Fall 2014 Membership Drive
It's not too late to join MQEC for the 2014-2015 school year. 78 school districts and educational organizations support our efforts this year to maintain and enhance public school funding. With the upcoming legislative session just around the corner, a unified voice from the education community is critically important. Dianne Burke, MQEC Executive Director, has been traveling across the state this fall explaining MQEC's mission and accomplishments. If you missed her presentation at your local fall MASS meetings, please contact Dianne Burke for information. As schedules permit, she is happy to attend district board meetings to explain the benefits of MQEC membership.

2015 Legislative Session Priorities
As we prepare for the 2015 Legislative Session, MQEC has identified 6 focal areas:
  • Full implementation of SB 175
  • Defeat Privatization Efforts
  • Governor Bullock's Early Edge Program
  • Maintain Accreditation Standards and Local District Control
  • Increase Facilities Maintenance, Construction, and Bond Interest Funding
  • Legislative Review of the Public Education Funding Formula (MCA   20-9-309) in the 2015-2016 interim session.
