2019-2020 ED-RED Ad Hoc Committees

Practitioner Legislative Action Team (PLAT)

The PLAT Ad Hoc Committee consists of ED-RED administrators and school board members who serve as a “go-to” for last-minute legislative issues.  Membership includes school board members, school business officials, superintendents, and curriculum directors who work to inform the ED-RED team of the potential impact of legislation that is moving quickly. 


The Mandates Ad Hoc Committee is focusing on the toll that unfunded mandates are having on suburban school districts.  The goal of this ad hoc committee is to use a different strategy then past efforts to remove various outdated and unfunded mandates.  


The Finance Ad Hoc Committee is focused on legislative issues related to school finance.  Issues included but not limited to property taxes, Tax Increment Finance (TIF) law, and the evidence-based funding formula.  

Approved Guiding Principles for each of the Ad Hoc Committees coming soon!
