This morning we received an email from Superintendent Dan McMinimee regarding the State Superintendents standing together to call for adequate funding for our students! We are sharing and we’d like anyone who is available to be involved. This is an opportunity coordinated along with Great Education Colorado and we fully support it! If you are NOT able to attend, please click the link and sign your name in support AND share this with your friends and networks!
Message from Great Ed:
For the past two years, Colorado’s Superintendents have joined together, advocating at the state capitol for better investment in Colorado’s schools, classrooms and students.
Thankfully, they are doing it again in 2016.
On Monday, January 11 at 11:30 am, superintendents will come together with parents and business and community leaders to call on Colorado’s policy makers to find new solutions to the challenges ahead so every Colorado student receives the education they deserve. Great Ed will be there, and we hope you will, too! (RSVP here.)
If you can’t be there, we hope you will stand with the superintendents virtually, by signing the statement. We want to show legislators that public education supporters throughout Colorado appreciate the Colorado Superintendents’ Advocacy for Adequate School Funding and their continuing work to ensure that Colorado delivers on the promise of an effective education for each and every child in our state through an excellent public school system.

Good Morning, Happy New year!
I am excited for 2016 and know this is going to be a great year for Jeffco Schools.
You are receiving this email because I know that you want to see Jeffco Schools be the best that they can be. I am asking you to show your support for all schools in the State of Colorado through an event happening this upcoming Monday, January 11, 2016 at 11:30 am in the West Foyer of the Colorado State Capitol.
Colorado Superintendents and Great Ed Colorado are gathering for an event… Great Ed Colorado is actively supporting our efforts and is attempting to gain as much parent support for our Advocacy Statement as possible. They are sending out a call to action encouraging attendance at our January 11 media event and also asking folks who cannot attend to support our efforts by signing their online petition“Stand with the Superintendents!”
To assist in this effort, we ask that you forward the following link to parents and others in your community via a personal message so that they can directly indicate their support for our advocacy: Care About Students? Stand with the Superintendents!
Please help me advocate for our students and schools as you see fit. I appreciate it.
Hoping you have a safe and productive 2016.
