Building on Victory – Next for CAST


Join with CAST to raise school finance reform to top of the agenda!

The referendum passed – thanks to all for your support and hard work! Now it’s time to turn our energy to school finance reform!

Without changes in the way Wisconsin finances schools, Madison and other districts will face a future of continued budget cuts and divisive referendum battles. Our local state legislators supported the referendum and support fair funding for schools. We need them to put school finance reform on the top of their agenda for the next state budget.

Please join CAST on Wednesday, Dec. 3rd 6:30pm at Hawthorne Library and help plan an event at the State Capitol in early January to meet our legislators and ask for their leadership.

Let’s plan a creative and constructive action that involves everybody– kids, parents, educators, grandparents. Bring your ideas!

Hawthorne Library is located at 2707 E. Washington Ave., 246-4548, See for this link for directions.

If you have questions or cannot join us on Dec. 3rd, but have an idea or want to be part of the event in January, please contact Jill Jacklitz at
