School board members flock to Sacramento for Legislative Action Day

On March 13, 2018, CSBA members from across the state attended CSBA’s annual Legislative Action Day to meet with lawmakers and advocate for public schools. More than 200 school board members held 103 meetings with Senators and Assemblymembers in the Capitol to push for the Full and Fair Funding of California’s public schools, discuss the pension crisis, talk about school facilities funding and inform their legislators about CSBA’s sponsored bills. The day also included legislative briefings from CSBA’s governmental relations staff, ceremonies for two California Senators honored with CSBA’s Legislative Awards and the presence of CSBA staff outside the Capitol to share information with the public about the day’s advocacy message.

Here’s a brief roundup of the day through the eyes of social media. For more media coverage, visit CSBA’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The day included a strong presence both inside and outside of the Capitol. Anyone walking up the North Lawn of the Capitol could learn about CSBA, school board members and the state of public education funding in California:
