In accordance with California Education Code Section 56205[b] and 56205[b], this serves as public notice that a public hearing will be held at the next meeting of the North Region Special Education Plan Area (SELPA) Policy Board at 10:00am on June 24, 2021
The North Region SELPA staff and all member Districts stand united with students, staff, local communities, and everyone across the U.S. who has experienced racial bias, violence, or discrimination. I challenge myself and those around me to go further with our actions to stand up to bigotry, hatred, and intolerance. I hope when we look back on 2020 we see how the focus on two viruses (that of Covid-19 and that of systemic racism) caused a tipping point toward making our society a healthier one. In the meantime, we take action as individuals, schools, districts, and communities to refuse (and support others to refuse) racism in our educational mission, because it starts with the words and actions we use to support children. Our influence and responsibility are huge because children look to us for models on "how to be." -- Katy Babcock, North Region SELPA Director.
