Champaign Unit 4 School District is partnering with the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation to implement a series of Twitter chats on various topics relevant to the school district and Champaign County.

The first #AskUnit4 Twitter chat will take place on Friday, February 15, 2013 from 2-4 pm on Twitter. The first hour will be dedicated to questions about the Future Facilities Process ( where participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. Participants will also be encouraged to also take an online questionnaire to offer their input on the District’s school facilities options. The second hour will be solely a Q&A opportunity for all those participating to ask questions to Champaign Unit 4.

“We are excited to partner with the EDC on our first Twitter chat,” said Stephanie Stuart, Community Relations Coordinator for Champaign Unit 4. “Parents, students, and community members here in Champaign are talking about the things that matter most to them on Twitter. We hope this is the first of many opportunities to have an open dialogue with the community using this platform.”

Stuart and Carly McCrory, Communications Director for the Champaign County EDC, will both moderate the chat and various representatives from the Unit 4 School District will be on hand to answer questions.

All community members are invited to participate in the chat. To participate, log in to Twitter and search for hashtag #AskUnit4. To be included in the chat, the hashtag must be included in your tweets.
