2014 Proposed Bylaw Changes

The ISBA Resolution and Bylaw voting structure is based on student population broken into eight (8) strata. The eight strata were created in 2003 and the student population breakdowns have not changed since then.

K-12 Education System Interim Committee Update

During its all-day meeting on Thursday, September 12th, the Legislature's K-12 Educational System Interim Committee invited representatives of three key stakeholder groups - the state’s school boards association, school administrators association and teachers union - to share what they see as the most pressing challenges and needs. All said funding, in the wake of steep budget cuts since 2009. The state budget now allocates only $20,000 per classroom for operational costs; in 2009, it was $25,696. Schools have lost $82.5 million a year in state funding.

2014 Proposed Resolutions

The Proposed Resolutions for the 2014 legislative session are now available here. The ISBA Executive Board has met and reviewed the Resolutions. The Board’s recommendation can be found at the bottom of each Resolution along with the name(s) of the submitting district(s). The Board respectfully requests that trustees meet to discuss these Resolutions and decide how each district will vote prior to the Business Session of the Annual Convention in November. To ensure that your district’s voice is heard on the Resolutions each district will need to have at least one trustee attend the Business Session.
