On Wednesday, January 9, Superintendent Mike Scott and the Board of Directors held a briefing with local elected officials on the Board’s priorities for the 2013 Legislative session.

In attendance were Senator Bruce Starr, Representative Ben Unger, Representative Joe Gallegos, Representative Jeff Barker, Hillsboro City Council President Aron Carleson, Washington County Commission President Andy Duyck, Washington County Commissioner Greg Malinowski, Field Representative John Valley (U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley), and Field Representative Ryan Mann (U.S. Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici), along with several staff, Board, and Budget Committee members.

Superintendent Scott kicked off the meeting by discussing the Hillsboro School District budget situation and projections for the 2013-15 biennium based on Governor Kitzhaber’s proposed allocation to K-12 education.  He then shared the Board’s 2013 Legislative Priorities (to see the full Legislative Priorities brochure, click here or visit the Budget Matters webpage):

  • Support stable and adequate funding for education.
  • Support PERS reforms that are deemed constitutional, lead to long-term stability of the system, and value current, former, and future public employees.
  • Oppose or modify laws, mandates, or reporting requirements that do not come with the corresponding funding for their implementation.
  • Revise legislation that places an undue or unreasonable burden on public schools.
  • Support education funding at the federal level that aligns with mandated program delivery.

Finally, a brief discussion ensued around effective advocacy efforts.  The elected officials in attendance agreed that the two most effective elements of advocacy are a common message, and personal stories from constituents.

The advocacy sub-committee, led by Communications Director Beth Graser, will be scheduling some information and training events in the coming weeks for parents, community members, and even staff who are interested in learning more and taking an active role in advocating for education in this legislative session.  Stay tuned to the website for more information, or feel free to contact Beth directly via e-mail or phone: 503-844-1772.
