Attention School Funding Advocates! Your Voice is Needed

The New Student Opportunity Act (SOA) Means More Funding for Your Local Schools, But Your Voice is Needed Now on How It Should Be Spent.

The SOA is a major achievement, the result of years of advocacy to address vast inequities in state school funding. It will bring desperately needed funds to Massachusetts public schools, especially in districts serving students with the greatest needs. But it must be spent well by districts to achieve its goal: a quality education for every student.  

All districts must develop a three-year spending plan by APRIL 1, 2020, for funding beginning July 1. Districts must solicit and consider local public input. THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN!
