Williams Lawsuit

In 2004, Governor Schwarzenegger reached settlement on a lawsuit that alleged that the state failed to provide public school students with equal access to impoverished students. The role of the compliance coordinator is to assist schools in the implementation of the Williams Legislation process in the following topic areas:

  • Instructional Textbooks and Materials
  • Facilities
  • School Accountability Report Card (SARC)
  • Uniform Complaint Procedures
  • Teacher Misassignments

MCOE provides technical assistance in all of the topic areas. District Superintendents and District Boards receive quarterly and annual reports regarding the results and reviews of the on going Williams Legislation oversight during the academic school year.
