Title: Pupil instruction: homework policy.
Author: Gail Pellerin

Summary
AB 2999, as amended, Schiavo. Pupil instruction: homework policy. Existing law grants pupils, parents, and guardians certain rights regarding the delivery of educational services, including, among others, rights regarding primary supplemental instruction materials. Existing law provides that none of these rights shall be construed as restricting teachers in the assignment of homework.This bill, the Healthy Homework Act, would require each school district, county office of education, and charter school to (1) develop a homework policy for all grades maintained by the local educational agency, as specified, by the start of the 2027–28 school year, (2) formally adopt a final homework policy by the end of the 2027–28 school year, and (3) update the adopted homework policy at least once every 5 years. The bill would authorize a local educational agency to first pilot the homework policy, including during the 2027–28 school year, as specified. The bill would, among other things, require the adopted homework policy to be annually distributed at the beginning of the school year to all certificated staff and administrators, to all pupils and parents or legal guardians, as specified, and by publication on the local educational agency’s internet website and on the internet websites of the individual schools operated by the local educational agency. By imposing additional duties on local educational agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill also would require the State Department of Education, by January 1, 2026, to develop and post on its internet website, guidelines for local educational agencies to use in developing the homework policy, as provided.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
