Kirwan Commission & Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Funding

The Kirwan Commission effort resulted in the following recommendations, that for the most part are included in HB1415.  I consider all of the following critical to accomplishing real equity and to ensuring that students are life ready. 

The reality:  We cannot fund all of the programs under our existing MOE calculation. 
My position: If elected, I will work with our County, State and community to advance plans addressing the need for State and grant provided fund multipliers.
