Governor Jerry Brown's Budget Proposal Reduces High School Science Requirement

Posted on February 6, 2012 at 11:28am 0 Comments

In Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2012–13 budget, he is proposing that school districts have the flexibility to require only one high school science class instead of the two currently mandated by state law. Currently California State law requires that high school students take one course in biological science and one in physical science.  While every high school must provide its students access to the courses required for UC and CSU admission, which include two laboratory sciences in two different…

Morning Mr. Valadez!

I was considering enrollment, but need to know if attending the second session only would still be valuable and/or would stall the progress of the group.  The first session was not an option for me....  Thank you!  Jeanne

Thanks Jerry. Because I'm always asking her science questions, Anne Ybarra suggested that I join. I hear good things about your career from Anne.

It is always an adventure. Thank you for letting me be apart of each one. Science is in such a need for literacy to be the cornerstone for educators and students alike.
This is irregardless of age, grade or gender. Once a person is literate in the language of discovery and the adventures, what doors could be opened. Imagine the levels of achievement that are possible when learning is fun. The rigor becomes the adventure as new worlds are discovered. Learning becomes a life long pursuit.

I am attending the workshop by NASA / Noyce (The Solar Neighborhood: Earth and Energy) at CSUF for the next two weeks. When would be a good time to come by, and what room?

Whats the latest with you? Eager to hear all about what you are doing. Bet you are busier than ever as usual.

Thanks much for the invite to CVSP website 8-)

You know what end of school year is like... we finished up the main goal of preparing our students for CST Science testing of course... now im winding down the school year... doing a carb/fat/protein unit using Educationally Enhanced Super Size Me lessons... next ill move onto chemicals that affect the body like alcohol, tobacco, etc.

Looking forward to catching up with you!

Respectfully,
Scott

Dr. Valadez,
Good to hear from you I'm doing well, not sure about my school tho. How about you? I think I will unable to attend the institute as I will be starting summer school myself. I was accepted into the aspiring admin program and will start on June 25. What are the dates for the institute?
