Make Monday's Public Hearing Last Until Midnight

Spend some time this weekend inviting friends and neighbors to join you at the Public Hearing on the Superintendent's Preliminary Recommendation for school closures, which is scheduled for Monday, June 12th from 6 pm to 8 pm at the John Stanford Center at 2445 3rd Avenue South.

Anybody can sign up to speak for 3 minutes by calling (206) 252-0040 or sending an e-mail message to pjoakes@seattleschools.org. The recorded message says there will be no limit to the number of speakers that night. Let's make the meeting last until midnight!

Everyone who cares about education in Seattle should come to this public hearing. You can't get a real picture of the potential impacts of this closure plan without listening to people from the affected schools speak.
