By the end of January, the state will publish the initial list of hundreds of low-performing California schools that must receive intensive help under the Every Student Succeeds Act. The State Board of Education has now approved how districts with any of those schools must verify what they’re doing to turn those schools around.
Florida legislators sent the School Safety Act, with a controversial component, to Gov. Ron DeSantis for a signature. The bill expands the voluntary “school guardian” program, which currently allows school staff, including teachers, to be trained and armed.
