“We want to hear from you,” said Deputy State Treasurer Joyce Parker, committee chairperson. “The Benton Harbor community has a voice at our table. Please don’t wait. Take the survey today!”

The survey can be reached electronically at Individuals can complete a paper version of the survey at all upcoming community outreach events or committee meetings.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding agreed to by the Benton Harbor Area Schools board, Michigan Department of Education and Michigan Department of Treasury, residents can expect the committee to engage with community members and review enrollment, academic programs, capital needs and other issues as members work openly and transparently.
