Assembly Bill 86 (AB 86), the Education Omnibus Trailer Bill, Chapter 48, Statutes of 2013, repealed regulations and added state statute that addressed positive behavioral intervention plans. According to the Senate floor analysis, the intent of these changes is to modify “the Behavioral Intervention Plan mandate to align it more closely with federal law and reduce unnecessary costs, while maintaining important protections for students with disabilities.”
In accordance with Assembly Bill 110, California’s 2013–2014 budget bill, the California Department of Education (CDE) is required to provide oversight of, and technical assistance and monitoring to, local educational agencies regarding changes to the requirements related to the identification and provision of behavioral intervention services included in AB 86.
