HELP US WIN $30 MILLION MORE FOR HEALTHY SCHOOLS THIS FALL!
The School District has an unplanned balance of $46 million, and alongside Councilperson Helen Gym and allies we are calling the Board of Education to demand that extra money is invested in healing our toxic school building conditions.
After demonstrating our growing people power all year —through community meetings, packing the school board and city council, and presenting our #HealOurSchools petition with over 3,300 PFT and community signatures— political leaders are taking notice that our students need safe and healthy buildings NOW. This year alone we have won more state funding for lead abatement, more money for air conditioners, and now we have the opportunity to win an additional $30 million for building conditions. Thank you Councilperson Gym for lifting up this opportunity- now let’s call the Board of Education and make it happen! #WhenWeFightWeWin
We are asking ALL educators, parents, community members, and allies in the fight for public education to call the Board of Education at 215-400-4010! Call this week, and tweet @PHLschoolboard to put the pressure on district leadership to continue the work of ending the toxic school conditions in our buildings. #HealOurSchools #FundOurSchools #EndTheLead
