Existing law establishes the Office of Education and the Environment in the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to implement the statewide environmental educational program and requires the office, in cooperation with the State Department of Education and the State Board of Education, to develop and implement a unified education strategy on the environment for elementary and secondary schools in the state.

Existing law requires the office to develop a model environmental curriculum incorporating certain environmental principles and to submit the model curriculum for consideration and approval, as prescribed.

This bill would expressly authorize the office to revise the model curriculum, as needed, and would provide for the review of and comment on a revision.

Existing law requires the State Department of Education to make the curriculum available electronically and requires the California Environmental Protection Agency to assume the costs associated with the printing of the approved model curriculum.

This bill would instead require CalRecycle to make the curriculum available electronically and would delete the requirement with regard to the assumption of those costs. The bill would require CalRecycle to coordinate with specified state agencies to facilitate use of the model environmental curriculum and would authorize CalRecycle and those state agencies to collaborate with other specified entities to implement the program.

Existing law establishes the Environmental Education Account in the State Treasury and authorizes the California Environmental Protection Agency to expend the moneys in the account, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for purposes of the program. Existing law authorizes the California Environmental Protection Agency to enter into an agreement with an external fiscal agent with regard to contributions received for the purpose of the program, until January 1, 2013, and requires an annual report to the Legislature in this regard.

This bill would instead authorize CalRecycle to expend the funds in the account and would repeal the authorization for the agreement with an external fiscal agent. Hide
