MoASSP Priorities

SCHOOL FUNDING: Ensuring adequate and equitable funding for Missouri’s public schools is paramount, enabling us to meet state and federal program requirements and support the growth of our educators, benefiting students, communities, and the state.

SCHOOL GOVERNANCE: Missouri’s educational goals thrive in a system where elected community representatives have the authority to shape teaching and learning policies.

SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS: We recognize that educating students is a shared journey where schools, communities, and families come together to build and strengthen meaningful relationships.
