Los Angeles Unified School District Administration; The Los Angeles Mayor's Community Partnership for School Excellence
(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, and except for the authority to negotiate and enforce collective bargaining agreements, all authority exercised by the board and the district superintendent with respect to the schools in the demonstration project shall be transferred to the partnership described in subdivision (a) of Section 35931, which is directed by the mayor. In a manner consistent with districtwide collective bargaining agreements, the partnership may seek waivers, pursuant to Section 35910, from the state board and authority to operate the schools in the demonstration project with maximum flexibility and efficiency.
(b) The schools in the demonstration project shall continue to exist as district schools, and employees at the schools shall be deemed to be district employees with all the rights of district employees.
(c) Schools in the demonstration project shall continue to be funded with district resources, including average daily attendance revenue and state or federal categorical or other targeted funding generated by, or granted based on, the pupils in the schools in each cluster. That funding may also be supplemented by private funds, recorded, and accounted for by the partnership. The LAUSD shall provide funds and may assess costs to partnership schools, provided that these schools shall receive the same benefit from any new or increased local, state, or federal funding that these schools would receive if they were not partnership schools.
(d) The partnership schools and the LAUSD shall develop a budget and cost system that carries out the provisions of this section.
(e) The LAUSD shall not take actions that have negative fiscal consequences for partnership schools due to their participation in the partnership.
