First...a resolution for citizens
In early 2011, we developed a resolution for individuals and groups to communicate with the governor and state legislators about the need to change the funding formula.
THEN...resolutions for school boards
After Governor Walker released his budget on February 3, 2015, and it became clear that equitably and adequately funding public schools were not of interest to Governor Walker, school districts began passing resolutions and writing letters asking for modest revenue limit increases and opposing the proposed voucher expansion. We saw the start of this again in 2017 with the new budget cycle. Visit the Wisconsin Association of School Boards webpage "Boards Taking Action" for a comprehensive list of actions taken by school boards throughout Wisconsin.
Now...advocating with others
In early 2013, we began partnering with other organizations throughout the state in a network we have come to call the 'Wisconsin Public Education Network'. Together we are working on developing strategies and messaging that we can use throughout the state to support our public schools and communities.
