This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.

Voter Registration Deadline May 13

Beverly's Proposition 2½ override could lose by only one vote! That was the difference in a recent override vote in Abington. Yes! For Beverly is urging everyone who supports the override to get out and vote. If your aren't registered, it is critical to register now because the deadline is May 13. Please encourage everyone you know to register. Sometimes, it only takes one extra vote to win!

You can fill out a registration form at Beverly City Hall or the Registry on Cabot Street.
