Want a detailed how-to on filling out a witness slip? Go here. And in case you need it, here's a list of the top ten reasons we need an elected school board from our sister-org Raise Your Hand.

Update: There are two amendments on this bill. Amendment One is to have a 2023 start date. We are neutral on that amendment. Amendment Two is to have the elected board expire in after two terms unless the IL General Assembly renews it by 2029. We oppose that amendment.
