MCLA + State Policy
How We Represent Members
MCLA’s mission is to support curriculum leaders and to champion policies and practices that enhance learning. In 2014 MCLA’s board decided to take an active role in state education policy making by providing information to both the Department of Education and to the legislature’s Education and Cultural Affairs Committee.
MCLA tracks bills that impact curriculum, instruction, assessment and standards and proficiency implementation. We poll our members on upcoming bills and potential state policies and report the results to members, the Department of Education, and to the legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs. MCLA’s members work in 77 districts. We provide poll data to state policy makers when we’ve heard from a majority of those districts (approved by the board on January 27, 2017).
