VA BLOC attends the BOE Meeting!

Cameron and Melissa would like to thank all of those who attended our brainstorming meeting for the Virginia Board of Education. Thanks to your great ideas and comments Melissa was able to present a very thoughtful statement to the board at the hearing last week. We are confident that they will take these comments, and all others, into consideration, and hopefully, action. We would also like to recognize Education Advocate, LaKyta Williamson Greene for attending the hearing and addressing the board with her important comments regarding mindfulness, therapeutic day treatment, suspension alternatives, and more.

If you were not able to attend the meeting but would like to provide your feedback on suspension alternatives, accreditation standards, and graduation requirements you can email the board at ESSA@doe.virginia.gov.

Continue to follow our page for more updates and if you’d like more information about the Education Advocates or Mental Health Group contact Cameron (cbell@newvirginiamajority.org) or Melissa (mdale@newvirginiamajority.org)
