SCHOOL FACILITIES FINANCING WORK GROUP - MASMS Representatives
Heather Nosan, Kevin Hildebrandt and Joe Arthurs have been selected to serve on a new legislatively created MDE advisory committee for school facility finance reform. As you can imagine the task is a great deal to take in, digest, and understand completely to begin to suggest reform from the long standing norms. Each of these individuals are working hard to suggest meaningful change that is sustainable and equitable for all sized districts in MN. These changes or recommendations to the legislative body may challenge the norm on educational finance structure currently in place, thinking much differently in the future. As MASMS representatives, they encourage having your voice be heard to these committee members too. To truly become effective reform, the process must represent all players. Please direct your comments to these individuals that will be working hard to suggest or recommend effective changes at the state level regarding a new facility funding models that will serve public education long into the future.
