Fill the room!
Attend the County Commissioners vote on the budget Monday, June 22nd at 7pm! We need a HUGE turnout to fill the room with RED FOR ED and let them know they need to fully fund our schools.
Our public school students and teachers need your help! People’s Alliance is calling for the County Commissioners to approve the budget request from the Durham Board of Education which proposes an increase in the DPS school budget to: 1) Fund School Growth, 2) Save 33 teaching positions, 3) Provide a 3% raise to classified employees, and 4) Increase salary supplements for experienced teachers.
Important notes on this budget:
- Funding from the County last year was flat with no increase. We are asking for an increase over last year of $7,690,000.
- Without funding, we will lose 33 teaching positions and be forced to make other tough choices in our already stretched school budgets.
- This budget includes massive cuts proposed by DPS in the Central Office and services and operations (66 positions and $7+ million in supplies & materials).
