Data disaggregation is under threat. There will be a hearing on a Senate bill that has been introduced to undo the data disaggregation law our community worked so hard to pass. OPPOSE SF 709.

WHAT: The proposed bill is SF 709 and will be heard in the E-12 Finance and Policy Committee

WHEN: Wednesday, March 27th from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm in Senate Building room 1100. Please arrive by 2:30 pm if possible.SF 709/HF 1639 would eliminate disaggregating education data by ethnicity, which is one of the key elements of the 2017 All Kids Count Act. If these bills pass, the rollout of data disaggregation by ethnicity would end.

We need your help to defend the All Kids Count Act and to stop the proposed bills so that schools, education leaders, policymakers, parents, and community advocates can have more meaningful information on what’s happening in our schools.

TAKE ACTION with us as we fight to ensure all kids count.

1) Please bring your community and family members to this important hearing. We want to pack the room and physically show who this bill impacts. Nothing about us, without us - Wednesday, March 27th 2:30 pm in Senate Building room 1100.

2) Please take 5 minutes to send an email to your legislators. Take action here today!

3) Learn more about data disaggregation and spread the word!
