The social isolation and related behavior issues are creating referrals for young children who were 18 months when the pandemic started who were kept home, as well as entering kindergartners who did not have access to preschool. Title I referrals are higher this year.

Question for Sarah: I've contacted my legislators many times, but I get form letters back and don't feel like it makes an impact. Can you speak to this "behind the scenes" aspects that might give me hope when I call/email?
Sharon Hirsch
01:45:55
It was a great day, working together to advocate for the PWFA!
Rachel Renbarger
02:02:23
Another question for Sarah: Is there a website that easily shows which are current policy proposals legislators are considering? I assume it's better to contact them about a specific bill compared to generic issues
