ATPE sincerely thanks this year’s Political Action Committee honorees who were recognized at the ATPE Summit for their donations to ATPE-PAC during the previous 2018-19 membership year.
Donations to ATPE-PAC by members like these help our association make campaign contributions to pro-public education candidates in Texas. The funds we received from our members helped ATPE influence the outcomes of the 2018 general election, which sent a number of pro-public education candidates to the Texas Legislature where they helped pass some of the most important education bills we’ve seen in years during the 2019 legislative session.
Thank you for all you do to help ATPE fight for public schools, students and your profession!
