SECTION 2660-2662



2660.  A guardian or conservator may at any time file with the court
a petition tendering the resignation of the guardian or conservator.
Notice of the hearing on the petition shall be given for the period
and in the manner provided in Chapter 3 (commencing with Section
1460) of Part 1. The court shall allow such resignation when it
appears proper, to take effect at such time as the court shall fix,
and may make any order as may be necessary to deal with the
guardianship or conservatorship during the period prior to the
appointment of a new guardian or conservator and the settlement of
the accounts of the resigning guardian or conservator.




2662.  Whenever the court grants a petition removing the guardian or
conservator of a minor ward or conservatee or tendering the
resignation of the guardian or conservator of a minor ward or
conservatee, if the court does not immediately appoint a successor
guardian or conservator, the court shall at the same time appoint a
responsible adult to make educational decisions for the minor until a
successor guardian or conservator is appointed. Whenever the court
suspends or limits the powers of the guardian or conservator to make
educational decisions for a minor ward or conservatee, the court
shall at the same time appoint a responsible adult to make
educational decisions for the minor ward or conservatee until the
guardian or conservator is again authorized to make educational
decisions for the minor ward or conservatee. An individual who would
have a conflict of interest in representing the child may not be
appointed to make educational decisions. For purposes of this
section, "an individual who would have a conflict of interest," means
a person having any interests that might restrict or bias his or her
ability to make educational decisions, including, but not limited
to, those conflicts of interest prohibited by Section 1126 of the
Government Code, and the receipt of compensation or attorneys' fees
for the provision of services pursuant to this section. A foster
parent may not be deemed to have a conflict of interest solely
because he or she receives compensation for the provision of services
pursuant to this section.
