CSBA Legislative Lobbying Day
Sacramento, CA- Legislative Action Day, and we are here on behalf of the California School Boards Association (CSBA). Representatives from Huntington Beach Union High School District, Los Alamitos Unified School District, Tustin Unified School District and Long Beach Unified School District. Along with my colleague Trustee Patricia Singer, we are proudly representing the Ocean View School District today. We have had the opportunity to meet with Senator Tom Umberg, Senator John Moorlach, Assemblyman Tyler Diep and Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris. We urged our representatives to support AB 39, which will increase the size of the LCFF base grant, while retaining local control for our specific districts priorities and student needs. We discussed AB 428, Special Education funding. This bill would remedy several long standing deficiencies in California's special education finance system. Advocacy for all of our students is our top priority in OVSD!
