First, the good news!

SB 2021 has been passed by both the House and Senate and awaits the signature of the was signed by the Governor with all of our funding requests intact.  This bill contains the funding for the ETC, EduTech, Center for Distance Education, State Longitudinal Data System and the state network.  Once the session is over and the dust settles a bit, I will give you more detailed information on the impact to each of these over the next two years.

The disconcerting news is about HB 1319, which contains funding for the statewide implementation of PowerSchool.  As you have probably heard, it was killed this morning by the House and we are unsure at this time what is going to happen next. As the final hours of the session continue this afternoon/evening/early morning I will let you know more regarding this important issue to all K12 schools.
