West Fork Board of Education picks legislative priorities

The West Fork Board of Education selected the legislative priorities for the school district over the 2017-18 school year during their meeting on July 24.

Every year, school districts throughout Iowa are asked to select four legislative priorities from a list of options provided by the Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB). Those priorities are then submitted to the IASB to help guide the organization’s legislative and grassroots advocacy efforts.
