SACRAMENTO, CA – California State Auditor Elaine Howle published a report this week entitled, “Gaps in Oversight Contribute to Weakness in the State’s Information Security.” The report is the third in a series of reports updating policymakers on the “high risk” status of California state government’s information security programs. 

A solution to childcare needs in Ventura County

In Ventura County alone, an estimated 12,000 preschool-age children cannot access or participate in preschool due to space, costs, and program limitations. Only 4% of the region’s demand for infant and toddler childcare is being met.

Within our region, there are two populations that are confronted with unique obstacles to accessing reliable childcare — farmworkers and university students with children. We need a creative and collaborative solution to the childcare shortage that our region is experiencing.
