By John Forester | May 30, 2018

The Blue Ribbon Commission on School Funding will hold an informational hearing at 9:00 a.m. followed by a public hearing at 1:00 p.m. or immediately following the conclusion of the informational hearing on Monday, June 4th in Room 412 East, State Capitol.  This is the last of eight public hearings the Commission has scheduled.

During the informational hearing, the Blue Ribbon Commission will hear testimony from invited speakers, including representatives of the following organizations: University of Wisconsin-Madison, Wisconsin School Administrators Alliance, Education Commission of the States, and EdBuild. Following the informational hearing, members of the public are invited to testify and share their thoughts on school funding with the commission at the public hearing. To ensure the commission hears from all members of the public that would like to testify, public testimony will be limited to 5 minutes or less per speaker at the discretion of the co-chairs. The hearing will conclude at 5:00 p.m.

As a reminder, here are the SAA’s discussion points for the Blue Ribbon Commission.  The SAA’s testimony before the Commission will be based on these discussion points.  The SAA encourages members to use this information as well as examples from your district and your own expertise, in developing your communications to the Commission.

Stay tuned.  The SAA will keep members informed of Commission developments.
