Direct participation in our democracy
We need to build our communities. We need to fully fund public schools. We need to hold our elected leaders accountable to the people. And we need your help to make it happen.
Here’s how you can get involved.

Lobbying Resources

Grassroots involvement of members in every corner of the state is the heart of the association’s lobbying strategy. Legislators want – and need – to hear how their actions impact children and education back home. You don’t have to be an expert on school finance, or anything else, but you are the expert on how legislation will affect your students and your school.

Vouchers Toolkit

Student First Scholarships are the wrong public policy for Iowa and an inappropriate use of public tax dollars. Student first scholarships are private school vouchers. Plain and simple. Unlike a true savings account, parents do not open the account and put in their own money. The proposal gives selected parents a taxpayer-funded debit card loaded with state taxpayer dollars to use however they wish. We agree that parents should have the choice to enroll their child in a private or religious school. But not with public taxpayer funds.

Elections

Elections matter. Support the candidates that support your work and the students you serve.
In these challenging times, it's important to stick together and strengthen our membership for our future.
