LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE - TOWN HALL MEETING MONDAY, APRIL 24
The EGR Legislative Committee will be hosting an Education Town Hall Meeting on Monday, April 24th at the EGR High School Little Auditorium from 5:30 pm - 7 pm. Several state legislators will be there to discuss education issues and answer your questions. We will also be highlighting the importance of the proposed Enhancement Millage -- voting on the May 2 ballot -- which would provide an additional $211 per student in operational funding for the next 10 years.
The EGR Legislative Committee keeps parents informed about important developments in Lansing that directly impact our kids in school. All are invited to attend the Legislative Committee's monthly meetings. The next meeting is this Wednesday, April 12 at 8:30 AM at Woodcliff.
