FSBA’s Legislative Platform is the cornerstone for FSBA’s legislative and congressional advocacy efforts. In order to represent you appropriately in Tallahassee and Washington, we need to begin to develop our 2015 Legislative Platform now. To assist you in the platform development process, a new quick-link has been added to the FSBA website at www.fsba.org titled “FSBA 2015 Legislative Platform” — on the right hand side of the main page — that links to our State Government Relations page. Here, you will find several documents relating to FSBA’s platform development process, including the timeline for the development of the 2015 Legislative Platform.
The first step in the platform development process is to gather your proposals for legislative changes that would impact public education statewide. To streamline this process, we have posted an electronic platform proposal form that you may complete and submit online — simply click on “2015 Platform Proposal Form” or use this direct link: https://fsba.org/
This form may be completed and submitted by school board members, superintendents, or district staff members. However, a school board member must approve any NEW item that is submitted by anyone other than a school board member. The form must be completed and submitted by Friday, August 29, 2014.
We look forward to receiving your proposals – they are vital to our legislative success. If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Melton at 850-414-2578 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
