Despite Granville’s reputation as a center of educational excellence, the district’s last levy passed by only a small margin. If you support our local schools, you have to vote for them! Please join us at the polls on May 8th to reaffirm your support for our strong Granville schools.

 

 

 

Host a group discussion.

The success of this campaign will rest largely on our ability to drum up grassroots support. Small group discussions are an excellent way to communicate the critical nature of this levy and to answer questions or concerns. School officials are available to attend discussions to answer questions. Contact us to learn more, or for immediate questions, see below:

Time slots are booking up as Election Day approaches, so we’re encouraging folks to get on the schedule today!
— Aimee Parsley-White, Granville ACES Volunteer

Who do I invite? 

Invite friends, neighbors, or co-workers who might be especially interested in the levy, who have questions, or who are interested in learning more. We recommend a group of 15-20 to spark and encourage discussion and debate. 

Who from the school district attends?

Either Jeff Brown (Superintendent) or Mike Sobul (District Treasurer) will come to the discussion, share details of the levy, and then allow time for everyone to ask questions. 

How long should I plan for?

Forty-five to sixty minutes is best depending on the number of guests to ensure everyone gets to ask their questions.

How do I schedule a time?
