EETT money

Subject: EETT money
Sent: Monday, February 21, 2005 6:38:11 AM EST

We have received several letters from LEAs who have already contacted
key legislators about the possible loss of all EETT money. These are
making a huge impact in Washington. But the fight is not over yet. There
is still much to be done before the EETT money is restored to even
a fraction of its original amount.

In a meeting we had last week in DC, it was mentioned that
Congressional staffers are logging each letter and phone call. They do
not believe that they are logging the e-mails, however. They also
reiterated that snail-mail letters are not effective because it takes up
to 3 months for them to get through security measures.
Thus, please get as many as possible of your parents, teachers,
principals, and central office staff to fax letters to your
representatives. We have their attention. Please don't wait!

All e-mail correspondence to and from this address is subject to the
North Carolina Public Records Law, which may result in monitoring and
disclosure to third parties, including law enforcement.
