New Resource for AACTE Members – State Policy Maker Contact Lists
A new resource is now available to help AACTE members and state affiliates connect with education officials in their states.
AACTE staff have compiled lists of contact information (member login required) for each state’s governor, chief school officer, relevant legislature committees, and education agency staff. In addition, the lists include a resource from the Sunlight Foundation’s Open States web site that can be used to find your state legislators.
The contact lists are intended to help you build and maintain relationships with these officials while expanding your state advocacy activities, especially as state policy makers scrutinize teacher preparation programs. Remember that these policy makers have influence on program approval, accreditation, and licensure. We encourage you to use these lists to reach out to officials to provide input on policy and regulations on the state and program level.
AACTE will update the lists periodically, but please let us know if your state’s information needs to be updated. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 478-4504.
Meanwhile, if you need assistance with contacting your members of Congress, please contact Deborah Koolbeck at email@example.com or (202) 478-4506.
