The California County Boards of Education honored state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, this week for her strong support of the state’s public schools.

“Senator Wolk is keenly aware of the challenges facing teachers and school administrators, given her long history of community and public service and her experience as a teacher at both public and private schools,” said Napa County Superintendent of Schools Barbara Nemko, who nominated Wolk for the award. “She is a strong supporter of public education, and I am proud to have her as my representative.”

Wolk received the group’s 2013 Legislator of the Year Award for her work on policy issues facing school districts statewide, including legislation enacted in August urging Congress and the president to support comprehensive gun violence prevention policy at the federal level.

CCBE also cited Wolk’s work as a member of the Senate Select Committee on Autism and Related Disorders on issues relating to autism spectrum disorders facing families and educators.

The group also noted Wolk’s work in past years on policy issues facing school districts statewide, including declining enrollment and home-to-school transportation. Her legislation also focused on the need to strengthen accountability measures and ensure equity for charter schools and provide intensive professional development in management and standards-based instructional leadership to high school principals.
