Blue Ridge ISD Trustees Sign Resolution for Legislative Session

The Blue Ridge ISD School Board approved a resolution (CLICK HERE) outlining their top legislative priorities entering the 2017 Texas Legislative Session. The passing of this measure is the latest in a collective effort by the superintendents and school boards of Region 10 to communicate the top areas of interest that stand to impact the 812,000 students they collectively serve.

The priorities include the following:
  •  A call to repeal any A-F campus and district grading system
  • Opposition to vouchers or Education Savings Grants and 
  • An increase of funding for Texas’ public schools. 

The approved resolution was mailed to the Texas Governor’s Office and local senators and representatives on Tuesday.  “Blue Ridge ISD is proud to stand with all Region 10 school districts in this effort to communicate the needs of its district, the students in Region 10, and all schools in the state of Texas,” said John Wink, Blue Ridge ISD Superintendent. "We ask that all supporters of Texas public schools become informed about this session's legislation that will impact 5.2 million Texas students and take time to contact their legislators to learn more about their position on supporting public education."
