2021 Legislative Agenda

´╗┐MSBA Releases Legislative Agenda for 2021 Session
The 2021 Legislative Agenda seeks to work together to ensure every student achieves academically, socially and emotionally. We believe by focusing on nine key initiatives, Minnesota's 875,000 pubic school students will benefit.
  1. Reform school finance system for more adequate, stable and equitable funding.
  2. Improve equalization of all school levies with significant statewide impact.
  3. Make facilities funding equitable.
  4. Maintain local decision-making authority and flexibility.
  5. Improve staff recruitment and retention.
  6. Redesign schools to promote individualized learning.
  7. Provide expanded learning time and opportunities.
  8. Ensure supports for social and emotional learning.
  9. Close the digital divide.

We encourage you to engage with the legislators who represent your school district, to share your priorities as well as your district's COVID-19 story.
