History and Organization

In spring of 2000, our school district superintendent announced a budget deficit of $2.5M. In response, parents, teachers and the community were organized across the District to raise funds to meet the budget deficit, and gather signatures for a petition that would be hand delivered to the state capitol (and forwarded to the Governor) by local school children.
 
By June, 2000, our community raised $90,000 and collected 3,500 petition signatures. 
Community participation and feedback was tremendous and, as a result, the Fiscal Advisory Committee was reinvigorated and expanded to encompass the Fiscal, Legislative and Revenue Enhancement Committees.
