Subject: [abcmadison] Referendum Meeting Scheduled (Tuesday 6/24)

Individuals and groups interested in working to support a school referendum will be meeting on Tuesday 6/24 from 6:00-8:30, at Edgewood College in the Library Conference Room (directions below).
  Please join us and spread the word.
  Here is a tentative agenda (updated):
   Update form the Board of Education (including time line) -- (Note, it would be great if one or two Board members could attend, three would be illegal. Board members, please coordinate).   
   Possibilities of 4 year old kindergarten as a referendum item, advantages and disadvantages.   
   Other referendum ideas.     
      Specific programs/spending vs. general operating.  
      Recurring vs. non-recurring.  
      If non-recurring, number of years.  
      Leopold situation.
   What advocates/activists can and should be doing this Summer, including outreach and organization.     
      Interactions with the Board of Education.   
      Presentation training and prep (materials).   
      Chairs/Board, honorary and working?   
      Presentation scheduling for Fall (PTO, Neighborhood Associations, service organizations, other organizations...)   
      Sub Committees?
   Fundraiser(s)...(I think this is a must for the Summer; at very least one should be part of the back-to-school campaign kick off).
  Hope to see you there.
  The library is at the South end of campus.  The Edgewood website is being updated and the links to the campus map and virtual tour are not working.
