County Oversight: Williams 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, funds were restricted for county office of education (COE) oversight purposes as part of the 2004 Williams Case Settlement; each COE must review, monitor, and report on the state of schools ranked in deciles 1 to 3, inclusive, of the 2006 base API. The review includes: teacher training, certification, misassignment, and vacancies; hiring and retention practices of school districts; sufficiency of instructional materials; conditions of facilities that pose an emergency or urgent threat to the health or safety of pupils or staff; and determination of the accuracy of data reported on the school accountability report card with respect to adequate textbooks, instructional materials, and school facilities.
