Applications now open for KASB Advanced Advocacy Training InstituteDebbie Dyche
Applications are now available online to become part of a select group of 18 education advocates from across Kansas who will be invited to take part in the inaugural KASB Advanced Advocacy Training Institute or AATI.
The KASB Advanced Advocacy Training Institute is a deep-dive, limited-group program focused on public education advocacy. Advocacy for education doesn’t just happen at the Statehouse in Topeka. It is a local issue, and each community needs champions – both within the public education system and outside of the system – who can effectively communicate the positive work that is being done and the need to continue efforts to develop new programs and approaches to improving student outcomes.
Over the course of six different in-person meetings as well as some advocacy work next spring, participants will accomplish the following objectives:
Establish a network of education advocates throughout Kansas who have a full understanding of issues on the local, state and federal levels.
Connect education advocates to establish networking and support opportunities and to share ideas and approaches to advocacy.
Explore education advocacy initiatives and analyze successes and failures in achieving goals and objectives to improve education in Kansas
Improve effectiveness of individual and organization advocacy activities.
Expand diversity of education advocates and support efforts to participate in the legislative and community outreach process.
