Efficiency and Effectiveness Collaborative

  • Background

    In fall of 2009, a group of superintendents and school board trustees came together with the support of the Marin County Office of Education to review potential opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the public school districts in Marin. The group is now called the Efficiency and Effectiveness (E2) Collaborative.

    Statement of Purpose

    The purpose of the E2 Collaborative is to promote school districts' collaboration with one another and with other entities to efficiently and effectively maintain or enhance their educational offerings, administrative operations, and other school activities. By sharing information and services, school districts can leverage collective strengths, focus on economies of scale, and reduce redundant efforts

    E2 Collaborative Committee Co-Chairs: 

    Linda Jackson (San Rafael) and Tara Taupier (Tamalpais)

    E2 Collaborative Members:

    A.J. Brady (Reed), Brett Geithman (Larkspur Corte Madera), David Hellman (MCBE), Debbie Butler (Novato), Heather McPhail Sridharan (Kentfield), Jim Hogeboom (San Rafael), Jill Sellers (Larkspur Corte Madera), Marilyn Nemzer (MCBE), Nancy Lynch (Reed), Tara Taupier (Tamalpais), Terena Mares (MCOE), Samantha Hunt (Office of Assemblymember Marc Levine), and Teri Louer (Ross Valley)
