SBR: Get the facts on federal issues, candidatesAndrea Hartzell
As the countdown to the Nov. 6 general election continues, incumbent lawmakers and candidates will be looking for opportunities to showcase their support of K-12 public schools in Kansas.
KASB through the National School Boards Association (NSBA) recommends NSBA’s 2018 Summer Recess Guide as a good source of background material and talking points on federal legislation and policy, suggestions for in-district events to showcase your schools, sample questions for candidates, a grassroots engagement guide and other important Congressional information. Education advocates should use the Recess Guide throughout the Fall as midterm elections focus attention on federal support of Kansas K-12 public education.
You can find the guide online at Guide. Watch for KASB News Briefs, social media posts, videos and podcasts for more about federal advocacy for Kansas schools.
