Legislative Advocacy

Real changes in education for High Ability students can come through government legislation. Getting involved in advocating at the local and state levels is another way to support your child’s needs.

Contact your state and federal legislators to voice your support for funding high
ability education. Not sure who your legislators are? Go here to find your Nebraska state senator. Web sites and addresses are included. You can often submit a brief email right online.

Visit the Nebraska Department of Education website to find information on the Nebraska State School Board and contact your school board member.
