TASA Legislative & Public Policy Services
Legislative advocacy on behalf of Texas schoolchildren is one of the most important benefits of TASA membership. Our Governmental Relations team helps us maintain the visibility and respect needed to effectively advocate for public schools. They work directly with legislators and other state leaders as well as alongside other education associations to both advance our priorities and defend against legislation that would negatively impact public schools and students. These efforts require significant time, energy, and resources — beyond that funded by regular membership dues.
Your Support Helps Us Be More Effective Advocates for Public Schools
Your district’s subscription to TASA’s Legislative and Public Policy Services allows TASA to dedicate the resources needed to monitor and influence legislative and public policy matters on behalf of your district.
Retain experts in the field of public school finance and TRS-related matters. These experts provide analysis and technical assistance, and prepare formal responses to plans under consideration by the Legislature.
Provide research to support legislation that aligns with our TASA Legislative Priorities or to counter inaccurate or misleading claims by those who seek to defund and dismantle Texas public education.
Compile talking points on critical public education issues to equip school leaders for when they speak with their legislators, the media, or within their communities.
Subscription fees are based on student enrollment.
