  • Legislative Action Committees: What are they?

    Public School Parent buttonsWe were asked recently, what is an LAC? LAC stands for Legislative Action Committee or Coalition. They are community-based groups established by parents and residents or sometimes local school boards. Members are active advocates for public policies that positively impact schools and students. They provide information, educate and advise their local school boards, community members and Legislators. They are grassroots and they are influential!
    If you would like to learn more about how to organize a parent-resident group, we would like to help. Check out our RESOURCES!

    Want to network with Legislative Action Committee members from other school districts? If you are a member of an LAC, have considered starting one, or just want to learn more, please join us early, 10-11am, before our Parent Leadership Summit begins on October 2. REGISTER NOW!

    Many organizations exist across the state, including Parents United, Legislative Action Committees and Coalitions and others that help support parents and residents bring their concerns about public schools to the Legislature. Check out our Directory of Organizations to learn more.
