Dear [Senator or Representative] ________________

Hello my name is ______________ and I am a [your position] and [local affiliate like JCTA] and KEA member living in your district. I’m writing to ask that you OPPOSE HB350. Vouchers or Scholarship Tax Credits don’t actually help low income students. Instead they take money desperately needed to provide services required of state government.  

Thank you for your service!

OPPOSE SB7 – The SBDM Bill (1/22/20)

Today is #WearRed4Ed and Call Legislators Wednesday! 

We are asking that you CALL or EMAIL your legislators to ask that they OPPOSE SB7 – The SBDM Bill. Use one of the following scripts below when you contact legislators. Find your legislators here.

Email:

Dear [Senator or Representative] ________________

Hello my name is ______________ and I am a [your position] and [local affiliate like JCTA] and KEA member living in your district. I’m writing to ask that you OPPOSE SB7. Local control is an important part of democracy and that begins with Site-Based Decision-Making councils in schools. Teachers need to be an integral voice on those councils and know that they can’t be forcibly transferred for participating on a school council.  

Thank you for your service!
