|We hope you will join us today for the School Boards Day at the Capitol. If you can't be in St. Paul, you can still participate.
This is the best time during the legislative session to share messages with your legislator.
There are a number of issues you can share with your legislators today during School Boards Day at the Capitol.
- 2 percent is a must on the basic education formula. With current targets, school districts will fall short immediately. Legislators need to understand what the impact is for your district.
- Teacher shortage is a statewide issue. The Teacher Shortage Act brought forth by MSBA has strong support of other education organizations.
- Special education still needs to be addressed. Districts are already starting from a weak point and can't continue to rob the general education fund to pay for increasing needs in special education.
- Tax credits versus education funding.
We encourage you to email your legislators today. Even if they are on the floor, they do read and respond to emails. You can also tweet or post on social media.
