PUBLIC HEARING TONIGHT at Board of Education @ 7pm for Mt. Hebron community, including feeders, to provide oral testimony in response to Superintendent Martirano’s Recommended Redistricting Plan. The Mt. Hebron High School PTSA will be providing testimony with a team of four parents. We are numbers 31-34 in the order of speakers. Find a copy of the testimony by scrolling down the blogs to Sept. 9.
1. WHERE TO GO: The BOE is located at 10910 Clarksville Pike (rte 108). Only those who registered to speak will be allowed in the BOE boardroom. Spectators will be directed to satellite locations in the neighboring Homewood School and Applied Research Lab (ARL) buildings. There will be a lot of security on site to direct folks to a viewing spot. It might be a good idea to come early, carpool, or get dropped off/picked up.

3. HOW TO PARTICIPATE: BOE said that when a speaker/group is introduced to give testimony, staff in the satellite locations will ask for supporters of that speaker/group to stand and be counted. The PTSA speakers will be wearing Mt. Hebron spirit wear – you can too.
