On September 25th, Burbank Council PTA hosted a Community Engagement Night featuring guest speaker Carol Kocivar.

Continuing with our efforts to engage and inform the community about the California public education system, Burbank Council PTA invited Carol Kocivar to speak to community members on a wide variety of topics such as how California public schools are funded, teacher salaries and the state pension crisis, current legislation that could affect how our schools are funded, and how parents and community members can advocate for change for our kids.

This event was streamed live. Click HERE to watch the video.
