2021-2022 NCASA Legislative Priorities

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate communities across the state and nation, student safety and ongoing success have remained top concerns for families, educators, and public school leaders. The pandemic not only highlighted the resiliency of our educators in immediately adjusting to new ways of teaching, but also shed light on the inequities seen across the state in critical areas such as Internet access and student mental health support. School district leaders greatly appreciate the support provided in initial COVID response legislation in 2020 and now request additional action by legislators and policymakers to ensure our schools have the funds and flexibility needed to safely provide equitable learning opportunities for our students long-term, as our state moves toward recovery from the pandemic.
