MEET DISTRICT 4 SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES
The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce is hosting a forum at 7 pm on Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts Crest Theatre featuring School Board district 4 run-off candidates Tom Sutterfield and Erica Whitfield. District 4 includes the eastern, western and southern portions of Delray Beach.
NOVEMBER 4 TAX LEVY REFERENDUM
The November 4 general election ballot will include a countywide referendum to authorize the continuation of the existing property tax levy that funds arts, PE and choice programs, including career academies and the IB program at Atlantic. The school district referendum information page has detailed information about the referendum, including a school-by-school list showing how many students are affected by the funding, and a 2014 expenditure report.
The school and the district are doing all they can to ensure that students have the textbooks and other instructional materials that they need.
However, because funds allocated by the legislature were insufficient, the district is about $3.5 million short of the amount needed to purchase newly adopted materials. School district officials have renegotiated several large orders and have been able to acquire funds to order required materials, and they have met with local legislators who serve on the appropriations committee to discuss the dilemma the district is facing.
As the school receives more information on the status of textbook orders we will share it with you.
SEPT. 23 UPDATE: Parents who are concerned about classes that have not been provided textbooks are encouraged to contact Bill Purtell at the school district (email@example.com or 684-5145).
