Consistent Involvement in the Legislative Process is Crucial
With the end of the
2022-2023 school year quickly approaching and the start of 2023 Florida
Legislature , the demands on your time will greatly increase. Legislative committee
meetings began well before the end of 2022 and are now in full swing.
that point, FADSS and Florida superintendents will once again be called
upon as the legislative process moves forward. Your continued support
and involvement are crucial to ensure that legislators and their staff
have a clear understanding of the issues and challenges facing Florida
public schools, and the impact that proposed legislative decisions will
have at the local level.
AEO David Sikes and General Counsel Brian Moore, working in conjunction
with our consultants from Capital City Consulting – Ron LaFace and
Megan Fay, are aggressively monitoring legislative committee meetings on
a daily basis, as well as responding to legislative staff requests for
substantive input regarding K12 legislation.
Additionally, I strongly encourage
each of you to continue to have as a priority your efforts to stay in
contact with your local delegation and keep them apprised of your local
challenges – and just as important – your successes.
Yours in Education,
