Senate Bill 369 – Requires Model Curriculum Related To Vietnamese American Refugee Experience Cover The Period From Vietnam War And The Fall Of Saigon In 1975 To 2000; And Cambodian American History And Heritage
Existing law requires the development of model curriculum relate to the Vietnamese American refugee experience by September 1, 2024. Model curriculum defined as various teaching tools to assist teachers in teaching about, the Fall of Saigon in 1975 and the conditions that led to the resettlement of Vietnamese people in the United States, among other things.
SB 369 amends the definition of “model curriculum” to specify that it must cover the period from the Vietnam War and the Fall of Saigon in 1975 to the year 2000, which captures the experience of postwar Vietnamese immigrants in the United States.
Existing law also requires the development of model curriculum by September 1, 2024 related to the Cambodian genocide. The bill revises and recasts these provisions and requires the development of model curriculum instead relate to Cambodian American history and heritage.
(SB 369 amends Sections 33540.2 and 33540.4 of the Education Code.)
