School board members: Legislators need to hear from YOU regarding education funding

Please contact your local legislators in the House and Senate — and urge them to raise their funding targets for public education.

Ask them to add a 3 percent increase on the general education funding formula — for BOTH years of the upcoming biennium.

Tell them your school district’s story. Tell them what will happen to your budget if the Legislature only gives schools only a 1 percent increase (or worse) over the  next biennium.

Please visit http://www.mnmsba.org/StandUpForPublicSchools-Funding for more information and to access resources.

Your voice matters! Please use it to help give your students better opportunities!
