We all know that the key to a great school year is a great teacher. This year we've got an easy, meaningful and lasting way to honor the ones who have made a difference for your student(s).
Colorado's teachers are among the lowest paid in the country. They face growing class sizes and have to take on the roles of counselors and nurses, because those positions have been eliminated or reduced as a result of state funding shortfalls.
Colorado PTA has joined a broad, statewide effort to put a measure on the statewide ballot to increase funding for all public schools – including yours. With those new revenues, districts can reverse cuts and invest more in our teachers and students. The first step is gathering signatures to qualify the Great Schools, Thriving Communities initiative for the November 2018 ballot.
