Support affordable housing for educators and classified professionals
March 24, 2019

Post

Whereas, educator and classified professional pay has not kept pace with inflation and the cost of living; and

Whereas, there are school closures and schools far below capacity; and

Whereas, there are school districts with a surplus of property; and

Whereas, districts statewide are experiencing a teacher shortage; and

Whereas, educators and classified professionals often cannot afford to live in the communities in which they work; and

Whereas, educators and classified professionals that live in the communities they serve are more apt to build relationships with families, continue their employment in the community, and become members of the community;

Therefore, be it resolved, that the CFT support or sponsor legislation that would ease restrictive permitting processes and offer incentives to school districts to convert district-owned surplus property into 100 percent affordable housing specified for educators and classified professionals.
