Texas Association of School Boards - TASB Winter Meeting - January 15, 2011
The meeting of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) and the Legislative Advisory Council (LAC) last week-end covered a full agenda and welcomed three new TASB members. The seven standing committees tackled issues ranging from planning and development to by-laws and resolutions.
There was one very clear concern -- decisions that the imminent Texas legislative session will make about funding for public education.
TASB Directors are asking school districts across the state to pass the “Make Education a Priority” resolution during January.
On January 31st, during the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) Mid-Winter conference in Austin, superintendents and board members will gather for a press conference to publicize the urgency of our united message.
Help protect funding for our public schools. School boards are requested to adopt the “Make Education a Priority” resolution by the end of this month in order to urge your legislators to do the same during the 82nd legislative session.
As of today, 473 school districts have adopted the "Make Education a Priority" resolution.
The resolution and the list of districts that have already passed the resolution are available at the “Make Education a Priority” website :
