Our legislative update from our state senators was a success so we are doing it again with our state House members, Rep. Stephanie Clayton and Rep. Jan Kessinger, on January 8 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. A new session will be starting in Topeka the following week so there will be a lot to discuss when it comes to funding schools, taking care of our awesome teachers, school safety and more. You'll want to hear how our new governor and changes in the legislature, including the loss of a number of moderates in Johnson County, will affect the agenda. Mark your calendars and plan to come out! Child care is provided (as always). See you there!
This year's election is over and we saw extremely high turnout in area. Well done! Here are some of the most education-relevant results for the Trailwood area.
US Representative - Sharice Davids
KS Governor - Laura Kelly
State Representative - Stephanie Clayton (generally north of 99th St) and Jan Kessinger (generally south of 99th St)
Johnson County Chair - Ed Eilert
Johnson County Commission - Janee Hanzlick (Overland Park families) and Becky Fast (Prairie Village families)
Here are two articles that show how the election results could impact our school in the coming months and years:
- Gov.-Elect Laura Kellywants to increase state aid for public school districts by $70 to $100 million.
- Kansas’ next governor says job protections for teachers should be restored statewide
