Legislative VP Update
PTA day at the capital: PTA gave a check for $39,000,000 – to represent PTA Volunteer hours
PTA is in favor of adding a question to ballots in November asking voters if they would allow
funding for children and disabilities come out of the education funding instead of general fund.
The education fund has more money than the general fund.
