Our advocates are an essential part of the communication pipeline, as they are some of the first people to hear about student and staff accomplishments and learn about new District initiatives. Armed with information, they can reach out to their families, friends and neighbors – especially the 80% of households who don’t have children in our schools – to share the Colonial’s accolades and explain the challenges facing the District and public education.
We are urging everyone to call Senator Pat Toomey's officer and encourage him to vote against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.
Help keep legislators in the loop about public education
Did you know that state funding for Special Education has remained stagnant since 2011 -- while state mandates about the services the District is supposed to provide continues to rise? That's only one issue facing public education in Pennsylvania today.
Stay informed about issues that affect Colonial by joining the Advocacy Email List or Advocacy LinkedIn Group, and contact your legislators to let them know you'd like them to support public education.
