MOMENTUM BUILDING TO SUPPORT PUBLIC SCHOOLS
With the recent article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch more and more citizens are learning about the concerns raised by employees of the Chesterfield County Public Schools. Individuals shared their stories of how increasing class size and reducing resources are impacting quality instruction.
Concerned citizens, business owners, faith leaders, along with parents and students, can join the chorus and let the members of the BOS understand that additional funding support is required. Contact members of the BOS and let them know that you will support their move to advertise an increase in the property tax rate.
Decisions are made by those who show up!
