Florida Superintendents Call Upon Governor Scott for Veto  

June 2, 2017: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Superintendents Encouraged by Veto of FEFP and Reiterate Call for Veto of HB 7069


May 16, 2017: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Superintendents Call Upon the Governor For Veto

“Florida superintendents cannot support HB 7069 or the budget due to the negative impact on public education,” states FADSS President and Escambia County Superintendent Malcolm Thomas. “The budget fails to meet the basic funding needs of Florida’s nearly 2.8 million public education students, and despite some good education policy in HB 7069 the overall damage to public education far outweighs the good,” adds Thomas. “With a united voice, we call upon the Governor to veto HB 7069 and the FEFP in support of Florida public education,” states Thomas.

______________________________________________________________

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Superintendents Gravely Concerned by Proposed Education Funding
5/4/17

Florida superintendents are gravely concerned about the proposed Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP) funding.  The currently proposed funding levels are not sufficient to meet the basic funding needs of Florida’s 2.8 million public school students and result in a negative budget for many Florida school districts.  

“Considering the overall economic strength of our state, it is alarming that the basic funding needs of Florida public school students could go unaddressed,” states FADSS President and Escambia County Superintendent Malcolm Thomas.  “With a united voice, we call upon Florida legislators to increase the base student funding in support of public education in Florida,” adds Thomas.
