      This July, Governor Jerry Brown signed his Local Control Finance Formula into law. The law reforms the way schools are funded throughout California and intends to distribute the state's education funding equitably so low-income students, English Learners, and foster youth have additional resources to support their educational needs. To ensure that our members understand this law and its impact on Bay Area schools, we have convened a panel of experts to analyze the complete path of this bill from idea to passage to implementation. The panel will address the politics and policy behind the bill and what it means for our local schools. 

      This landmark decision will begin affecting school finance in CA soon. You won't want to miss out!

      Pizza and drinks will be provided.
