Biggest Issue: Fixing the System

AMSD 2012 Legislative Platform:

  • Remove barriers to collaboration

  • Establish a digital learning division within MDE

  • Provide funding for early education and fully funding all day kindergarten

  • Ensure laws promote retention of most effective teachers

  • Allow more flexibility for school districts to levy for needs based on unfunded mandates, ensuring safe learning environments and renewing existing operating levy authority like other units of local government

  • Permitting more local control for school boards to make better decisions around resources in regards to calendar, staff development resources and other funding sources

Change is on the way:

  • Teacher appraisal system

  • Local business partnerships

  • Reprioritizing for the 21st century
