ONLY 15 DAYS AWAY
OUR PANEL OF SCHOOL BOARD ATTORNEYS WILL DO JUSTICE to the nuances of ed law issues and collective bargaining. There's lots to know, so have your District Clerk sign you up. WPSBA's annual Ed Law Workshop (8am on March 22nd) always gets rave reviews.... don't miss it.
IT'S ADVOCACY CRUNCH TIME AND HERE'S THE 411
WE'RE NOT JUST DREAMING OF MORE STATE FUNDING FOR OUR SCHOOLS, we're working hard to make it happen. See the data, presentation materials, and advocacy tools given out at last week's Legislative Forum. There's lots of talking points you can use to explain the issues to your community (and the photos from the Forum are great).
THE ARTS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE ACROSS THE CURRICULUM
OFTEN CONSIDERED FOR POTENTIAL BUDGET CUTS, arts education actually plays an important role in how children learn. Incorporating the arts helps encourage creative thinking and active learning. Think: School House Rock.
It's budget time...
so our first completed weekly budget survey will hit your inbox in less than two weeks!
The Chalkboard staff will be on spring break next week,
so look for our next edition on March 21st.
