NEWS & NOTES FROM CCBD
Tell the Senate - DO NOT Overturn ESSA Regulations!!!!!!!!!
The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to overturn the U.S. Department of Education's regulation implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act's (ESSA) core requirement that schools be held accountable for the performance of historically marginalized students, including students with disabilities. Congress has never before voted to overturn an education regulation. The Department issued this regulation after the public, including both educators and students and their families, filed over 21,000 comments. The U.S. Senate will vote soon on whether to follow the House and overturn the regulation. Please WRITE YOUR SENATORS and ask them to vote "No" on House Joint Resolution 57 that would overturn the ESSA accountability regulation and to protect the rights of marginalized students, including students with disabilities.
The ESSA provides states with flexibility in how they identify schools where students are struggling, how they will hold those schools accountable, and how the states will support those schools. But the ESSA also provides strong "guardrails," to ensure that schools actually help students, including students with disabilities, learn and achieve proficiency. The ESSA also requires states to issue a "report card" for every public school in the state, so that parents can make informed decisions about where their children will attend school.
WRITE YOUR SENATORS! The Senate will vote on whether to overturn the ESSA accountability regulation soon - perhaps as soon as next week.
WRITE YOUR SENATORS and tell them to vote "No" on House Joint Resolution 57!

Opportunity to Participate in a Research Study
January 25, 2017
Dear CCBD members,
We are pleased to announce a survey study which seeks to determine the college preparation and job support needs of teachers who work with children with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). The study is being conducted by Leroy Smith for his Walden University dissertation. The researcher invites participation by all teachers of students with Emotional Disturbance, Severe or Serious Emotional Disorders, Behavior Emotional Disabilities, Emotional Impairment, or Emotional Behavior Disorders.
CCBD recognizes the importance of empirical research in advancing efforts to improve educational outcomes for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. As a service to our members, CCBD considers requests to link members to surveys as per the guidelines below, both of which have been met for this study.
1. CCBD reviews requests to promote field studies which include the survey to be administered and evidence of IRB approval for the study.
2. CCBD will consider the alignment of field studies with the CCBD mission.
Therefore, the opportunity to participate in this study is made available to you by CCBD; however, endorsements should not be inferred.
If you are willing to provide your opinions to support this important work, please you use the link below to complete the 20 minute survey. The consent form and survey are included in the link. The link will be accessible until March 24, 2017.
Mr. Smith appreciates your consideration of supporting this research to inform practices of preparation and support of teachers of students with emotional and behavioral disorders.
