PTO Meeting Tuesday: Venue Changed

posted Jun 5, 2017, 9:50 AM by Sarah Mates

Hi folks!

The Hillside PTO's Board of Directors has changed the venue for Tuesday night's meeting. We will attend the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BMA) meeting instead.  This will take place at City Hall at 7:00.  The BMA will be voting on whether or not to allocate $165m, $167m or $170m to our schools.

An allocation of $167m would mean the return (after a 5-year absence) of world languages to our middle schools and the addition of health.  This sum would also include the addition of several needed positions at the elementary level.

By city charter the budget must be finalized by the second Tuesday in June (June 13), which would make tomorrow night's session the last one for your input.  Public comment (3 minutes each) will begin at 7:00 p.m. The PTO Board of Directors encourages you to attend and speak to your wishes, concerns, etc.

Thank you.
