I'm delighted you have joined Location19 and look forward to working with you on school issues. This site's mission is,"Location19 strives to bring SW Quadrant residents together.

Not only are there many discussions in the main Forum but most of the 69 groups have Discussion Forums of their own. Fore instance theSW Education Forumgroup is very active and I urge you to Join the group by clicking on the group SW Education Forum to get to it's page then clicking on the + Join SW Education Forum button next to your name under the header image. We use this group to document the activities we are involved in while fighting to improve our schools. In the Pages box under the Members box you will find some important links. The SWCC Education Committee Minutes Index will help you easily find Minutes from any of the SWCC Education Committee meetings. All these minutes are in the group's Discussion Forum but they are interspersed with other discussion posts. The index presents links to them in reverse chronological order. Open the link to the August 5, 2013 meeting and check out the video of your teachers talking passionately about their school.
