City of Novato

What is the role and responsibility of the City of Novato? How are pensions really going to affect our community? What are the barriers to getting involved with City government?

LN PARTNER NUSD

Novato Unified School District

Have schools really changed all that much since you were there? How is NUSD dealing with budget shortcomings? Where are the new facilities going and how will that affect a child's education? Why are students not pushed towards skill jobs instead of only academia?

Ed Stark

Ed Stark saw the unique districts in Novato as an asset for the residents because they could get involved in the community; but with little to no training, the individual decisions that each district was making were creating a mess. In a community like ours, Ed Stark Realized that getting involved was great, but a good foundation could make things run smoother. in 1990 he, with the support of the City, and several of the other districts created Leadership Novato through the Novato Chamber.

Today the Program continues this rich heritage and over the years we have added components of civil service, economics and other education pieces that can help develop  strong leaders. Students today get to run and oversee service projects that actually leave  a lasting mark on the face of our community.
