Happy Holidays from your Legislative Committee

We have our first meeting right when we get back in January.  January 3, 2011 in the front conference room at the  Woodcliff Administrative Building at 11:45am.

I will send an agenda out closer to the time.

Thank you to those committee members took time to help me plan for next semester and beyond for this committee.

One idea we are working on is to increase our profile in the schools, we are thinking of advocating for reporting earlier during the school building PTA meetings since we are part of the PTA Council rather than a building committee.

Another idea is to have some kind of forum to address school funding since we are facing a huge deficit next school year and budget decisions will likely have to be made once the new year rolls around.  We are thinking that parents need a continuous review of the basics of school funding in order to understand the changes that are made.

If you have any other ideas for increasing both our profile and our effectiveness, please come to a meeting and send your thoughts to me at

Until then, Happy Hollidays. 
Lucy Lafleur and the committee
