It’s a glorious spring week and we’re busy gearing up for next year’s big discussion about how to address funding basic education across the state. First, we’re exploring what should be included in the definition of basic education. We welcome your input on what you think should be prioritized. To that end, we’ll be hosting a series of FREE Lunchtime LEVinars throughout the spring and summer to highlight this meaty topic.
Our first LEVinar happens next Tuesday, May 17 at 12:30pm. Our Policy team will share what we can expect from the Legislature’s McCleary Task Force, moderated by State Field Director Kelly Munn. Register HERE.
Thank you to everyone who participated in GiveBIG last week! Although there were some technical glitches that impacted the day, we still raised important funds that will help us ensure that our kids who need more support get the resources they need.
Thanks for all you do for kids. We couldn’t do it without you.
Thank You for Giving BIG!
We’d like to give a special shout-out to the Aurora Lilac Fund, Anonymous, Lisa Jaret, Betsy Johnson, Erin Kahn, Arik Korman, Amy Liu, Kelly Norton, Laurel Preston and Sharon Rodgers!
Any amount was appreciated and no gift was too small!
