Winter Regional Meeting Wrap

  • Print

February 9, 2012 We had some great opportunities to get updates on the new legislative session and the Governor's proposed budget. There is good news and bad news... The good news is that the proposal has the possibility of creating equitable funding for charters in the future! The bad news is it is based on proposed new taxes being passed by the voters, and if the taxes don't pass, we are looking at mid-year cuts again.

In addition to updates, we had lots of information and good discussion around the budget as two of our charter leaders presented their budget solutions and ideas. Charter leaders also presented on facilities solutions as well as shared some academic interventions. It was a great opportunity for information gathering, sharing and networking. If you missed this round we will have another set of local regional meetings in late May, so stay tuned for more info.
