Help Wanted: Referendum Information Team

Please consider being a member of the building level referendum team. The purpose of having a building level team is to funnel information through that group and to have building level contacts should questions arise. The district Cabinet and Communications Dept. will still be responsible for the messaging and responding to questions. On your team we should include 3-4 staff members and 2 parents. These teams are strictly information teams and not a yes/no referendum team.

Please email Tina by Wed., May 6th if you would be willing to help out as a member of the building level referendum team!
