Welcome to 2019! We hope your year is off to the right start and your Christmas season was full of good memories. If you’re looking for ways to make sure this year is the best one yet, make sure you’re following our Facebook page. We’re sharing a tip a day for success in the new year. Follow along with #31for365 and share your tips for winning the year.

Tomorrow we’ll be welcoming the 111th General Assembly. They’ll gavel in at noon, and we’ll be sure to share pictures on our social media feeds. With a new General Assembly comes new committees, new leadership, and new members. We look forward to sharing the good work happening in Tennessee’s classrooms with them all.

If you’re new to our legislative work, we wanted to take a minute and fill you in. Each week we’ll send out an email highlighting information you need, legislation that’s up for debate, or a vote that’s taking place in committee. From time to time, we’ll ask you to reach out to your elected officials and raise your voice for Tennessee’s kids.

Each session we host a Legislative Day on the Hill and invite you to come and join us for a day of speakers, committee hearings, and meetings. Mark your calendars for February 26th and make plans to join us!

We’re certain the first session of the 111th General Assembly will be a great opportunity to continue the work for every Tennessee student. We hope you’ll be a part of the efforts for continued high academic standards, fewer, but better tests, more innovation in education, and accountability for everyone in our classrooms.

We invite you to stop by our advocacy center and send a short note to your elected officials encouraging them to support Tennessee’s students. Thanks for being a part of this work with us.
