County Oversight: Valenzuela Case Settlement (Flexible Funds)

Funding for this program is unrestricted pursuant to SBX3 4 (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), enacted February 2009. For additional information, please refer to the Action on 2008 and 2009 Budget Acts Web page.

Before 2008-09, the funds were restricted for county office of education (COE) oversight purposes as part of the Valenzuela v. O'Connell (Valenzuela) case settlement. COE oversight includes verifying that eligible pupils of local educational agencies participating in the California High School Exit Exam Intensive Instruction and Services program are informed that they are entitled to receive intensive instruction and services for up to two consecutive academic years after completion of grade 12 or until the pupil has passed both parts of the exam. In addition, COEs verify that pupils who have elected to receive CAHSEE intensive instruction and services are being served.
