2. Ask your members to have their students perform at the BOE meeting.
This idea came to us from another state, where at least one local asks members to have their students perform during the BOE meeting. Such a performance could take place near the beginning of the meeting. A school's band, orchestra, jazz ensemble, drama club, color guard, step team, etc. could start the meeting with something exciting. This initiative would draw parents to the meetings, some of which may stay following the performance. The students would also appreciate this opportunity to perform. Your local could use the PRIDE program to fund refreshments for the community.
