Opportunity Tour: School Board

6 mins read

Join us for the Opportunity Tour: School Board Edition on TUESDAY, April 19th at our Allegan Technical Center auditorium.

Who serves on your school board?

How important is the school board to your children’s education and our whole community?

Join us in Allegan for the Opportunity Tour, where you’ll hear directly from school board members in our community. We will go over the basics of what it takes to run and what this nonpartisan role entails. We need strong candidates who support strong public schools now more than ever. This is your chance to learn how YOU can help save our public schools, end the book banning and ensure every student has what they need to be successful. Who would you like to see on your school board? Are you interested and want to learn more? We hope to see you there!

Many hands make light work, so please join us for Adopt-a-Highway Clean-up!
