We will be advocating for full funding for Special Education and increased funding for support staff (nurses, counselors, social workers, etc.), in addition to the bills we supported but didn't pass last session. We will also be watching for bills tied to the State Charter School Commission's Legislative agenda of access to state level levy equalization funding (the current law doesn't allow them to run levies or access levy dollars from school districts and state level facilities support (the Superior Court and Supreme Court ruled that Charter School access to the School Construction Fund unconstitutional).
