The Marion County School Board has some tough decisions to make this year, but it's time they also focus on the big picture. Our students, teachers, and community can't afford more cuts, layoffs, furloughs, and permanent substitutes year after year.
Now is the time for our school board to show serious leadership and work for a long-term solution that increases our community's investment in our students. Sign the petition to the school board below, and then urge your friends and family to sign too.
We urge you, as the Marion County School Board, to develop a long-term plan that increases our community's investment in our students, our teachers, and our schools.
Our community deserves better than year after year of cuts, layoffs, furloughs, and permanent substitutes. These actions have damaged the quality of education our students receive. It's time we have a school budget that puts the needs of our students first.
