PORT BYRON, IL – To gather feedback from the community on issues in education, state Rep. Mike Smiddy (D-Hillsdale) is hosting an education forum on Saturday, May 11 at 10 a.m. at West Carroll Primary School, located at 2215 Wacker Rd. in Savanna.

“As I continue to work in the state legislature to improve the quality of education, it is important that I come home and listen to local residents and educators on these issues,” said Smiddy. “Understanding the concerns of this community and collaborating on innovative for education reform will help me make the best decisions on behalf our students and educators.”

At this forum, which is free and open to the public, members of the community will have the opportunity to share their concerns and ideas for education policy with Smiddy. Residents are also encouraged to join Smiddy’s Education Citizens Advisory Committee to more frequently meet with him and share ideas on education.
