IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, SCHOOL FACILITIES, and TEACHER VACANCIES OR MISASSIGNMENTS
State law requires the following:
1. There should be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials. Each student, including English learners, must have a textbook or instructional materials, or both, to use in class and to take home to complete required homework assignments
2. School facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.
3. There should be no teacher vacancies or misassignments as defined in
paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (h).
(2) “Misassignment” means the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position for which the employee does not hold a legally recognized certificate or credential or the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position that the employee is not otherwise authorized by statute to hold.
(3) “Teacher Vacancy” means a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of the year for an entire year or, if the position is for a one-semester course, a position to which a single designed certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of a semester for an entire semester.
