PS #5 Email Campaign #6: JCPS is Not Fully Funded...City Must Help #FundOurSchools

The PTA Advocacy Team at Dr. Michael Conti PS #5 School created this email campaign to keep the pressure on school officials, City Council, and Mayor Fulop as they determine next year's budget in the lead-up to the Monday August 5th City Council meeting.   I am sharing on CivicParent to help spread the word & the advocacy.

We need our City leadership to ensure our schools receive full funding both in the short-term and longer-term. We are asking all concerned parents and residents who care about this issue to engage elected leadership by sending an email demanding funding for the public schools.

How to use the email template below. The form below contains an email written by the PS #5 PTA Advocacy team. You can edit the email if you want. This form will automatically send an email from you to the City Council, their aides, and Mayor Fulop. Superintendent Walker and the Board of Education trustees will be copied. 

If you don't want to send to all of those individuals at once: you can copy/paste the note below into your email and send to a subset of representatives. If you don't know your city ward and/or representative - use the map below to find out! All the city officials' and BOE trustees' contact information is provided at the bottom of this page for your reference.

Advocate in the manner you feel most comfortable.
