Dear Wake County Commissioners,
A tremendous thank you for your past support and hard work supporting and advocating for our public schools.
Yesterday the Wake PTA Council Board of Directors adopted a resolution supporting full funding of the WCPSS Board of Education Budget Request. The strength of our public schools is essential to the vitality of our county as a whole.
We believe that the BOE budget request helps us make progress towards closing loss of funding that has occurred since the recession. While most additional funding will go to support growth and legislative impact, modest funding will support program enhancement and continuity necessary to make our schools competitive and effective.
We encourage all of you to continue your strong support for our schools by meeting the WCPSS BOE budget request. Please find attached a copy of our resolution. Members of our board will also attend the hearings on Monday to speak to our support for full funding.
We thank you all for your advocacy and for your support of all of our students, teachers, and schools.
