Citizens of Montana – MAPS: "Media Arts in the Public Schools" Would Appreciate Your Support.

Dear Friends,

As you know, we’re hoping to expand statewide in 2007.
The current plan is five new schools in ’07, five in ’08,
five in ’09 etc.

The budget for three years is estimated at $1,950,000 or $65,000
per school district. Note: The projected budget presumes that a
new school school does not have equipment nor personnel. If that
is not the case, our costs will be reduced considerably.

To achieve the above, we are forming a public/private partnership.
Our federal and state representatives are introducing public
funding measures which, if passed, will be matched by private funds
raised by our foundation.

There is, however, another way to secure public funds and
thus the reason we’re asking for your help. If Governor
Schweitzer included MAPS in his budget, the process will
be much more efficient and more likely to succeed.

Thus, if you agree that expansion would be a good thing,
please write Governor Schweitzer and encourage him to
support the effort. FYI – he’s already a fan.
