Calling all Advocates!

Recently the co-chairs of the Ways and Means Committee, the legislative budget writing committee, released a proposed budget that puts our kids at risk. The proposal includes a significant cut to the state SBHC budget of $2-$3 million. This means school-based health centers are in danger of losing significant and necessary funding. 

Addressing Chronic Absenteeism -- Trauma-Informed School Pilots (HB 4002)

Support Reducing Absenteeism in Schools by Contacting Your Legislator Today

We are thrilled that HB 4031 "The Coordinated Student Success Act" has unanimously passed out of the House Education Committee, but we still have work to do! Right now, our bill is sitting in Ways and Means where legislators decide which bills get funded. Legislators are more likely to act on our bill if they get enough requests to do so. We want their mailboxes to be full and their phones to ring off the hook because of advocates for youth like you.
