Hillsborough County School Board Meeting - Dec. 18, 2013 @ 2 PM
Raymond O. Shelton School Administration Center
901 East Kennedy Blvd
Tampa, Fl 33602
In Hillsborough County the public school district is entrusted with a $2.8 billion budget that directly impacts 200,000 students, 30,000 employees and hundreds of vendors and service providers.
A seven member board of elected officials are tasked with overseeing these dollars and providing oversight.
Ultimately, however,it falls upon the citizenry to monitor the conduct and expenditures of public dollars and the quality of education being provided to children.
Recent reports of special-needs children being abused and, in some instances, even dying under the care of the district have been featured prominently in our local media and underscores the need for parents, family members and all stakeholders to actively participate in the educational process.
Please consider attending this school board meeting to add your voice to the call for an independent investigation into the manner in which the school district is caring for children in Hillsborough County and for fiscal transparency and accountability.
