Legislative Priorities

The Education Policy Committee meets immediately after the adjournment of the annual Assembly of Delegates to set the legislative priorities for the upcoming legislative session. 

MSTA’s government relations department lobbies for these priorities at the State Capitol. The legislative priorities for 2020 included full funding for education, as well as better pay and less paperwork for educators, and a safer environment. In addition, based on input from members, MSTA lobbyists pursued incorporating trauma-informed initiatives in the classroom, and professional development for trauma-informed initiatives.
