On December 6, 2012, UC Berkeley's Center for Cities & Schools, in collaboration with the California Department of Education, California Department of Public Health, Governor's Office of Planning and Research, Strategic Growth Council, and Health in All Policies Task Force, brought together leaders from across California to discuss the alignment of important policy agendas: ensuring high-quality, opportunity-rich schools in healthy, sustainable communities. This brief presents the key themes: (1) Collective Success Demands Collaboration; (2) Regional Planning Processes Help to Overcome Structural Barriers to Collaboration; and (3) School Facilities Lack a Sustainable Funding Source, but the Resulting Changes Will Present Opportunities from the conversation and outlines next steps: (1) Leverage the update of municipal General Plan Guidelines by the Governor's Office of Planning and Research; (2) Leverage the review and update of Title 5 (CA Code of Regulations on school facilities) by the California Department of Education; (3) Provide resources for local school districts on SB 375 and the Sustainable Communities Strategies; (4) Leverage the inter-agency efforts of the Health in All Policies Task Force; and (5) Inform the State Allocation Board review of the School Facilities Program identified by participants.
