Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a bill making it possible for nonpublic schools to include technology-based learning materials in the curriculum for students with special needs.
The bill passed the state Assembly (76-0) and the Senate (34-0) with unanimous bipartisan support. Introduced by Assembly Member Joe Coto (D-San Jose), AB 1742 will expand the kinds of “technology” permitted in the classroom for students with special needs who attend nonpublic schools. Working with Assembly Member Coto, staff and students from Spectrum Center Schools and Programs presented the bill to the California State Legislature to demonstrate their public support for its adoption.
