Looking for 2 Parent Volunteers for Selection Committee!

15th District PTA is looking for 2 parent volunteers to be on the Selection Committee of the Racial Equity Policy.  The selection committee will be responsible for developing and conducting an application process to establish the membership of the Advisory Council for the Equity and Race Advisory Council.  This will be a short-term commitment but a highly important one.  The meeting times are not scheduled as of yet and the two parents chosen will need to meet with the other 8 other members – so a flexible schedule is advised.  Meetings will start in June.

15th District PTA Stand on Possible State Takeover

15th District Parent Teacher Association (PTA) believes that every voice should be heard when we talk about education. We also believe that the strongest voices are the ones who are directly involved in the education process: teachers, administrators, students, and parents. These voices are being threatened with a takeover by the state of Kentucky. When the audit began, it was clear that changes were needed at Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), but since that time significant changes have occurred. JCPS has shown it is willing to make changes that will improve our school system. A state takeover would not only hurt the momentum of these changes within the district but also silence the input of community stakeholders. 15th District PTA supports JCPS and stands united with JCPS against a state takeover.
