KASB Delegate Assembly approves 2020 advocacy policiesScott Rothschild
From protecting students to retaining high quality educators, the policies and priorities of Kansas school boards were recently approved by the KASB Delegate Assembly.
The 10-page report will guide KASB advocacy efforts during the 2020 Kansas legislative session and on federal actions affecting education. Here is a link to the document.
The report supports increased efforts to attract and retain qualified educators, boost opportunities for students to succeed and ensure the health and safety of students. It includes language on several high–profile issues, such as educating immigrant students, fighting the vaping epidemic and reducing bullying.
On the issue of school finance, KASB will oppose any changes that would limit adequate and equitable funding.
The report was put together by KASB’s Legislative Committee, which met several times this year.
