Centers Open for In-Person Assessments; Two Killed At NJ Birthday Party; Bail Increased For 2 VA Men

The School District of Philadelphia will open Specialized Services Regional Centers beginning Jan. 25f to determine student eligibility for special education supports and services. These centers will operate out of six schools located across the city and will allow trained staff to conduct in-person student assessments and complete evaluations and reevaluations needed to inform Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). The centers are open to the approximately 600 students who were identified by school teams as needing in-person assessments who cannot engage in virtual assessments. Assessors have begun reaching out to eligible students and their families to schedule the assessments.

"We remain focused on strengthening educational supports for our students with special needs while schools remain virtual," said Superintendent William R. Hite, Jr., Ed.D. "Parents, teachers, administrators and staff have continued to adjust and be creative to best support our students with diverse needs. Opening these centers is a crucial next step to help us evaluate and meet their needs during these challenging times."

Two people were shot and killed at a birthday party in Burlington County early Sunday morning, 1/24. It happened at 1 a.m. on the 200 block of Dogwood Road in Edgewater Park. 29-year-old James Gist III of Westampton and 29-year-old Marcus Thompson of Willingboro were pronounced dead at the scene. They were the only two who were struck by gunfire. The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office says that approximately 10 people were gathered at the home for a birthday before gunfire erupted. The circumstances and motive behind the shootings are under investigation. No arrests have been made. If you have any information, contact Burlington County Central Communications at 609-265-7113.

Two Virginia men that had been arrested near the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City last November during the vote count after being found carrying weapons are now back in jail after violating their bail conditions by attending the rally/riot at the Capitol earlier this month. Prosecutors showed video evidence that 42-year-old Joshua Macias and 61-year-old Antonio LaMotta were on Capitol grounds on January 6 and argued they had violated their bail by helping incite a riot. Common Pleas Court Judge Crystal Bryant-Powell increased their bail, adding $100,000 to Macias and $15,000 to LaMotta. They had been free on $750,000 bail each. They have to pay 10% of the increases to leave jail again. Their defense argued that they did not break any laws just by being at the Capitol. There was no evidence provided that they ever entered the building. Last week, a judge barred them from attending rallies or using social media. Last week, the prosecution asked the judge to revoke bail entirely, a request he denied.
