Parents and guardians: Get out and vote!
1. Before you vote, check out the charter petitions on each school's Web site. Charter petitions can be found on each home page.
Morgan County Primary School: morgan.k12.ga.us/mcps/
Morgan County Elementary School: morgan.k12.ga.us/mces/
Morgan County Middle School: morgan.k12.ga.us/mcms/
2. Prepare your questions.
3. Come to one of the three schools on Thursday, Oct. 21 at 9 a.m. OR 6 p.m. (voting doesn't last throughout the day, just at these times), ask your questions (administration will be available), and cast your ballot. If you have students at more than one of these schools, there will be ballots for all three schools available at each of the schools; you don't have to go to separate schools to vote!
"If you want the school to be as successful as it has been the past five years, the charter played a role in that success," MCPS Principal Dr. Betsy Short said.
