Letter to Home Committee on Schooling & the Workforce on Markup of H.R. 3889, the Scholar Success Act, and H.R. 3990, the Encouraging Innovative and Effective Academics Act. On October 29-31, 2019 the U.S. Home of Representatives Committee on Schooling and Labor marked up (reviewed and voted to approve) the College Affordability Act ( H.R. 4674 ) which would reauthorize the Larger Training Act and overhaul major features of upper education and accreditation.
The invoice would require districts where not less than 70% of the scholars are educationally deprived, homeless, or in foster care to develop and implement a plan to increase guardian and scholar knowledge of behavioral health issues and therapy choices.
On November 1, 2019, the U.S. Division of Training ( USDE ) published closing rules on accreditation, innovation and different topics, reflecting the draft consensus language authorised by the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee that met earlier this 12 months.
HB 3026 (Talarico, D-Spherical Rock): Would require that faculty districts with 400 or more college students have a ratio of 400:1 students to behavioral well being professionals (which includes faculty counselors, licensed specialists in school psychology, social employees, and licensed professional counselors).
Pre-appointment hearings are one of the vital attention-grabbing facets of select committee work, and through my time the education committee has held hearings for the public appointments of the Chief Regulator of Ofqual, the Chief Inspector of Ofsted, the Chair of the Office for Students and the Chair of the Social Mobility Fee.
