Legislative Action Committee

About the Legislative Action Committee (LAC)

The Edina School Board developed a non-partisan Legislative Action Committee in Fall 2018 focused on issues impacting education in Minnesota and Edina Public Schools, specifically. The LAC has set the following goals:

  • To develop and propose legislative positions to the School Board, designed to advance Edina Public School’s mission;

  • To inform and publicize approved legislative positions and proposed actions to the Board and community;

  • To coordinate advocacy efforts throughout the District;

  • To advocate to state and federal legislators for positions identified by the LAC and approved by the Board.
