Citizens 4 Education is a grass roots community effort to help ensure a quality education in the RE-1 schools by asking for a Mill Levy increase. RE-1 is the lowest funded district in the region in one of the lowest funded states in the country. The crisis is real, and the consequences of a failed Mill Levy Override will be significant.

The 4 main objectives of C4E

The 4 main objectives of C4E

Through direct accountability and oversight of the spending of Mill Levy Funds:

We will attract and retain highly qualified teachers and staff, which not only would ensure continued quality educational opportunities for the kids, but also have a major impact on maintaining classroom sizes, a high priority for the teachers.

We will prevent the further reduction or cuts to music, arts, sports and other programs in the district

We will maintain and upgrade the technology required for the students and the district to remain competitive in an ever growing technology focused marketplace.

We will replace and repair older buses and school vehicles to ensure the highest safety and function for both the drivers and kids.
