Efficiency and Effectiveness

The purpose of the Efficiency and Effectiveness Task Force is to work with school districts in Marin to study, analyze and promote best practices related to shared services. Our goal is to maximize resources to support student learning. This includes exploring how we may leverage our collective strengths, focusing on economies of scale and reducing redundant efforts, while ensuring the benefits of local control.
