2015 Legislative Agenda Adopted

 Permanent link   All Posts

Today, the AASA Governing Board came together and adopted AASA's 2015 Legislative Agenda. This serves as a guide for our lobbying for the year so we can best represent the interests of our members. Not much has changed from last year's legislative agenda. Our legislative priorities for this year are to reauthorize ESEA, fully fund IDEA, and limit federal intrusion into state and local education policies. 

We added a piece on the Higher Education Act regarding teacher preparation programs and a piece on student data privacy, urging Congress to clarify definitions and provide guidance on the scope of different privacy laws (FERPA, PPRA, COPPA). 

We also made a trifold version, which is a great advocacy tool to leave behind with your representatives, so they are aware of our main priorities.
