To kick off 2022, we had our first membership meeting over Zoom on Tuesday, January 18th, 2022. Take a moment to review what happened at our meeting.

Northshore School District Bond & Levies Presentation

Our guest presenters were representatives from Northshore School District. Information was presented about the three funding measures which are on the February 8th, 2022 ballot. Voters in the Northshore School District will have an opportunity to vote on an Educational Programs and Operations Levy, Technology Levy, and a Capital Projects Bond.
