The Political Reform Act (Government Code sections 81000, et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict-of-interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (2 Cal. Code of Regulations Section 18730) that contains the terms of a standard conflict-of-interest code, which can be incorporated by reference in an agency's code. After public notice and hearing, the standard code may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of 2 Cal. Code of Regulations section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference. This regulation and the attached Appendix, designating positions and establishing disclosure categories, shall constitute the conflict-of-interest code of the State Board of Education (Agency), except as provided below.

Individuals holding designated positions shall file statements of economic interests with the Agency, which will make the statements available for public inspection and reproduction. (Gov. Code Sec. 81008.) Upon receipt of the statements of members of the board and the Executive Director, the agency shall make and retain a copy and forward the originals of these statements to the Fair Political Practices Commission. All other statements will be retained by the Agency.

EXCEPTION: As provided in 2 Cal. Code of Regulations section 18730(b)(1), the definitions contained in the Political Reform Act of 1974 shall apply to the terms used in this Code except that neither the term ?investment? nor the term ?business entity? shall operate to exclude any private school in California, whether or not such school is operated for profit.
