Legislative Action Coalition

Community-driven advocacy dedicated to lobbying for educational policies and funding

The Hopkins Public Schools Legislative Action Coalition assists the Hopkins School Board in advocacy for education-related legislation. The LAC Steering Committee coordinates these advocacy efforts throughout the Hopkins School District by developing, proposing, and advocating for legislative positions designed to advance the cause of good schools in Hopkins and Minnesota. The Legislative Action Coalition and the LAC Steering Committee exist by Hopkins School Board policy and their activities are subject to Hopkins School Board approval.

Many community members are wondering why the COVID-19 federal relief money is not enough for schools. We encourage you to take a look at our legislative priorities below and take action by contacting your legislators and legislative leaders.

Over the next several days, House and Senate Leadership will be working to establish funding targets, including how much funding will be dedicated to schools for the next two years. It is critically important that they hear from guardians, community members, school leaders about the importance of investing in our local schools.
