As the new legislative session begins in January, it is important to be apprised of statewide and regional Legislator’s current perception of Public Education. School leaders need to build a relationship with legislators and find ways to communicate even when there may be some disagreement.
One of southwest Missouri’s strongest Public Education advocates is State Senator Karla Eslinger. She will share some examples for how school leaders can best communicate with state policymakers. She will share insight for what she believes will be the focus for the legislative session.
Jason Dial, a founding member of GOCSD and current Missouri Association for School Administrator’s Public Education Lobbyist, will share some of legislative bills that have been pre-filed and the potential impact of these on public education.
Marci Orr, MASA Communications Director, will discuss various ways to connect and build relationships with legislators.
