RootEd Swag

Need a RootEd Rep for your school?

Does your school have a RootEd Rep? We are having a RootEd Rep Blitz right now! We want all of our schools represented with parents who are already cheerleaders for their schools, who want to learn more about the ins and outs of public education and who are willing to use their time to fight for your school. The Reps are getting a swag bag and are being entered into a drawing for cool prizes!!

Use this link to send to the parent who would be a great RootEd Rep for your school:
