The Assistant Speaker pro Tem is collaborating with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction on a bill to preserve funding for school safety plans and new teacher training.
Sacramento - Assemblymember Kevin Mullin has drafted legislation to keep kids safe and ensure our newest teachers receive first-rate training as they begin their careers. Assembly Bill 470 (AB 470) will strengthen the Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) program, an induction program the helps new teachers navigate state requirements. It also preserves the critical School Safety Consolidated Competitive Grant, which provides expert crisis response training to school districts.
“I agree with the governor’s budget proposal to give more funding control to local school districts, but there are programs we can’t afford to lose,” said Assemblymember Mullin. “By protecting two vital programs, AB 470 maintains high caliber preparation for new teachers while keeping kids safe at school.”
