Gov. Newsom signed Assembly Bill 86, the bill containing the school reopening package. The bill allows for the expenditure of funds prior to resuming on-campus instruction so schools can more effectively prepare for the return of students; educator vaccination provisions have been expanded from teachers only to include all school staff working with students,; language on the set aside for paraprofessionals has been clarified to reinforce that paraprofessionals would be offering supplemental instruction and support instead of “providing individualized instruction;” and it is now explicit that new requirements will not impact existing agreements in local educational agencies that have already resumed in-person instruction or have plans to do so shortly.
The California County Superintendents Educational Services Association has created an easy to understand “crosswalk” that summarizes the in-person and expanded learning grants associated with the bill.
