Summer Leadership Institute Will Feature Budget Update

The WASB Summer Leadership Institute is this Friday & Saturday (July 14-15) in Green Bay. The event will kick off with a networking dinner and inspiring keynote speaker and former Packer George E. Koonce, Jr. on Friday evening.  Saturday will feature three tracks of programming focusing on:
–the fundamentals of board governance for members in their first term of office;
–advanced board governance for more experienced members; and
–a mix of popular topics featuring engagement at each level – with fellow board members, students, staff and the community.

At the conclusion of the event, all tracks will conclude with a legislative/budget update from Government Relations Director Dan Rossmiller.  Dan will share details of what Capitol sources indicate the Senate and Assembly have agreed on (as well as predictions on what they are likely to agree on) and will be included in the Joint Finance Committee K-12 budget.  Will the Governor’s proposed per pupil aid increases survive intact?  What about help for low-spending districts?  Sparsity aid?  Voucher expansion?  Attend the legislative/budget update session at 2:30 p.m. to find out.

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend in Green Bay!
