About Cal School News

Where do you get news on policy and politics of Calfiornia's 1,000+ school districts? Here, that's where. 

Cal School News was launched in 2015 to be a lively resource for information on the people and issues shaping education in California. From the Capitol to cafeteria, we're looking out for interesting stories and building a community of educators, administrators and anyone with an interest in education in the Golden State.

We'll be tracking major policy decisions, significant staffing changes at the District level and anything we see relevant, funny or worthy of a few moments of your time. You can also see job listings, post a job, or send us ideas for stories. Got press releases? We want em

Cal School News is a project of GrassrootsLab, a California research and consulting group specializing in local government and with a 10 year track record of online publishing. See our other projects at www.CaliforniaCityNews.org and www.CaliforniaCountyNews.org.
