“Reasons for belonging to TACS:
1. Recently the Quinlan newspaper shut down. Twice since that time, my district has been featured in the TACS Today magazine. I cannot tell you the amount of pride my school board and community feel when we are recognized in a state-wide publication for school districts. Thank you for displaying the ‘bright spots’ in public education.
2. The communication from TACS is the best. I can always rely on up-to-date information to help me make informed decisions for my district. Keep up the good work!”
