AASA Sequestration SmartForm

The cuts of the sequester are drawing ever closer, and it is all but certain that the 5.3% cut will take place on March 1 and impact federal funds within your school budget for the 2013-14 school year. The cuts of the sequester would apply to all discretionary education programs, except Federal Pell Grants. Cuts of this magnitude would reduce funding for the US Education Department by billions of dollars. These cuts would affect millions of students and lead to potentially significant job losses and program eliminations for the nation’s schools, the educators who run them, and the students they educate.

Please complete this brief smartform and help AASA detail the true impact of the sequester on the nation's schools.

First, use the AASA Sequestration Invoice to calculate the impact the sequester would have on your district. The link to the invoice is at the end of this paragraph. All you need to complete the form is your district's funding level (2011-12 school year) for certain federal edcuation programs (Title I Grant to LEA, Title II Teacher Quality, Title III, IDEA State Grant, Perkins/Career Tech, Headstart). Once you input the data in to the invoice, it will calculate the cut to your district. You can access the AASA Sequestration Invoice here: http://goo.gl/Mf9Pj

Second, use the information from the invoice (Column G, under the cell labeled '5.3% Cut') to complete the rest of this smartform.

Submitting the information via SmartForm collects all responses in a common, secure database that AASA's advocacy team can use in it's federal advocacy outreach about the sequester. Feel free to use the AASA invoice to reach out to your Congressional delegation as well!
