Back to Say "NO" to Branstad's Zero School Budget Growth!

Urge legislators in the House to go to conference committee and set allowable growth at 2 percent.

The Iowa Legislature has missed the February 26 deadline to set allowable growth; it is now 26 days overdue. Iowa schools must certify budgets for next year by April 15; pink slips are due April 30. As a result of the delay in setting allowable growth, school boards are beginning to determine how many teachers they will lay off at the end of this school year.
