This is the fifth year that public school districts in Cass County have come together as "Cass County Kids First" to share concerns and endorse a list of legislative priorities. Members of Cass County Kids First met with legislators for breakfast today (June 7) at the Archie School District.
Legislators talked with school officials about the 2019 session and topics including early childhood education and funding, school calendars, charter schools, and vouchers.
Rep. Rodger Reedy, R-57 and Rep. Donna Pfautsch, R-33, attended the event. Reedy shared some of his experiences as a freshman representative. Archie School Superintendent Jeff Kramer welcomed the group, and Ruth Johnson, Ray-Pec School Board President, moderated the event.
Cass County Kids First includes Board of Education members and administrators from all of the county's public school districts. The group plans to reconvene next year.
