PUBLIC SCHOOLS' EPIC PROBLEM

Public School Funding

Is largely made up of local property tax revenue. If local properties are undervalued, then schools are underfunded.

Underfunded Schools

Have to cut back on educational services including extracurricular and enrichment activities.

Reduced Educational Services

Create a higher likelihood of students in low-tax areas receiving a lower-quality education with fewer extracurricular activities.

Students Are Less Competitive

For both college admissions and the workforce when they have not had the opportunity to receive a well-rounded education.

OUR EPIC SOLUTION

Step One:

Recruit members for our EPIC Communities Program who own residential real estate in the US that is valued at less than the state average in order to raise property values in a responsible manner for existing residents.

Step Two:

Conduct monthly grant-writing and ongoing fundraising in order to get the financial support and supplies needed to conduct repairs and upgrades for our EPIC Communities Program members' homes and their communities.

Step Three:

Cover the cost of repairs and replacements of roofs, windows, siding, and doors in addition to repointing, tuckpointing, and landscaping for our EPIC Communities Program members.

Step Four:

Beautify neighborhoods by renovating, selling, leasing, and renting vacant residences, upgrading public landscaping, removing trash, helping to assure private lawns are manicured, and removing snow as appropriate.
