Dear MSPA members,
Below please find a press release from the office of Sen. Chuck Wiger, Chairman of the E-12 Finance committee. Our Lobbyist, Brad Lundell and Marilyn Leifgren were present to hear and respond to questions regarding Senator Kent’s (DFL-Woodbury) proposed legislation regarding expansion of Student Support Services Personnel. Student Services Personnel in this bill includes School Social Workers, School Psychologists, and School Nurses, School Counselors, and Chemical Health workers. Sally Baas was representing us at the IDEA Partnership in Washington, D.C. while still staying in contact with this event.
As this bill goes forward, your consideration, input, and participation will be vitally important. As Legislative Co-Chairs, we encourage and welcome your thoughts and input. Further information is provided on the MSPA website, and will be forthcoming.
Dr. Sally A. Baas firstname.lastname@example.org
