Hello School Board Members and Superintendents,
We hope you are all staying healthy through this challenging time!
Advocacy & Networking Opportunities
Thanks to our joint advocacy and that of many others, vaccines have been prioritized in our county for education workers. School districts are partnering with our county office of education and health department to ensure access as soon as possible. Thank you everyone for your efforts to keep educators and front line staff safe!
Next up, CSBA Legislative Action Week March 15-19th. Sign up today at https://csba.org/Advocacy/LegislativeAdvocacy/LegislativeActionDay2021. This is where we’d normally all meet up in Sacramento and visit our state legislators. This year it is all virtual, but still a great opportunity to jointly advocate for our schools.
