PTSA ADVOCACY

Advocacy for NHS Juniors and Seniors:


Every year, each Irvine high school sponsors 5 students to take a trip to Sacramento. This year it will be a virtual conference and will take place the week of March (final dates and times TBD). 

 

The purpose of the conference is to meet with state lawmakers and staff to express public education concerns and ideas, hear from a variety of experts on state education policy and network with IUSD students, administrators, and school board members. Students attending the virtual conference will go through several information gathering meetings with IUSD school leadership and will be expected to research on their own. This is an exciting opportunity!


If you are interested, please fill out the application attached (including teacher recommendation) and return it to Dr. Roach by January 6th. Applications are also available in the front office.
