuracy of School Accountability Report Cards relevant to instructional materials and facilities maintenance. - Reporting to the governing board of each school district, the county board of education and the county board of supervisors on the state of these schools.
