Current episode show notes:
Wisconsin lawmakers are creating the next two-year budget. It will have a major impact on the opportunities school districts can offer their students.
This month, we hear from the WASB government relations team — Dan Rossmiller and Chris Kulow — about what’s happening in Madison and how education leaders can contribute to the conversation.
We’ll start by getting you caught up on the budget essentials so you can have informed discussions with decision makers.
We’ll also talk about our Day at the Capitol. Held March 22, it’s a chance for school board members and administrators around Wisconsin to meet with their legislators in Madison. We make it easy by organizing meetings with your local lawmaker.
