Partnership With Our Schools
Our schools are perhaps the community's greatest asset. Schools provide the bedrock for our children's futures, and represent as a homeowner, much of our value.

The school problem is not just a city or school district problem, it is a community problem. Our school leaders, City Council, corporate partners, and residents must unite to solve the problem facing school repairs.
