Hall Legislation to Increase Efficiency at LAUSD Signed Into Law
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed AB 1293 into law by Assistant Speaker pro Tempore Isadore Hall (D- Compton), which will improve hiring efficiencies within the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
LAUSD is the largest school district in the state of California, with over 83,000 employees serving over 680,000 students throughout Los Angeles County. Due to the unique job requirements of certain classified employees and the amount of time it can take to hire an individual, the district has experienced significant delays in filling various classified positions.
To address this inefficiency, AB 1293 will allow LAUSD to quickly hire qualified individuals into an additional nine employee classifications including accountant, assistant contract supervisor, contract assistant, coordinating contract assistant, principal financial analyst, principal administrative analyst, senior administrative analyst, senior administrative assistant and senior financial analyst.
"Now more than ever, it is important that we find ways to cut red tape and help people throughout Los Angeles County get back to work," said Assemblymember Hall "AB 1293 is a critical tool for LAUSD to be able to identify and hire specialized employees quickly and continue the important reforms at work throughout the district."
AB 1293 was approved on a bi-partisan vote of 73-0 in the Assembly and 40-0 in the Senate.
This measure is Assemblymember Hall's first successful legislation since taking office in December 2008.
