Your calls and emails have been working – House Bill 4163 to prohibit school calendar and schedule as a subject of bargaining has been slowed in its movement through the House.
Thousands of calls and emails have flooded lawmakers who want to remove educator voices from important decision-making. The bargaining prohibition could keep frontline experts from discussing holiday breaks, parent-teacher conferences, teacher prep time, bus route scheduling, professional development scheduling, and more.
Keep it up – contact your state representatives, and get parents and other interested community members involved in the fight. Tell legislators not to silence educators. We know what our communities need in terms of school calendar and schedule.
