All K-14 education employees to receive up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave

School classified employees, community college faculty added to earlier benefit

Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill that will provide paid parental leave to all elementary, middle and high school employees, including classified employees and community college faculty.

“I am happy Governor Brown agrees that school employees should not have to choose between bonding with their newborns and having enough money to pay their bills,” said Assemblywoman Nora Campos (D-San Jose), who championed the bill. “AB 2393 will ensure a balance between family and work for all employees.”

Currently, the state gives K-12 teachers the right to receive differential pay while they are on parental leave of up to 12 weeks. However, other employees in education like K-14 classified employees and community college faculty do not have the same right.

The bill corrects an inequity in the law by providing paid parental leave to all school employees that work to educate and raise our children, Campos said. This bill ensures that an existing benefit, differential pay, is expanded to create a more compassionate and rational approach to parental leave.

The California Federation of Teachers (CFT) was a co-sponsor of AB 2393 with Campos.

“CFT believes this child/parent bonding time is critical to a child's physical as well as social-emotional growth and helps to ensure that they will be both successful in school and in life," CFT President Joshua Pechthalt said.

The measure was also advocated by the California Teachers Association, California School Employees Association and the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges.
