Here are just a few things to get you started, and keep you going as you help Jeffco Exodus connect with more and more Jeffco residents:
First, start an email distribution list for your community! Go through your contacts and develop one! Please get in touch w/a trusted teacher at your school who is willing to coordinate with and distribute information to teachers and staff in your school(s) - ask for that teacher's PERSONAL email, and ask them only to share information using others' personal emails. No district emails, please.
Help us build our network, one for every school in Jeffco (neighborhood, charter, option), quickly.
Consider renting a table (just $10) at an upcoming school or community event, such as conferences, a concert, science fair, festival, etc. Ask other parents to help you hand out key information during that event. We can provide materials and instructions for renting a table.
Consider setting up a table or tent at your local Jeffco library and passing out key information. If you're interested, we can provide materials and instructions.
Consider developing a phone tree in your community as another way to disseminate information and also involve more parents and teachers.
Research candidates running for office in November; you can make a difference with your votes! Learn which candidates support the issues that matter to you - which candidates support public education, for example? We have a list of candidates we are supporting and would be happy to share that with you at your request.
Attend Jeffco school board meetings in-person or via live feed!
Look for our weekly emails with updated information you can forward directly to your communications network.
Ask those in your network to forward the information you send on to their own networks. Remember, 70% of Jeffco voters do not have a connection to our schools. But what's happening in Jeffco affects us all. We need to make sure everyone is aware of the issues and understands why we have concerns.
