Your voice is needed — speak up for Kentucky’s students, schools, and SBDM councils.

Active SBDM Bill

The first challenge is already here with Senate Bill 7; its proposals will diminish council impact in the Kentucky.  SB 7 takes decision-making out of the hands of those closest to the students and gives it to the superintendent and school board. This bill could be called in the Senate Education Committee as early as Thursday, January 23. SB 7 amends the SBDM law, KRS 160.345, and will impact schools and SBDM councils in multiple ways. Learn more about SB7.

KASC is keeping an eye on several other education bills, including HB41 Require Full Day Kindergarten and HB165 Required Non-teaching Time for Teachers. Continue on to our Legislative News page to learn what you can to do to have your voice heard and how you can follow the legislative coverage.
