      2. Edits to the Draft Health Education Framework, Access and Equity, Chapter 7
        SMC Chair Woo reviewed the three edits that the full commission had requested during the March 22 –23, 2018 IQC meeting. The requested edits that were made are:

        • On pages 3 and 4, lines 65–82 there is a new section on Universal Design for Learning. This was added to provide context for the new information in the section on Students with Disabilities. Also, the paragraph on Students Identified as Vulnerable was moved from page 3 to pages 7–8, lines 185–194 to better fit the organization of the chapter. It is now placed with the other sections on student groups that are listed at the beginning of the chapter.

        • Learning from Diverse Role Models in High School on pages 39–41, lines 794–860. The example was re-written to make it more related to health education. In the previous version of the chapter, the example was taken from the science framework.

        • There is a new section, Establishing an Inclusive Health Education Classroom through Universal Design for Learning on pages 43 –46, lines 931–945. This series of tables replaces what were several pages of lists in the previous version of the chapter, many of which were not related to health education content or skills.

          An additional line edit was pointed out, which was to capitalize “Individualized Education Plan (IEP)” and will be fixed in the next round of revisions. A recommendation was made to add the word “deportation” on page 48, line 952 after the word “loss.” The new text will read: “…including the loss, deportation, or incarceration of a family member…”

          A request was made to replace line 596 with people first language for consistency throughout the chapter. A recommendation was made to use the California Dashboard student group terms as the basis for naming student groups. These changes will be made in the next round of revisions.

          ACTION: Commissioner Diaz moved to recommend the changes to the Access and Equity chapter as presented in Attachment 1 with the addition of the minor edits discussed to the full IQC. Commissioner Fairchild seconded this motion. The motion was approved by a unanimous vote of the committee members present (6–0).
