The approval followed a public hearing. The rate is calculated based on the assessed valuation of real estate and personal property in the District.

BOE DC trip Hartzler rotate web
During the event school board members met with Missouri’s congressional delegation and staff members to discuss federal education issues that have an impact on local school districts throughout Missouri. Board members discussed a variety of issues with lawmakers including the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act and the reauthorization of the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, the federal law that sets policy and establishes funding for vocational training programs at middle and high schools. 

In this picture, some board members meet with Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, who represents Missouri's 4th District.

The Missouri School Boards’ Association sponsors the annual trip to Washington, D.C. to provide Missouri school board members the opportunity to take an active role in advocating for issues important to Missouri’s public schools.
