Meeting with parents and state legislators on Thursday May 5, 7:00PM at West Chester East High School, 450 Ellis Lane, West Chester.
The meeting is sponsored by parent groups from 12 school districts in Chester County and it is an opportunity for parents in Chester County to ask legislators about the state’s proposed budget cuts to public education.
The following legislators have committed to attending:
State Representatives: Duane Milne, Chris Ross, Dan Truitt, Warren Kampf, Tim Hennessey, John Lawrence
State Senators: Andy Dinniman, Dominic Pileggi (Representative will be attending)
Each district will ask one parent to speak about what the proposed state cuts means to that school district.
Legislators will then be given a chance to respond to a series of questions that were prepared by parents and then questions will be taken from the audience.
The state must pass a budget by June 30, 2011, so this is a great opportunity to voice your opinion to legislators before they vote on a final budget.
