Advocacy Opportunity Tuesday, Nov. 10
Funding for schools is at a critical crossroads if we want our children to enjoy the high quality education provided by EGRPS. K-12 public education as we know it will change if something is not done soon. Significant cuts were made to this school year's budget in anticipation of reduced funding. Now EGRPS will have to cut as much as an additional $1,000,000 out of an already bare-bones budget.
Make a difference and car pool with fellow parents from Kent County school districts to Lansing on Tuesday, November 10. Meet in the Middle School parking lot by 8:30 a.m. The Governor will give a speech on the Capitol steps at 10:00 a.m. We will then have the chance to meet with our legislators to urge them to restore funding desperately needed by our public schools. Depending on numbers, seats on a chartered bus may be available.
Your voice has never been more important to our public education system. Email EGRPSLegislativeCommittee@hotmail.com with any questions.
