It is critical that legislators hear from their school districts during this time leading up to the legislative session. The base bills for the budget are being drafted and legislators are getting up to speed on the issues that are of the most importance to the constituents in their respective districts. Please find the time this month to reach out to your elected representatives in the Texas House and Senate, whether through a personal visit, a phone call, or a letter. You can use the sample letter accessible at the link below as a suggested framework for how to present information about your district in letter form or as a script for a phone call or meeting. You might also want to check the spreadsheet regarding the amount of Additional State Aid for Tax Reduction (ASATR) your district stands to lose if further cuts are made this session.
