Legislative Action Coalition (LAC)

The Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) is a group of parents and community members
who advocate on behalf of Robbinsdale Area Schools
for students, families and community members on education.

            Awesome Advocating for Education! 
           Day at Capitol Rep Loon and District 45

On February 22 the Robbinsdale Area Schools Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) and communities from Wayzata, Hopkins and Orono school districts hosted a Day at the Capitol. In the 21 meetings with legislators, groups heard updates about what's happening at the Capitol and shared education priorities including: increasing the Basic Education Formula by 2% each year, increasing special education funding to reduce the funding shortfall and concerns about education tax credits and vouchers.

The Election Is Over...
        the Results Are In 

When the 90th State Legislature convenes on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 
there will be 23 new legislative members. Republicans enlarged their 
control of the Minnesota House of Representatives and gained control of 
the Minnesota Senate for the first time since 2011-12. 

The Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) is looking forward to working with each of our newly elected School Board Members and State Legislators. 
We are grateful to all the candidates who ran for elected offices for their commitment and willingness to serve our community.

School Board Members Re-Elected
