Here’s the scoop for the week

Parent Rights:

A number of bills have been introduced regarding the rights of parents who have children in Minnesota’s public schools. MASA joined MSBA and AMSD in sending a letter to the Senate Education Finance and Policy Committee affirming our desire to engage parents in our public schools. Included in the communication to the committee was a compilation of MSBA Model Policies and MN statutes already requiring parent involvement. 

Expect the discussion on parent rights to be present during this legislative session. You might want to think about all the ways you involve parents and share that information when you meet with senators and representatives during your Days at the Capitol, or during other events when you come in contact with legislators.
