  If you’ve ever wanted to get more involved with the school district but weren’t sure how to fit it into your schedule, Superintendent Lolli Haws has a great opportunity for you. Haws is asking for interested community members to serve on an advisory council to talk about issues affecting the district and “directly support District leaders in accomplishing important goals outlined in the District’s three-year Raising Racine plan to improve the educational experience for students and families in RUSD.” Volunteers interested in serving on the council are asked to fill out a quick form by Friday. Here’s the full notice from RUSD:
