Government Relations is Alive in Our Locals
Going forward, ISTA will be adding a new feature to our ISTA newsletter from government relations sharing public policy and advocacy activities occurring in locals around the state organized by you and your colleagues. Working in public schools involves connecting with the public.
Sometimes those connections involve supporting or opposing policies and sometimes those connections are linked to political advocacy. Regardless of the nature of the activity, we believe it is important for you to know not only what is going on in your own local but also in other parts of the state. We all benefit by sharing these ideas and this important work.
Content for these stories primarily will be coming from your Legislative Action Teams (LATs) or Local Political Action Committees (LPACs). Please stay tuned. This week, the government relations team will share photos from its most recent advocacy initiatives.
