PTSA Advocacy Seeks Support for State Funding Proposal

In partnership with the Appomattox Regional Governor’s School, the MLWGS PTSA Advocacy Committee is actively encouraging the Governor, the Secretary of Education, and state lawmakers to support a new funding proposal for full-time Governor’s Schools. If the proposal succeeds, Maggie Walker stands to receive an additional $1,000,000 in annual state funding. 

In order to accomplish this goal for increased state funding, PTSA Advocacy is seeking assistance from the school community. If parents, teachers, students or alumni have contacts with Virginia lawmakers or within the Executive Branch, and would like to support this initiative, please get in touch with the Advocacy Committee now. The committee is currently scheduling one-on-one meetings with representatives to educate them on the funding needs of Maggie Walker and the new funding proposal. A summary of the funding proposal can be found here.

To assist with contacting key legislators or members of the Executive Branch, please email Marianne Macon, MLWGS PTSA Advocacy, at macon4@verizon.net.
