Assemblymember O’Donnell Introduces the Pathways to College Act

(Sacramento) – Joined by educators and students, Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) introduced AB 1951, the Pathways to College Act, at a State Capitol press conference. The measure will open doors to higher education for parents and students by allowing school districts to offer 11th grade students college admissions tests like the SAT or ACT during the school day instead of the state-required assessment at no cost to students. “As a teacher for more than 20 years and as Chair of the Assembly Education Committee, I know this bill will help reduce testing time and provide teachers and students more time to bridge the gap in learning,” said Assemblymember O’Donnell. “This bill is about equity, helping students go to college and moving California forward.” Watch more in this Assembly Access video.
