Local Advocacy Toolkit
I wanted to share this local toolkit from Arts Ed Washington.

ArtsEd Washington launches new Parent Toolkit for School Board Advocacy
Over the next few weeks, every district and School Board in Washington State will be examining its budget and many will seek community input in making the decisions on areas to be cut.
It’s fair to assume that the arts will be vulnerable in these discussions. School Boards may not have heard much this year from those of us that support the arts. They may assume that we won’t mind if they remove arts learning from our child’s education.
So now is the time to tell them that we do care. Executive Director, Una McAlinden, herself a parent of public school students, is “in the trenches” in her own district and wants to share the parent engagement ideas that she has developed. Read her Parent to Parent letter here and the Action Alert and Toolkit here.
Keep us posted on what's happening in your districts! Additional support for School Board Advocacy is available here.
