Dear Jeff and Region 7 Leadership,

I had the pleasure of attending the first meeting of the Legislative Policy Committee yesterday as the Region 7 Representative yesterday. The focus of the meeting was to provide an orientation for new members, such as myself, to the roles, responsibilities and procedures of the committee. I have attached the agenda for your review. I have requested to serve on Subcommittee 1 which will focus on the following issues: Accountability, Adult Education, Assessment/Testing, CCEE, CALPDS, Common Core, Community Schools, Curriculum & Instruction, English Language Learners/Reclassification, Equity, Graduation Requirements, Homeless Youth, Instructional Materials, LCFF/LCAP Accountability, Online Learning, QEIA, Standards, and Supplemental Instruction.


As you are aware, all bills must be submitted by February 27 and the Committee will not meet again untilMarch 27. ACSA Staff anticipates providing Committee Members with links to all submitted bills by March 21with their current recommended positions. At that time, I will share the information with Region 7 membership and request their feedback before the next Committee meeting (short turnaround time is noted!). We were asked to encourage everyone to participate in Legislative Action Day (March 15-16)


Please let me know if you would like more information regarding the Committee Meeting. I am looking forward to serving on the Committee!
