Each fall, KSBA staff and board officers hit the road and travel to each of our twelve regions. Regional chairs and their respective districs host and evening of training and networking. Following a opening remarks and a dinner program, attendees participate in a training session on a pertinent topic. Often regional meetings are prefaced by bonus sessions, allowing KSBA members to earn more training hours while on site for the meeting.
2019 Regional Meetings Recap:
Topic: What Will the Session Bring? Legislative Issues, the State Budget and your District Management
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.
