There was an 8-hour hearing yesterday with the Joint Assembly Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committee. The Committee heard from the 17 county school superintendents on proposed funding for K12 education. Again, this recording is a primary source to build the foundation for analyzing the facts related to proposed K12 funding.
You can review the hearing here: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/82nd2023/Meeting/11865?p=1011865
Of course, we also need to keep in mind that school funding does not encompass all the behavioral health services needed to ensure children and their families have the tools to address issues that happen outside of the school. We must pair the two together.
