Participatory Budget Voting Deadline, Sunday, April 15

Dear TAG Parents,

 

TAG needs you to vote online by Sunday, April 15 to help the school get $100,000 for technology upgrades. 

 

TAG submitted a technology upgrade project proposal for funding to the District 8 City Council and it was chosen for participatory budgeting. This means that it is 1 of 10 project proposals that the community can vote on to get funded. Projects that receive the most votes get funded.

 

Last year, TAG received $100,000 for technology through this voting process, so I know we can do it again this year!

 

Voting is simpler this year (takes less than 2 minutes) and here is how you do it.

·        Click  here or go to https://vote.d21.me/vote/VkrzoKAIV?locale=en

·         Enter your phone number to get an access code to vote, then follow instructions.

·        Select the 6th project, “Technology Upgrades for Three East Harlem Schools”. TAG will split $350,000 with two other schools if the project is funded.

·        After selecting, scroll down and press “Continue”

·        Make sure you complete the process until your vote is submitted.

To vote, you must be at least 11 years old or at least in 6th Grade and live in district 8.

 

Thanks,
