It also requires that information to be disaggregated by subgroups like race, gender, low income status and English language learner status.AB 1672, which passed the Senate Wednesday, had already passed the Assembly earlier in the session, but returned to the Assembly for approval of Senate amendments.Today’s Assembly vote was 55 to 17.
