SB 6192 focuses on implementing strategies to close the educational opportunity based on the recommendations of the educational opportunity gap oversight and accountability committee. The bill implements strategies to improve educational and excellence and opportunity for certain demographic groups, including English language learners. The bill’s strategies focus on: reducing the time students of color are excluded from school due to suspension and expulsion, enhancing cultural competence for educators and staff, endorsing all educators in English language learners and second language acquisition, analyzing the opportunity gap through deeper disaggregation of student demographic data, investing in the recruitment, hiring, and retention of educators of color, and incorporating integrated student services and family engagement.
