An enormous amount of thought and effort went into preparing every single line this year’s Operating Budget proposal. It is a carefully crafted plan for continuing the successes already seen in the last three years:
- more graduates
- fewer dropouts
- higher standards
- greater achievement
- classes more rigorous than ever before
To vote against fully funding our schools is to slow the forward momentum created under the reforms of MNPS Achieves.
So how can we ensure receiving our full budget request of $720 million?
You are the answer.
We’ve already asked you to contact Council Members to urge support of the Mayor’s budget and property tax proposals. Now we’re asking you to come show your support in person.
Tuesday, June 5, the Council will discuss these proposals and vote on them, the second of three required votes. We want Metro Schools supporters there in force to show Council Members how much we care about our students, our schools, and the future of public education in Nashville.
We’ll all be wearing blue to show our support. All are welcome to join.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 5, 6:30pm
(Come early to be sure you can find parking and arrive before the meeting starts.)
WHERE: Council Chamber, Metro Courthouse
WHO: Everyone who cares about public education. Please wear blue as a visual symbol of your support.
