Educators voiced their concerns and spoke with lawmakers about their priorities and what they’d like to see in the upcoming year. Everything from education funding to policy initiatives was discussed at the Forum.

Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman said it’s important to sit down face-to-face with our lawmakers.

“They’ve got so many things going on. So many people that want their attention. This is an opportunity to take about an hour and just really focus on education and the issues affecting education and students. So, we’re thankful to our legislators for participating,” said Dr. Paul Gausman.
