News from our State Coordinator: Erik Bose
8/20/2015 from the
National NASSP Advocacy Office:
I hope this message finds you well.
I wanted to let all of you know that we have posted a new Action Alert on the Principals Legislative Action Center (PLAC) regarding NASSP’s ESEA reauthorization priorities for conference
committee. In coordination with NAESP, we will be sending out a message to all of our members encouraging them to contact
their legislators. We wanted to give all of you the heads up before this message goes out so you can encourage widespread
participation throughout your state. With a long list of legislative work slated for the Fall, now is the time to get our
message across to Capitol Hill to ensure that principals views are taken into consideration as the ESEA reauthorization process
moves forward .
For the July Action Alert regarding the Every Child Achieves Act (S. 1177),
we had 222 people send a total of 460 messages. While this was an encouraging result considering the short turnaround and
the fact that many principals were on summer vacation, our goal for this Action Alert is to have more than 1,000 people send
messages. We thank you in advance for your support of this goal.
