Sample school board resolution - Governor Snyder's Education Plan

We, the members of the ________________ School Board, believe in delivering a quality education for our children. We hire qualified staff and provide the necessary resources for them to do their job.

The continued cuts to education funding each year make accomplishing our goals difficult. And for this year, the governor’s proposed $800 million cut to education will place us in a financial crisis.

As a school district, we have implemented cost-cutting measures which have impacted staff, students and programs. There is nothing left to cut.

Therefore, be it resolved, we, the members of the _____________ School Board, stand together in opposition to the proposed cuts to K-12 school funding.

These drastic cuts will prevent us from providing the kind of education students need to succeed and move this state forward.
