LPC Staff Retention 2010-11 - Legislative Report

California Department of Education Fiscal Year (FY) 2010-11 Incentives for Child Care Staff Retention Report to the Legislature

Executive Summary

This report is required by Item 6110-196-0001 of Provision 4, Schedule (1.5)(l) of the Budget Act of 2010. It updates the legislative report requirement in Chapter 547, Statutes of 2000 (Assembly Bill 212), California Education Code, Section 8279.7(f).

The Legislature has made available $11,820,000 in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010–11 for child development staff retention activities conducted by the 55 Local Child Care and Development Planning Councils (LPCs) throughout California. This is a $3,180,000 reduction from $15,000,000 provided in prior budget years. The purpose of this program is to improve the retention of qualified child development employees that work directly with children in state-subsidized, Title 5, child development programs. This funding is allocated to LPCs based on the percentage of state-subsidized, center-based child care funds in the county. Alpine, Mariposa, and Sierra Counties do not have any state subsidized center based programs located in their area, and therefore, do not qualify to receive funding for the purposes of this legislation. The remaining 55 counties received a reduced funding allocation based on the previous fiscal year amount.

In accordance with California Education Code 8279.7(f), Attachment A presents a listing of funds by county that was distributed in the FY 2010–11. All participating counties have chosen to use this funding to provide stipends to eligible child development staff to allow staff to pursue additional education, thereby increasing their likelihood of remaining in the field. In accordance with the legislation and the approved guidelines, funds have also been spent on planning and administrative costs associated with the implementation of the approved local plans.
