Regional Meeting Training:
What Will the Session Bring? Legislative Issues, the State Budget and your
The 2020 Regular Session of the General Assembly will see many proposals that impact student learning and your district operations and, most importantly, will adjourn with a new two-year state budget. During this year’s regional meetings, you will have the opportunity to review the results of the KSBA member legislative survey of priorities and discuss the issues that will be at the forefront this year, including school safety implementation, charter school funding and authorization, tax reforms, district mergers and more. We will also review the state budget process, analyzing the SEEK formula and the budget framework so you can better understand the evolving numbers we will report as the process plays out from the House and Senate to the Governor’s desk.
Note: At most regional meetings, additional sessions may be available prior to the start of the main dinner program. Information on these sessions will be made available soon. Check back regularly for details.
