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.

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.

Lawmakers in both the House and Senate education committees have heard bills appropriating dollars for summer education programs. Contact members of the Minnesota Education Finance and Policy Committee to show your support in passing these bills.
