Education funding and other school-related legislative issues are on the agenda at a March 10 Town Hall meeting with 12th District lawmakers.

The Wenatchee Education Association and the North Central Uniserv Council are hosting the meeting from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Wenatchee High School New Commons.

Sen. Brad Hawkins and Rep. Mike Steele have both committed to attending, along with Brandt Cappell of Rep. Cary Condotta’s office.

The agenda, which has been put together by Wenatchee Education Association member Adam MacDonald, will start with a brief introduction by each of the lawmakers followed by a question and answer session.

MacDonald said local educators have questions about everything from the McCleary decision funding to proposed changes in national board certifications.

Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess.

While the focus primarily education focused, it is open to everyone,” MacDonald said.
