*Lapham/Marquette Community,*
**
*Many of you have been asking about next year's budget process and how a
referendum will fit into that. If you're interested in learning about and
getting involved in a referendum campaign, there's an initial meeting on
Tuesday. I plan to be there and will try to keep the PTG abreast of what is
happening, but if you've got energy to put into supporting the school
district, this is a great time to get involved.*

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.
