This year we are continuing with the popular First Friday networking lunches for board trustees on the first Friday of the month from October – June. (The January lunch will be on the second Friday due to the holiday.) The lunches are an informal opportunity to talk with other school board trustees about education topics, governance issues, and whatever is on your mind. This year the lunches will be held at B Street and Vine in San Mateo from 11:30 a.m. – 1 pm. See the full year schedule of events here.
