As we kick off a new school year, we invite you to join forces with the Hopkins Legislative Action Coalition (LAC). As a non-partisan group of parents, community members, and school board representatives, we maintain close working relationships with the 12 state legislators who represent Hopkins Public Schools. We create and support specific pieces of legislation, and we oppose others, based on the best outcome for our public school students and Hopkins community.
Our mission is to identify and advocate for the education issues that affect Hopkins Public Schools and other districts across Minnesota. Working with input from our school board, administrative leaders, and local advocacy groups, we create an annual working document: the State Education Platform. Our legislators look forward to this Platform and refer to it throughout the session as bills are presented.
The LAC meets every Friday that school is in session, using a virtual format for the 2021-22 school year. These weekly meetings include updates from local education advocacy groups, invited legislators, school administrators, plus group input on Platform development.
If you are interested in how legislative action affects our schools, we encourage you to join us! Please send an email to email@example.com to receive the virtual link to the meetings which begin on September 10, 2021. Check out the LAC webpage for calendar dates, legislator information and more.
