Activation:

These are things you can do as an individual to address school successes and concerns, as well as, QS action items you can take on to support our ability to share information with the community!

 

  • Attend the April Yancey County Commissioners Meeting (4/8 @ 6pm)  to hear what decision they make to support the school’s ability to apply for state grants, make public comment about what you would like to see the Commissioners do to support the school.

  • We need to be going to the YC school on the second Fridays or third Mondays (same day as meeting in the evening) prior to the monthly school board meeting to request information related to first or second reading policies on the Consent Agenda and share with QS to share with the community. 
    • Email us if you can take on this task!
  • We need to contact the YC BOE office each Monday to ask about any Special Meetings happening that week and share with QS to share with the community.
    • Email us if you can take on this task!
  • Top priority continues to be increasing community attendance and engagement at these meetings as the community at large continues to seem largely unaware of the issues happening here.
