Joel and Lisa Wicoff want USD 257 patrons to chime in with ideas on how to cut costs for the 2010-11 school year. They have reserved a room at Pizza Hut for public discussion starting at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The district faces cuts of about $900,000 if the Legislature does nothing this session to enhance state aid.
“We thought it would be good to get together and come up with some thoughts, maybe some that haven’t been mentioned,” Joel Wicoff said. “Most of all, we want this to be a positive way to express the importance we place on the education of our kids.”
Those attending will be responsible for their lunch. Lisa Wicoff encouraged people to call her at 365-6232, so the restaurant will know how many to expect.
