I read and read the text of the bill but I find no definition of student support services. The closest they get to that is in Line 41 of the bill:
(d) To the extent money is available, ensure that pupils have access to social workers, mental health workers, counselors, psychologists, nurses, speech-language pathologists, audiologists and other school-based specialized instructional support personnel or community-based medical or behavioral providers of health care
And WHAT the heck are “other school-based specialized instructional support personnel or community-based medical or behavioral providers of health care“?
AB275 leaves the details to the bureaucracy. See Line 3:
What a great example of legislators passing the buck to un-elected un-accountable bureaucrats — an object lesson in how the “deep state” is created and nourished.
That’s one reason to veto it.
The other reason is that we have gotten so depraved in our thinking about education that we are throwing money at all these non-educational social services to be provided IN SCHOOL. When has the Department of Education replaced the various local and state welfare departments?
That’s not only another reason to veto this bill, but also to dismantle the entire house of cards built on the “education” Titles in the NRS and the USC.
It is now going to the Governor. Please ask the Governor to Veto it.
(Information from Power2Parent): AB275 requires the establishment of a statewide framework for providing integrated student supports for pupils and their families.
According to the bill, Student Support means any measure designed to assist a pupil in improving his or her academic achievement and education attainment and maintaining stability and positivity in his or her life.
This bill provides for community-based medical or behavioral providers of health care. This bill will allow Planned Parenthood clinics and activity in our public schools. The bill is over-broad and will open students to a variety of organizations, “improving positivity in his or her life.”
