Fresno City Council approves act to work closer with local school districts

The Fresno City Council on Thursday approved a new policy called the “School Liaison Act” to create a subcommittee that would work closer with four local school districts and the State Center Community College District.

The subcommittee, made up of three council members, would work with the Fresno, Central, Clovis and Sanger school districts and the Fresno-based community college district to better plan growth, public transportation, school safety, access to city parks and school grounds after hours and to develop career technical education.

The act, introduced by Council Members Olivier Baines and Lee Brand, passed unanimously.
