If your local government has its own Board of Education, consider a joint proclamation between Council and the Board. If your local government elects a trustee or trustees to a regional Board of Education, a joint proclamation can also work.

As the 3rd week of May is also Public Works Awareness Week, you may want to submit a proclamation for this week too.
