Our team has produced a set of comprehensive client briefs detailing new education laws that were passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Governor Newsom in 2020. Under normal circumstances, you would receive 8-10 briefs from us each dealing with a broad subject matter area like Curriculum and Instruction, or School Safety. However, COVID-19 severely impacted the legislative process this year. Due to the drastically smaller number of bills that ultimately were signed into law, we have combined several subjects into one broader update on general school operations. This client brief, linked below, is in addition to our brief on Human Resources bills, which you received yesterday, and a brief on School Finance bills, which you will receive in the coming days. Bills signed by the Governor take effect on January 1, 2021, unless the bill specifically states otherwise (e.g., budget bills).CHANGES TO THE LAW
