AASA is your advocate, with the resources you need to support all of your initiatives.
UPDATED FEBRUARY 5: This blog post includes an updated sequestration invoice.
AASA created this toolkit in tandem with our recent Economic Impact report, Federal Public Education Revenues and the Sequester, to help school districts and education stakeholders raise awareness about the true local impacts of the looming cuts of the fiscal cliff and sequester.
URGENT Call to Action: With fiscal cliff negotiations ongoing, it is more important than ever raise awareness of the impact of the sequester on education. Given the extremely local nature of this data, AASA was able to create a ready-to-use Opinion/Editorial (Op/Ed) letter, Letter to the Editor, letters for communicating with Congress, and an invoice and draft letter to quantify and qualify the impact of the sequester on your district.
Please take advantage of these resources. We ask AASA members to work with local media outlets and sources to get this word out!
Data and Maps: The following excel spreadsheets detail (one state per page, 10 pages per file) the share of federal, state and local dollars for every school district in the nation. You can look up your district to see the role of federal dollars in your operating budget. Each file contains LEA data for the state abbreviations in the title.
