Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD) Legislative Preview Conference

February 5, 2018

Representatives Tama Theis and Jim Knoblach joined school board Legislative Committee Chair Bruce Hentges at the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD) Legislative Preview Conference in St. Paul on Friday, February 2. They were among dozens of legislators from around the Metro area that heard about concerns that school districts like St. Cloud would like to have addressed in the upcoming legislative session. At the top of the legislative list is the special education cross-subsidy, which costs District 742 over $11 million annually. Representative Theis is on the House Education Finance Committee and Representative Knoblach chairs the House Ways and Means committee. We greatly appreciate that our local legislators took time from their busy schedules to attend this event!
