ARTS EDUCATION 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 12–16, 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 Arts Education Adoption reviewer training meeting webcast:

If you do not have access to the internet, dial into the Arts Education 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) 432-4993
    Participant Access Code: 5906620#
    Participant Features
    *3 Exit – exit the call
    *6 Mute/Unmute – caller-controlled muting

Once the host places the call for “Q & A” (public comment):

Participants hear the voice prompt: “The Q & A session has started. To ask your question, please press *6.” Participants are prompted to press 1 to confirm and be placed in the “Q&A” queue. The host can click a participant name or caller number to allow the participant to make their comment.

Prior to making public comment, speakers who are watching the meeting via live webcast should make sure the volume on their computer is muted to avoid any echoing or feedback sounds during the call.

NOTE: The voice prompt is automated and uses the term “Q&A session.” However, during public comment the committee will not respond to comments or questions from the public.

PUBLIC COMMENT
  • Public comment will take place no sooner than the time stated on the agenda.
  • 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 will be allotted a prescribed maximum amount of time, at the discretion of the facilitators, based upon the number of 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.
  • Speakers shall refrain from using profanity and shall conduct themselves in a respectful manner.
  • Written public comments may also be submitted via the VAPA@cde.ca.gov mailbox. Comments received will be submitted, as received, to the IMRs and CREs prior to deliberations in July and will not be read aloud.
THE ORDER OF BUSINESS MAY BE CHANGED WITHOUT NOTICE.

All times are approximate; the timing and order of activities may change. The Arts Education Adoption reviewer training will commence, recess, and reconvene as necessary throughout the week. The outline of activities is provided for convenience only. The actual order of business may be changed without notice by the facilitator to accommodate the needs of members, invited presenters, and key staff.
