Call To Action

Thank you to those of you who have shared concerns in letters to the local papers and the Board of Education, and who have been kind enough to let Support Jeffco Kids post it to our website.  


But, please don’t stop there!  The June 5th Board of Ed meeting is crucial.   There are many important items on the agenda: Jeffco Board of Ed Agenda.  We urge you to also email your City Mayor or City Council. If you live in Unincorporated Jefferson County, write the Jefferson County Commissioners, contact your pastor where you worship, or write the President of your Chamber of Commerce.   We have listed the Commissioner’s contact info and Chambers’ info below the City Mayor’s contact info. 


These community leaders all have influence with this new board majority.  They need to know the community is upset, and until they become inconvenienced by the influx of mail or phone calls, they have no incentive to take a stand or make a statement.
