Yesterday PSBA released a Special Legislative Report announcing a new advocacy effort designed to relieve school districts from the effects of state-imposed unfunded and underfunded mandates and provide the flexibility needed to weather the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Campaign to Support Public Schools was developed through member recommendations and includes 13 proposals addressing cost savings, planning and budget issues of concern to our members. See PSBA’s mandate relief web page that includes the campaign details and also includes our updated mandate report.
In conjunction with the advocacy campaign, PSBA is asking school boards to adopt the new resolution urging the General Assembly to provide critical support and mandate relief benefitting public schools and students. Send your adopted resolution to your legislators and to PSBA. The resolution is posted on PSBA’s Mandate Relief website page and can be downloaded and submitted to PSBA online.
