Summary as introduced:
Cultural diversity competency training of school personnel. Requires all persons subject to the Virginia Licensure Regulations for School Personnel to complete cultural diversity training as a condition of licensure and license renewal, effective July 1, 2003. Due to current and projected demographic changes in Virginia's population, which have resulted in greater racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity among citizens and school-age children, school personnel require an understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures represented in the public schools. Currently, certain initiatives in progress or under consideration at the Department of Education reflect the necessity to provide cultural diversity competency training in professional staff development of school personnel, including proposed revisions to the licensure regulations. This bill is a recommendation of the Joint Subcommittee Studying the Overrepresentation of African-American Students in Special Education Programs.
