The purpose of the SWSA legislative agenda is to proactively influence public policy related to education through coordinated legislative advocacy efforts for the benefit of students, families, and communities. The SWSA is committed not only to the 200,000 students we educate in our public schools, but also the 860,000 traditional public school students served across the state. Our 2019-2021 Legislative Priorities are founded in our mission, core beliefs, and our vision of public education in Wisconsin.
The SWSA believes that legislative advocacy should be supported by sound and credible research and supports this through our partnership with Hanover Research, the Wisconsin Policy Forum, and the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Southeastern Wisconsin Schools Alliance is guided by six core beliefs.
2019-2021 Legislative Priorities:
The SWSA membership has drafted and refined their legislative framework for the 2019-2021 legislative session. The legislative framework was developed through multiple conversations with the membership and an evaluation of strategic priorities to benefit all students.
