I represent the Dixie District on the Joint Legislative Action Committee. The committee, affectionately referred to by its acronym JLAC, meets monthly at the Marin County Office of Education. Members include school board members and superintendents across Marin County.
JLAC is preparing 2017 priorities for state legislation. These priorities represent joint interests of all school boards in Marin County. We will travel to Sacramento in January to lobby state legislators.
I presented the Dixie School Board with a draft of JLAC priorities at the November 2016 meeting to seek input from my colleagues. From my personal perspective, a top priority for JLAC should be full funding for special education.
