Here’s the scoop for the week…

Call to action will be coming...

I will be sending a “Call to Action” email regarding the need to contact your legislators about the basic funding formula.  I am not ready to say when that is as the work of the legislature is progressing and the timing of our advocacy is important. Key legislators will need to hear from members of all MASA component groups across the state. 

*The House Omnibus Bill has an increase of 2% for each year of the biennium. The Senate Omnibus Bill has zero for both years.  Each omnibus bill has various pots of money for other areas-many of which we support and are grateful to see included.  That said, as we know money on the formula is essential so we will need all hands on deck to let our representatives know our position on the formula.*

Reading and TedTalk on addressing racism:

One of our members has shared the following link and information about Dena Simmons who recently left Yale’s Center for Emotional Intelligence to start her own non-profit. She is a brilliant scholar and a very good writer. She also has an impressive TedTalk.

Are you interested in becoming one of the two MASA representatives on the MSHSL BOARD?

Letters of interest for the two MASA representative openings on the MSHSL Board of Directors are due by the end of the day, Friday, April 16, 2021.  Please address your letters to the MASA Board of Directors and Executive Director.

Have you voted for MASA Executive Officers and Representatives for the Board of Directors?

There have been a number of reminders to vote sent to you by Dave Christians and I am happy to report that voter turnout is higher than it has been for years-thank you!  If you have not voted, please continue to do so as some of the races are oh so close! Check to see if you are eligible to vote here.

Leadership Matters: 

Danny Steele (@SteeleThoughts) Tweeted:

Every school has essentially the same mission: “Preparing kids for their future… “ What matters, though, is not the quality of words in the frame, but the quality of relationships in the building.
