In March, 2016, a delegation from Iowa visited Washington, DC, to visit with our congressional representatives. This was a part of National PTA's Legislative Conference where PTA members from every state made visits on the same day. Our mission was to gain support of, and funding for Statewide Family Engagement Centers (SFECs) that are mandated in the newly enacted Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) formerly known as No Child Left Behind.
Make sure you attend events in Iowa and ask the Presidential candidates what they are going to do to increase family engagement in the schools, or how are they going to make sure each child has access to a quality education?
Your vote matters!
