Kicking off 2011 budgets


The CMS school board will meet today at 2PM instead of its regular meeting time. This meeting is an important one. The Superintendent will outline possible budget cuts.

Over the next few months, the local and state governments will be making decisions about budget priorities. Kids Voting Mecklenburg will help you to better understand this process, with resources about what the governments do, the people who are in charge, the roles of citizens and leaders and how to get involved. We will also give you an opportunity to weigh in on the budget priorities being decided  - if you were in charge, where would you put your budget dollars?

Let us know what you are interested in learning and how we can help!
