In advance of the November 8 election, Champaign Unit 4 School District—in partnership with the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and Chambanamoms.com—will host a live Facebook Q&A on the school facilities referendum next Monday, October 17. The hour-long broadcast will take place on the Unit 4 Facebook page starting at 8:30 p.m. Community members will have the opportunity to gather information and ask questions about the school facilities referendum that will impact six of the District’s campuses.

Board of Education Vice President Amy Armstrong and Member Kathy Richards will host the chat and take questions from participants. Chambanamoms.com and the EDC will help to facilitate the discussion.

“This interactive format allows for that immediate access to our school board members who have been working to formulate this plan for our community,” said Stephanie Stuart, Director of Communications & Community Relations. “The EDC has been part of the intensive planning process that took place over the past year and this organization actively works to attract new business and jobs to our community. Chambanamoms.com represents the voice of parents in our community and is invaluable resource to families. Our partnership for this chat is a natural one and we look forward to the discussion about this issue.”

All community members are invited to tune into the broadcast and submit questions. Questions may also be submitted in advance by commenting on a designated thread on the Unit 4 Facebook page.
