Call to Action – Speak Up for Schools!

The next two weeks are critical for the Oregon K-12 Education Budget and the future of our children! The funding level being proposed is $7.235 billion, which would result in reductions across the state. For Beaverton, it means our schools would lose $90 per student, which translates to a loss of $4.1 million next year.

This is an unacceptable level of funding! Why is education so low on Oregon’s priority list? We need to aggressively act now! A loud and collective voice will make a difference! Please consider calling or writing a personal letter or email to ALL our legislators and voice your concern over this. Please see the Beaverton School District website for more information and a sample letter.

Adding your own concerns, personal story, or experience to the letter will make it even more powerful.

Please spread the word. #Speakup4Schools THANK YOU!
