Call to Action

Without additional funding support from the Board of Supervisors, CCPS cannot fund reduced class size, material resources and any meaningful increase in your take home pay.  The minimal increases we see “on paper” vanish with increasing health care premiums and contributions to VRS.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR YOU
TO SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Contact members of the BOS and share your story.  Let them know how reductions in funding support have hurt your classroom and your family. Do you work a second or third job?  Are the ever increasing demands draining you of energy to do your best work? Are you considering leaving the profession you love?  Tell them your story! Text, e-mail, phone call! 

Tell each BOS member that you need him/her to support advertising a tax rate of no less than 98 cents.  A three cent increase in the current rate could generate over $9 million in additional funding.

Reach out to your friends and community contacts and ask them to make contacts with the BOS as well.  Use your social networks, personal e-mail lists and relationships with parents and business leaders. Help them understand how the continuing reductions in funding are negatively impacting your classroom and your ability to be fully committed to the CCPS community.

THE TIME FOR SILENT, CLOSED-DOOR, COMPLAINING IS OVER.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
