School Board Funding – A call for help!

If there are any Okaloosa Patriots out there who are current or former educators concerned about excessive spending by the School Board, we can use your help.

Jim Solberg and I have been reviewing the county budget and regulations concerning the School Board.  Many people are not aware that the School Board does not fall under the Board of County Commissioners.

The school board will most likely be pushing for a 1 cent sales tax increase.  At the same time Sen. Don Gaetz has introduced a revision proposal to the State Constitution regarding creation of flexible class sizes.

Further, the School Board is participating in the “Race to the Top” program announced in July by President Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

If you have time, passion, or knowledge to help us review a significant portion of our local tax dollars, please contact me.   The budget process for 2011 will start in March.
