As many local educational agencies are already aware, Assembly Bill 699 added "citizenship and immigration status" as a protected characteristic for purposes of discrimination and equal protection laws. This new protection went into effect January 1, 2018. In addition, AB 699 outlined a number of mandates that local educational agencies must comply with by July 1, 2018, including adopting policies consistent with the California Attorney General’s model policies.
To assist LEA's in complying with these mandates by July 1, F3 Law recently partnered with the Association of California School Administrators to prepare an informational checklist. The checklist can be downloaded as a pdf here.
This checklist is intended only as a general summary of the mandates required by AB 699. If you have any specific questions on how to comply with these mandates or other AB 699 requirements, please contact one of our six offices.
