KNEA Representative Assembly-Deadline Nov. 16th

Some 500 locally elected delegates come to Topeka for the annual KNEA Representative Assembly that sets policy and guidelines for the association throughout the year.

The delegates address a myriad of issues that impact Kansas public schools by considering new business items, which involve actions on the part of KNEA, and resolutions, which are statements of belief.

For the past few years KNEA RA delegates also participate in "critical issues" discussions on current issues, such as school funding, economic Development, teacher evaluation, school improvement, testing and advocating for Kansas public schools and the teaching profession.

The 2016 KNEA RA will be held April 9-10, 2016, in Topeka.

Information requested by delegates is available here. Click here if you have questions about the KNEA RA.
