Alone We Can Do Good. Together we can do great.
You can make a difference. There are many ways you can get involved to support your public schools; a great first place to start is by gaining awareness of the key issues in education by either browsing our website and/or some of the others listed below. The next step may be to attend a Board of Education meeting or any meeting that is open to the community (ie. legislative committee meetings, school council meetings etc.) to gain a deeper understanding of the issues particular to your school district. Ultimately, the only way to change education policy is to take action on a local level, state/county level, or both! The following page is dedicated to providing several ways to get involved which can be as simple as sending in a refusal letter to attending a rally. What are you waiting for? Jump in, get inspired, and get involved!
