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.

Currently, the 2022 LAC Lead Team includes administration representation in collaboration with Board Member representation:

  • Dr. Stacie Stanley, Superintendent, Edina Public Schools
  • Jeff Jorgenson, Director of Student Support Services
  • Julie Greene serving as LAC chair
  • Dan Arom serving as LAC Vice-Chair

The LAC Lead Team works in partnership to support legislative advocacy through legislative priority development and Board approval, presentations to legislators, participation in committee meetings, and overall communication support efforts of LAC activities and events.
