Tomorrow, 2/13/2019, in a public meeting of the Senate Education and Youth Committee in Room 307 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building at the Georgia State Capitol, SB 48 will be under consideration:
To amend Title 20 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to education, so as to provide for identification of and support for students in pre-kindergarten through second grade with dyslexia
Early identification will greatly increase the effectiveness of any programs we use. If you’re able to attend, get there a few minutes early to sign up for public comment to express your support for Mandatory Early Screening.
They need to hear from us! If you’re not able to make it in person, the meeting will be broadcast live, CLICK HERE TO WATCH.
