- Call your supervisors. Again. Email them. Send them letters. All contact info is here.
- Ask your supervisors to meet with you and a constituent group (PTA, HOA, Soccer team, etc.).
- Contact an influential person you know (Loudoun Chamber of Commerce's Tony Howard? Telos' John Wood? Redskins' Robert Griffin III?). Ask them to lobby your supervisor to consider increasing the schools budget.
- Call your friends to gather for coffee or drinks. Come up with more ideas.

Well, that didn't work...now what?
It's disappointing to say the least that the Board of Supervisors completely ignored the Superintendent, the School Board, the LCPS employees, and most of all, their constituents (us) these past 6 months. It's likely that this funding amount is set, but here are some ideas for a continued grass roots reaction. Of course, there's only 12 days until the budget is officially finalized on April 2. Send any more ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on Facebook or Twitter or in the comments below. Let's try to add to the list.
