Transcript JULY 197^ NEWSLETTER PAGE 3 Textbook Review "Textbook review" means reading texts proposed for adoption in the fall, and documenting any objections (preferably with suggested revisions). In cooperation with a statewide NOW Education Task Force project, Austin NOW has been given responsibility for reviewing grades 1-6 science books, grades 1-2 bilingual books, and kindergarten books. All reviews must be completed by July 29. More volunteers are needed to review all the books assigned to us (more than we had expected). It doesn't take very long to do one or two books, so please help if you can. Sample report forms and additional information are available from Barbara Duke. Return the completed clean typed copy to her or to the Austin NOW Education Task Force, c/o Austin Women's Center, 2316 San Gabriel, Austin 78705. Grades 1-6 Science Books: available at Barbara Duke's house, 1907 David St., all month. Call first, 476-0510, and pick up books and instructions. Kindergarten Books and Bilingual, Grades 1-2: available only at Maplewood Elementary School; may not be checked out. Must be used at the school, 9-4, Monday-Friday. Plans will be made for Education Task Force members to meet at the school regularly so that new reviewers can receive initial guidance if the want it. __&?___ By-tews B«visions Chapter members will receive with this newsletter a copy of the proposed revised by-laws for Austin NOW. Revisions to sections 1-15 are only in the form of insertions required by the National Board of NOW (see Section 15). Therefore, while the Chapter should ratify them for the sake of procedural consistency, the Chapter in fact has no option to ignore any insertions or to make additional changes. The implementing by-laws are the first set proposed for adoption by the Chapter; previous Chapter implementing procedures had never been codified or ratified. The implementing by-laws were presented and discussed at the June 5 business meeting; further discussion may be held during the business portion of the July 10 meeting. They will be presented for adoption at the July 24 business meeting. ______ a_ps. ______ ______ Qp___ The Austin Rape Crisis Center opens July 1. It will be staffed every night, 9 pm to 9 am, with three trained volunteers. The phone number there Is 472-RAPE. Rape vlotlms who call in will be told what procedures are required by the police in order to prosecute; volunteers will accompany the woman through the police and hospital procedures If she wishes. (If the victim goes directly to the police or hospital, she will be told of the Center and offered Its services.) The Center will also provide referrals for counselling and other services as needed by the victim. 472-RAPE will be answered 24 hours/day. Center Director Lee Donaldson will be in her office at various times during the day, generally In the morning. The rest of the time, an answering service will answer if volunteers aren't there, and will relay messages to Lee. The Center hopes to be staffed round-the-clock beginning October 1. More volunteers (men as well as women) are needed to staff the Rape Crisis Center. If you are interested, please call Lee Donaldson at 472-RAPE. A series of training sessions for new volunteers will begin in early July.
