World Languages Adoption Meeting Logistics

On March 17, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Executive Order allows state bodies covered by the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act (Act) to hold public meetings covered by the Act via web and/or audio teleconferencing. As such, the April 26–30, 2021, reviewer training meeting will be held as an audio/video teleconference and will have a live webcast. Following are options to access the meeting.

You may access the meeting by clicking the link below to access the live World Languages Adoption reviewer training meeting webcast:

If you do not have access to the internet, dial into the World Languages Adoption Meeting using the conference dial-in number below. If you desire to give public comment, do so using the same dial-in number during the specified time.

  • Conference Dial-in Number: (712) 770-4933

  • Members of the public who would like to make comment may do so by calling the telephone number listed above.
  • Members of the public may only sign up or request to speak themselves and may not sign up or be signed up by other speakers.

  • Speakers may not provide comment on behalf of another individual or group who is not present.
  • Speakers may not allocate their allotted time to another speaker.
