Support Jeffco Kids: New Group to Educate Citizens on School Board Actions

The new conservative members of the Jefferson County School Board have created such a stir (and not in a good way) that a group of parents and community leaders has formed a new organization to keep the public informed about the Board's actions. From the Denver Post:

Its mission is to "communicate to the community to let them know what is going on," group co-founder Shawna Fritzler said.

Fritzler, a Republican, was an active supporter of the 2012 campaign for measures 3A and 3B (bond and mill levy requests for Jeffco Public Schools that passed), is a legislative and advocacy co-chair for Jeffco PTA, co-chair of the board's strategic planning and advisory council and on its choice enrollment steering committee…

Support Jeffco Kids is registered as a 501(c)4 nonprofit and its website solicits donations. Fritzler said it has raised $6,000 so far to go toward website operating costs and attorney fees.

The organization plans to host community meetings and send out e-mail updates, Fritzler said. A post in its Facebook page, facebook.com/SupportJeffcoKids, asks for donations to help send mailers to "all of Jeffco."
