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 (FPPC) has adopted a regulation, 2 Cal. Code of Regulations section 18730, which contains the terms of a standard Conflict of Interest Code, which can be incorporated by reference, and which may be amended by the (FPPC) to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act after public notice and hearings. Therefore, the terms of 2 Cal. Code of Regulations section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the (FPPC), along with the attached Appendix in which officials and employees are designated and disclosure categories are set forth, are hereby incorporated by reference and constitute the Conflict of Interest Code of the California Department of Education, except as provided below.

Designated employees shall file statements of economic interests with 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.
