A key component of the Education Alliance’s mission is to foster dialogue between leaders and stakeholders on public policy issues effecting public education (see 2019 Education Policy Priorities). The Education Alliance believes that public education is strongest when input from all stakeholders is valued and partners feel welcomed into the process. Our students and our state deserve an active and engaged public. To support this goal, the Alliance provides weekly updates each Friday throughout the 2019 Legislative Session (click here to subscribe).
The 2019 Legislative Session is off and running with both the House and Senate Education Committees holding meetings this week. To date, more than 80 education-related bills have been introduced. For a listing of those bills, click here.
Bills of note:
S.B. 1: Increasing access to career education and workforce training
H.B. 2415: Requiring the State Board of Education to adopt a policy detailing the appropriate level of computer science instruction.
*Note: Early in the session, the bill tracking spreadsheet will include all bills referenced to the Education Committees. However, as the session progresses, the tracking will shift to only tracking specific bills that are moving through the legislative process and are of particular interest to The Alliance and our stakeholders. We will continue to follow these initiatives and priorities and will provide updates as they move through the legislative process.
If you note the absence of a bill that should be tracked, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
