Proposed State Budget Add-on would hurt SSDHH & Special Needs Students
Proposed State Budget Add-on would hurt SSDHH & Special Needs Students

Sequoia School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing needs your help! The most recent proposed budget from the state legislature includes an add-on that does not include the funding which allows underperforming charter schools to defend their school from charter revocation. As an alternative to funding the process, the legislature’s solution is to bypass the process as it exists now. Which means every charter school receiving a 'D' rating for three years will have their charter automatically revoked and be forced to close without due process.  more
