PTA News for Week of 3/20
Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org on 3/20/17
VOTE ON APRIL 4! The upcoming local elections are especially important to Still Middle School parents as this election will decide 4 of the members of the IPSD School Board for the next four years. Right now, the State of Illinois owes IPSD 204 $15 million and a property tax freeze is likely to pass in Springfield: both of these developments directly impact how our schools are funded. This means the budget cuts are very likely to come to our district in the very near future. Don't you want a say in electing the people who will decide where to cut and where to spend at our schools in the coming years? Take the time to learn a little about the candidates. Here is a link to the Candidate Forum which IPSD 204 held on March 7: http://204tv.org/ Here is a link to an article in the Daily Herald where the candidates were interviewed about class size: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170306/news/170309335/ Also, please see the attached Voter's Guide which includes a questionnaire filled out by each candidate.
