Thank you for your interest in the relationship between Lincoln Public Schools and our political representatives and decision-making bodies, commonly referred to as Governmental Relations. Our goal is to effectively communicate to others the needs of the Lincoln Public Schools, its staff, students, and families, related to a wide range of existing and proposed legislation and regulations. So often people believe that the only legislation that affects schools are laws specific to education. But, almost every facet of law affects schools – transportation, banking, insurance, natural resources, law enforcement, veterans affairs and many others – because of our diverse programming and the number of people that we touch daily.
