CINS 2019 Legislative Update

Grady High School Media Center | February 26 While most APS families are enjoying Winter Break this week, our state legislators have been hard at work. Please join us next Tuesday, Feb. 26, for an update on proposed legislation addressing a range of education issues, including school safety, recess for K-5, cybersecurity instruction, financial management for local school systems, support for students with dyslexia, freedom of religious speech for students and faculty, and the duties of the chief turnaround officer.

We're excited to welcome back State Representative Scott Holcomb, State Senator Nan Orrock and State Senator Elena Parent, and look forward to hearing from two new guests, Stephen Owens (Georgia Budget and Policy Institute) and Erica Long (Atlanta Public Schools).
