Tuesday May 3d the county has a special education millage on the ballot.
It's the only thing on the ballot, and it's critical that it passes.
It will support special education services in all of our county districts--and since special education services are mandated and have to be supported whether funded or not--we also support general education by voting yes. All of the funds will stay local.
Students up to age 26 are eligible to receive special education services. Your YES vote means public schools in Washtenaw County can support the 6,500 students who count on these services without eliminating programs that benefit ALL students.
Unfortunately, the Washtenaw County Republican Party voted to oppose this millage.
Please don't let the "No" votes win.
For several of our districts, it is the difference between deficit budgets and break-even budgets.

Support our schools--join me in voting yes!
