EDUCATION CODE
SECTION 8282



8282.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares that the state makes a
substantial, annual investment in preschool, infant and toddler, and
schoolage child development programs for eligible families. It is in
the best interests of children and their families, and the taxpayers
of California, to have information about the development and
learning abilities of children developed in these settings, health
and other information transferred to, or otherwise available to, the
pupil's elementary school.
   (b) When a child in a state-funded preschool or infant and toddler
program will be transferring to a local public school, the preschool
or infant and toddler program shall provide the parent or guardian
with information from the previous year deemed beneficial to the
pupil and the public school teacher, including, but not limited to,
development issues, social interaction abilities, health background,
and diagnostic assessments, if any. The preschool or infant and
toddler program may, with the permission of the parent or guardian,
transfer this information to the pupil's elementary school.
   (c) Any child who has participated in a state subsidized preschool
that maintains results-based standards, including the desired
results accountability system, may have the performance information
transferred to any subsequent or concurrent public school setting.
Any transferred information shall be in summary form and only
accomplished with the permission of the parent or guardian.
