Assemblyman Hagman's Bill To Help Chino Valley Unified Passes The Assembly Education Committee

AB 1988 Exempts CVUSD From a Possible Fine of $7 Million

Sacramento- Assemblyman Curt Hagman (R- Chino Hills) is pleased to announce the passage of AB 1988 through the Assembly Education Committee. The bill saves taxpayer dollars while exempting Chino Valley Unified from a $7 Million fine.

Assembly Bill 1988 would deem Chino Valley Unified School District to have completed 180 days of instruction in the 2008-09 school year for the purposes of computing any instructional time penalty associated with the Longer Year Incentive program, as long as the district follows a list of requirements.

"This is a common sense bill. The District made a mistake and they're being properly punished for it. There is no need to further misuse taxpayer funds. I am proud that the Education Committee found it wise to put the bill through without a problem. This bill will help this district stretch their education resources during a time when they're already stretched thin" said Assemblyman Hagman.
