Including a Presentation on Key PTA Issues in State & Federal Legislation
Funding for schools in California continues to be a major concern of the PTA, along with other issues affecting children and families. How can we influence the legislative process? Debbie Look, State PTA’s Director of Legislation, will share how she, as a volunteer, works to educate the state legislators to see the PTA point of view. The presentation will include a brief overview of key legislative issues for PTA, at both the state and federal level and an overview of the current status of education funding. The presentation will follow a brief business meeting starting at 7 p.m. All members of the community are invited to attend!
