About the Novato
Parents & Family Coalition (NPFC)
What happened at the beginning… On Aug. 8, 2002 (shortly after the NUSD Board meeting on Aug. 6 finalizing its decision for a Aug. 20 vote), we launched a petition drive. We then met again to finalize a name, pursue a web site, phone number, etc. … a lot has happened in those first four short weeks.
What we have done from there… The NPFC petition drive was successful. We have also become a consistent, respected and responsible voice within the NUSD school system. While we don't want to be doing this, we are here to stay … as long as our voice represents so many Novato parents, families, children and concerned citizens. And as in past school board elections, we will continue to encourage people to become familiar with the issues and to vote.
How we'll dialogue with others… see our Guiding Principles for Public Dialogue.
You can help too… whether or not you get involved with NPFC, please feel free to use our information and positions to interact with the NUSD school system or with anyone else as you see fit. We are glad to serve as an information clearinghouse as well as being a unifying voice on these important issues. We only ask that, if you use any NPFC materials, please credit us by including our name and website address on those materials.
How to contact us… Visit the NPFC website at www.NovatoParents.org (to view this page, the petition, etc.). Our e-mail address is npfc@NovatoParents.org. We welcome your comments, questions, and involvement.
