Keep pressing legislators for a 3 percent increase on education funding formula

MSBA members, with three weeks left in the 2015 legislative session, there is still time to make a difference!

Please continue to contact legislators and ask them to support a 3 percent increase on the basic education funding formula for BOTH years of the upcoming biennium (fiscal years 2016 and 2017).

Tell legislators your school district’s story. Tell them the negative impact an inadequate funding increase will have on your schools (budget cuts, teacher layoffs, etc.).

Please visit http://www.mnmsba.org/StandUpForPublicSchools-Funding to see how you can help!
