There are MANY opportunities to prevent Jeffco’s drastic budget cuts, but time is running out. Helping 3A & 3B to pass will save school libraries & also help all of Jeffco Schools – buildings, programs, positions, and especially students!
How many of these activities have you participated in? Don’t look back and wish you would have done more.
Hold a Street Sign for 1 Hour
Despite all the 3A-3B publicity you may have seen, most Jeffco voters don’t even know about it at all. At a moderately busy intersection, you can reach over 4,000 voters in just 1 hour by simply holding a sign and waving. The teacher-librarian group is running this event called “40,000 Votes“. Watch the 3 minute video and donate your 1 hour!

Walk the Neighborhood
Extensive research has been done to determine exact addresses of voters who are likely to say yes to 3A & 3B. These potential voters will say yes if they simply see you and receive a special handout. All you have to do is sign up here to walk and deliver the handouts. If all the prepared packets are delivered, it is a GUARANTEE that 3A & 3B will pass. The last event is at Drake Middle School (12550 West 52nd Ave) at 9:00 AM on Saturday, October 13. Please sign up and bring your walking shoes!

Get on the Campaign Mailing List
This is where you will receive critical email updates. Look for the signup form on the right side of the page.
Spend a few minutes watching the short videos and reading the info on the front, main campaign page – www.SupportJeffcoSchools.com. They have done a great job summarizing the most important information. It’s much easier to educate others once you know the important things yourself.
Get Involved with Great Ed Colorado
Great Education Colorado is spearheading the “Year of the Student” project to address the embarrassing state wide funding situation. Half of Jeffco’s income comes from the state and Colorado is at the very bottom compared to the country.
Help with Phone Banking
Most of our voters are seniors and use traditional phones heavily. A rented facility is available on various dates and times, with phones provided. Just as in the neighborhood walks, a researched list of likely voters is prepared. All you have to do is show up to the phone bank location, follow the suggested script, and inform the voter about 3A-3B – EASY. Click here to sign up.
Display a Car Sign
This is easy and FREE! All Jeffco employees are allowed to have this sign attached to their car in the school parking lot! Download the sign here, print it, and tape it to your inside back windows.
Get a Yard Sign
8,000 signs have already been distributed and are hard to find. You can always print a small one and put it in your home window.
Buy & Wear a 3A-3B T-shirt
Look for the “Buy Now” button on the right side of the page. Once you get it, wear it often, especially to big events.

Attend School Board Meetings
It’s very important that well respected educators & parents attend school board meetings. There are a few outspoken anti-education people (known as ‘the crazies’) who attend these meetings. They use bullying techniques and are often very loud and display inappropriate behavior. Your attendance & voice can help to level their negativity and damaging actions.
