Sue Todey, a 15-year member of the Sevastopol School Board, has been elected president of the Fair Aid Coalition, a statewide organization that advocates for high-property-value school districts at the state Capitol. Gibraltar Superintendent Tina Van Meer also serves on the coalition’s board.
The Fair Aid Coalition is working to modify the state’s high-cost transportation-aid program as part of the 2021-23 state budget. The proposal would benefit about 287 school districts that have above-average per-pupil transportation costs and address the concern that funds dedicated to transportation cannot be used in the classroom.
Todey is also president of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards’ board of directors, chairs Cooperative Educational Service Agency 7’s board of control and serves on the Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance Board.
