Legislative Priorities

  • The DCA will continue to defend and support the District-Charter Partnership Law (SB 1882), including the maintenance of the academic and financial incentives associated with the law.
  • The DCA supports comprehensive school finance reform that equally benefits traditional district and charter students and integrates an outcomes-based funding strategy that supports early literacy, and college, career and military readiness.  Such reform must allow for flexibility and innovation for districts and charters to reach the outcomes.  We seek new revenue to support the reform.
  • The DCA supports strategic teacher incentive pay proposals that allow a state-developed or rigorous locally-developed compensation and evaluation systems to be eligible for funding incentives for excelling teachers.
