November 2013

Program Planning in League is more than what will be our next public event.  Program planning is part of the process where we set our priorities for the coming two years.  Will we have a new study or update an old one?  Will we focus on education and action around an adopted position?

We will be doing program planning at the national and local levels early next year, but it is not too early to start thinking. 
To get you started links to all of our current positions - local, county, state and national can be found on our website


As a result of program planning at the state level last spring, one area selected for education and/or action was Public Education with the focus on early childhood education and the newly adopted Local Control Funding Formula.


At a special board meeting on Tuesday, November 19th at 4:00p.m. in the Lincoln Middle School Cafetorium the community, along with the Board of Education, will have the opportunity to listen to a thorough presentation of this new formula as our local schools start planning for implementation.  More information and the full agenda are available here.
