LIN is a volunteer-led collection of Mehlville School District residents who connect the community to the importance of legislative issues in Jefferson City and Washington, D.C. that impact education.
Why do we need community involvement in the LIN?
LIN participants help our community understand the impact our elected officials have on public education. By increasing this understanding our community can have a strong voice in legislative decisions that impact our students.
How does the LIN work?
Each member of the LIN will be kept informed about relevant school legislation issues through e-mail messages.
As members become aware of important issues, they are asked to make the information available to others throughout the community. Talking to friends, neighbors and family members, chatting with parents at a sports practice, or speaking at a community organization meeting, are valuable ways to share information.
There are no formal meetings to attend. Members are simply asked to share the information, and help keep the community educated about legislative issues that impact education. The LIN is a cooperative communication effort. If members have questions or information to share, they can send in their concerns and receive a response.
Who leads the Legislative Information Network?
The Network is led by community volunteers. Since this is a new initiative the leadership is currently being formed. If you are interested in volunteering for a leadership role please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (314) 467-5150.
