PTA Sponsors AB 2680

UPDATE as of 5/16/16 — On May 27, the Assembly Appropriations Committee will be voting to move AB 2680 off the suspense file to the Assembly floor. This is a critical point in the legislative process and we need your help! Tweet to support family-engagement funding!

Family engagement is a key predictor of student success. That’s why California State PTA is sponsoring Assembly Bill 2680 by Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla (Concord). This bill demonstrates a commitment to connecting families, schools and communities to improving student outcomes.

By allocating a one-time investment of seed money for school districts to develop family-engagement strategies, AB 2680 will:

  • Strengthen active and meaningful participation of parents, students and families in the development and updating of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs)
  • Empower parents, students and families to become active leaders in school communities through training at the school and district levels
  • Foster engagement to support parents and families as their children’s first teachers and encourage parents to advocate for a quality education for their child and for all children.

It’s time to engage all parents and families for the success of our students, our schools and our state.
