ROSEMOUNT, Minn. – District 196 is accepting applications through May 10 for three at-large citizen positions on the district’s Legislative Advisory Council (LAC). Applicants should have some experience or interest in government affairs lobbying and/or the legislative process. The terms of all three positions are for two years beginning July 1, 2019.

The purpose of the LAC is to increase citizen participation in the legislative process and community understanding of legislative issues and how they impact District 196. The council’s role is to provide input on and advocate for the district’s legislative priorities, review legislative suggestions submitted by citizens and staff, and provide input to the School Board regarding proposed legislation. The LAC meets at least four times during the school year, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

LAC membership consists of seven citizen members, five high school students and one representative from each of eight district advisory councils who are appointed to the LAC annually by their council. The district communications director and members of the School Board’s Legislative Committee serve as ex-officio members. The LAC is a nonpartisan council and members are expected to maintain neutrality regarding party politics.

People interested in being considered for LAC membership must apply by May 10. The application is available at www.district196.org/about/departments/communications/lac or by calling 651-423-7775. Completed applications should be mailed to Independent School District 196, Director of Communications, 3455 153rd Street W., Rosemount, MN 55068, or faxed to 651-423-7633.
