You are invited to attend an upcoming town hall meeting in the Grady Elementary cafeteria on Wednesday, September 26th from 7-9pm. Superintendent Jeff Eakins will talk about the education referendum and the impact it will have on our schools and our community.

Right now, because of inadequate state funding, our students face a future in aging, crowded schools and our community faces a $2 billion challenge. The half-penny sales tax education referendum on the November 6 ballot would generate approximately $131 million per year for ten years that would be spent on specific projects to improve our public schools.

Each meeting will provide families, employees and community members the opportunity to get your questions about the referendum answered — straight from Superintendent Eakins. For more information, please click on Town Hall Meetings.

Please attend this important event and feel free to invite friends/family in Hillsborough County.

Please note, PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy organization in the country.  It is our duty to advocate for the needs of our children, including and especially funding for our schools.  Public education advocacy is a nonpartisan issue.  PTA does not support any specific candidates or political parties.
