Functional Analysis Assessment (aka “Hughes Bill”) is Repealed (K-12)

On July 1, 2013, the Governor approved an education omnibus trailer bill, Assembly Bill (“AB”) 86, which among other issues, effectively repealed the mandate for Local Education Agencies (“LEAs”) to complete a Functional Analysis Assessment (“FAA” aka “Hughes Bill”) for students who receive special education services and have behavior issues. As urgency legislation, AB 86 was effective on July 1, 2013.
