For the 15th year, the Office of Santa Clara County Board Supervisor, Dave Cortese, is coordinating the Sacramento Bus Trip for Education which takes education advocates, parents, student, community leaders and residents from Santa Clara County to the state’s capitol to meet with their legislators.
Bus Trip participants gain an in-depth knowledge of K-12 public education and higher education issues. Participants receive updates on current legislative proposals, a status update on school funding and other key public education efforts. More importantly, those who participate have an opportunity to voice their interests and concerns directly to state legislators.
This year, we are expecting an expanded discussion to include immigration, health care, housing, civil rights and other topics in response to changes in the Federal Administration.
Buses will leave from and return to the same location. The trip is free and a light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
