The short answer is “no”. California Education Code, Section 45125.2 allows 3 methods to control construction contractors on school grounds who may be left alone while on campus.  Here it is:

45125.2 is the section on construction contractors.

45125.2.  (a) A school district contracting with an entity for the
construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or repair of a school
facility where the employees of the entity will have contact, other
than limited contact, with pupils shall ensure the safety of the
pupils by one or more of the following methods:
   (1) The installation of a physical barrier at the worksite to
limit contact with pupils.
   (2) Continual supervision and monitoring of all employees of the
entity by an employee of the entity whom the Department of Justice
has ascertained has not been convicted of a violent or serious
felony. For purposes of this paragraph, an employee of the entity may
submit his or her fingerprints to the Department of Justice pursuant
to subdivision (a) of Section 45125.1 and the department shall
comply with subdivision (d) of Section 45125.1.
   (3) Surveillance of employees of the entity by school personnel.
