Executive Board Transition

CASCWA's 2022-23 State President has called for their first CASCWA State meeting to take place on June 21, 2022.  This is the beginning of the transition of officers on the State Executive board and at each section's executive board.  This process will be on-going and hopefully the majority of the changes will take place by the start of the 2022-23 school year.  The information below reflects the 2021-22 officers.

We plan on updating the state and each section's information once we receive the changes to be made.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Greetings CASCWA Members and Friends,

I am honored to be CASCWA Southern Section’s President.  Our Southern Section Executive Board includes many of Southern California’s most recognized leaders in the fields of Student Services.  They make up a great team and I am blessed to work with such a talented team.

On February 4th we held the free “Phil Kauble Topical Forum.” Our Forum was entitled REsupporting Student Behavior.

There were three sessions.  The first was on hot topics and legal Issues with attorneys Ron Wenkart and Alefia Mithalwala.  The second session was on school safety with Daniel Marmolejo and Rich Randolph.  The final session was a panel presentation with Katarina Schanz, Diana Twiss, Yvette Magafia and moderated by Leslie Hansen.

This turned out to be a strong workshop that was important for your daily work.  Links to the workshop flyer and to the registration can be found on our home page at https://cascwa.wildapricot.org/

The power point and the video of the presentations have been placed on the website page.  I am extremely grateful to the entire Southern Section’s team that made this workshop a reality.

Phil Kauble was a giant in our field of CWA.  Lillie Wilson, Shirley Abrahms, Jerry Hime, Milt Dooley, Bill Ybarra are just a few of the team members that came out of the Los Angeles County Office of Education and impacted legislation, publications, workshop presentations and personal communications in all areas of student services.  This workshop carries on in their tradition!

I would like to personally thank Jennifer Kottke for all she has done for CASCWA and Southern Section.  Jennifer is a major part of LACOE.  Her expertise is addressing the needs of homeless education, but she is also an expert in zoom and in organizational coordination.  We thank you for all you have done.

Southern Section takes great pride in our scholarship program.  If you have a student to consider and you are a member, please go to https://cascwa.wildapricot.org/Scholarships for application information.  Dr. Leslie Hanson has done a great job with our 2022 scholarship program.

Be well and be safe,

Vicente Bravo

CASCWA SOUTHERN SECTION 2021 FALL WORKSHOP
The workshop was entitled, “Maximizing Learning Opportunities Through a Focus on Social Emotional Learning!”  It was held on November 5th from 8:30 to 11:30 am.  

Southern Section’s President, Vicente Bravo, brought together a solid workshop committee that focused on a critical issue impacting students throughout California.  They quickly concluded that Social Emotional Learning needed to be the focus of this year’s workshop.

There were three parts to the workshop:

First, there was a student panel.  The panel was moderated by Kevon Lee.  Kevon is an exceptional young man who has overcome much adversity.   After graduating and continuing with his education, Kevon has chosen a life goal of making a positive difference in the lives of others!  We truly appreciate his passion.

Second, there was a panel of experts.  The panel was moderated by Don English, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools.  Don is pulled together several active experts in our field.  They shared their thoughts, beliefs and best practices focusing on SEO learners. The panel of experts included:

Sunny Shen – Director of Prevention & Intervention, Irvine Unified School District

Roy Juarez Jr. – COE & Founder IMPACTtruth

Amanda Deniston – Coordinator of CWA for Moreno Valley Unified School District 

Dr. Helen E. Morgan – Superintendent of Hawthorne School District

Dr. Emily Green – Da Vinci Schools Lead Nurse

The third section was our featured speaker, Ray Culberson.  Ray is an accomplished educator, currently, Chief Business Officer, Real Journey Academies.  Ray is well known throughout California.  He has been a contributor to CASCWA for years and has presented at numerous CASCWA state conferences and workshops.  Ray brought his personal experiences, accomplishments, and true passion for SEO learners.  We are grateful to Ray for being our featured speaker and for his important message to all of our attendees!
