Public School Advocacy

  • Public schools showcase the promise of communities. While public schools are largely funded through local taxes and governed by the School Board, the laws and regulations that impact public schools and education are made at the state and federal levels. To that end, it is imperative that elected officials hear from the Rose Tree Media community as they vote on matters that affect our district. Elected officials who impact our district include:
