Sessions Aim to Educate Community Ahead of November 8 Vote

 

The Madison School District will hold two informational sessions in October aimed at educating the community about the November 8 referendum. The sessions will be held at La Follette High School on October 13 and Memorial High School on October 27.

 

Both sessions will include a presentation at 6:30pm, followed by question and answer from attendees, as well as questions submitted through social media. Questions will be answered by a panel of district representatives including Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham, board members and district staff.

 

The school district’s referendum will appear on the back of the November 8 ballot. Both sessions will also be live on Facebook. Community members are also welcome to submit questions to referendum@madison.k12.wi.us or through the district’s social Facebook or Twitter accounts.

 

Light refreshments will be provided at each session. To request childcare, interpretation or transportation, email referendum@madison.k12.wi.us.
