March 14, 2016

Kentucky Education Action Team (KEAT)
Weekly Budget Messages:
SECOND KEAT ACTION ALERT

For three weeks the Kentucky PTA is sending its members messages regarding the Governor’s proposed education budget cuts. Each week we will focus on a different program that if cut will directly affect our students’ education.

Here is a template letter for the second week’s budget cut: funding for preschools. We are asking that you send this letter to your Senate or House Representative.

  • Feel free to add your own personal experience with each program and more information about how you feel it benefits the state and our children.
  • If you do ask for a response, please make sure to include your email address, phone number, address and/or other contact information.
  • Please share any responses you receive from legislators with Sharon Whitworth, Kentucky PTA Legislative Commissioner at swhitwo1@aol.com .

It is vital that we reach out to our legislatures at this crucial time. We appreciate all that you do for the children of Kentucky.

2015-16 PLC Rounds Information

JCPS is inviting community, corporate and parent partners into several schools throughout the school year to observe teachers in action. Participants will get a chance to interact with the principal as well as observe a team of teachers actively engaged in the PLC model. Teachers are working together to problem solve and strategize how they can best serve the individual needs of the students they teach. I have attached a personal invitation from Dr. Hargens inviting our parents to these sessions. Although times are during the day, which may be difficult for working parents, we do have a variety of times that may fit well into a lunch hour or a visit before they go into work. Parents are welcome to attend as many sessions as they would like. For additional information please contact Melissa Barman at (502) 485-3834.
