We invite you to join the attorneys of Parker & Covert LLP next week at the 43rd Annual California's Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH) Conference on School Facilities! After several years in Southern California, the CASH Conference will return to the newly renovated Sacramento Convention Center.
Three attorneys from Parker & Covert LLP will be providing valuable information to conference attendees on a variety of facilities and funding topics that impact public schools.
Wednesday, February 23, 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Addison Covert will be leading a discussion on funding eligibility entitled More Money More Problems. This workshop will feature an experienced team, including Michael Krause of Adelanto Elementary School District, Maureen McDonald of Southland Energy, and Jonathan Berry-Smith of Lozano Smith, providing insight into ESSER and other federal funding. They will discuss what the federal government wants from school districts; the more money districts come across, the more expenditure and compliance problems they see.

Stacy Toledo will be facilitating a mini workshop on Using Your Facilities to Address Inequality and Inequity for Students and Teachers. Stacy and Ken Gaston, Director of Maintenance, Operations & Transportation at River Delta Unified School District, will discuss how improving school facilities can address inequality and inequity issues. Participants will also learn about funding sources to make much needed facilities improvements.
Thursday, February 24, 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m
Meghan Covert Russell will be “talking trash,” organic waste reduction and edible food recovery, that is. Meghan will be discussing the requirements and implementation of SB 1383 with CalRecyle Senior Environmental Scientist Specialist Curie Canuela and Go Green Initiative CEO Jill Buck. They will also discuss staffing implications, including training and collective bargaining agreements, as they relate to an employee's role in waste reduction and edible food recovery.
Friday, February 25, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Meghan will also be participating in a panel discussion about Changes in the Law. This workshop is designed to help participants navigate new and anticipated changes in the law in the area of facilities.
