Who Represents California's High Schools?

Connecting legislators with their constituents' high schools

Policy decisions can have a big impact on schools, families and students, but most of us would be hard-pressed even to name our elected representatives, much less know how to connect with them. The problem runs the other way, too — legislators don't necessarily know the high schools they represent.

We decided to do something about it. This page contains three useful, interactive maps that show the electoral boundaries of Assembly Districts, Senate Districts, and Congressional Districts in California. Each of these maps is linked to information about the high schools located within their boundaries, how to contact the principal of each school, and how to contact the representative via Twitter and/or Instagram.

Why we built this tool now

The Ed100 Online Academy for Student Leaders will be held June 21-23. It's a free conference open to any California high school student and to high school faculty members who works with student leaders. The application deadline is June 4, but late applications will be accepted through June 14. More than 800 students have already applied as of this writing, but many high schools are totally missing out.

High school student leaders can only apply for this conference if they hear about it! We need your help to get the message to individual school principals. Will you volunteer an hour of your time? This tool makes it incredibly easy to make a difference. With a few clicks through the maps below, you can send emails directly to principals that need to take action in support of their students.

Attention, Legislators!

We are organizing this outreach effort around legislative districts as an invitation to elected officials to help spread the word, fast. Updated at least daily, the tool makes it easy to see results.
