Show up and Speak Out at the August Sarasota School Board Meeting

S.O.S. SAVE OUR SCHOOLS – LET’S FILL THE ROOM! 

CONTINUE TO SHOW UP,  SHOW SOLIDARITY and SPEAK OUT WITH RESPECT at the next Sarasota School Board Meeting on Tuesday August 3rd  at 6 pm at the  Sarasota County School Board Chamber – 1980 Landings Blvd.  

WE SEEK SPEAKERS who’ll offer public comments in a calm, direct and respectful way – and if provoked, will not engage.

IF YOU PLAN TO SPEAK, arrive no later than 5:30 pm & do not get in line – find security staff passing out public commentary cards.

Let’s help our School Board address the real issues facing Sarasota Schools:

  • Safety of our staff & students under the age of 12 who are not eligible for COVID vaccines.

  • Declining Florida state revenue for schools

  • Increasing number of vouchers to private schools

  • Stagnating achievement gap, particularly affecting children of color

IF YOU CAN’T ATTEND, up to one hour before the meeting, email your comments to be included in the public record to: PublicComment@sarasotacountyschools.net
