During the Missouri Legislative Session, the Missouri School Administrators Coalition provides an update on legislative bills and issues related to public education.

As the bedrock of strong local communities, public schools continue to serve our students’ educational and emotional well-being. Public schools have risen to the many challenges presented by the pandemic. School leaders were able to accomplish this by communicating, responding and meeting the expectations of their communities. This was only possible due to Missouri’s strong support of local control. It is as critical as ever to support and fund public schools’ ability to educate our children to ensure the future success of our state.
