The Congressional August recess presents a unique opportunity for school board members across the country to meet locally and share with their members of Congress public education issues of great importance to their communities. This year, House members will recess from July 31 until September 7, while Senators won’t begin their recess until August 10 continuing through September 7.

During these periods when your federal lawmakers are home we hope that you will engage them in conversation from the local school board member’s perspective.

NSBA is providing you with key information for your meetings with members of Congress during the 2015 August congressional recess.

Key Information provides background and NSBA position information on the three most timely education topics on Capitol Hill, including:

  • Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA);
  • Fiscal Year 2016 Federal Funding for Public Education and Sequestration; and
  • Reauthorization of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (which authorizes the school lunch program).
