On behalf of DCYF, please find our revised state agenda language Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Please note that education issues are vital to the children, youth and families agenda, particularly this session and I am operating on the understanding that Hydra has or will submit the City's education priorities. We're happy to add our two cents if its needed, but understand it is covered elsewhere.
