DCCPTA Technology Chair
Too often, crucial public education decisions are made without the group that is the most affected by these changes: students. The Jacksonville Public Education Fund in collaboration with several local organizations welcome the nonprofit community, public school parents, teachers, administrators, community members and organizations working directly with our students into the conversation about how Jacksonville might look if all of our students had access to the resources they need to achieve their goals.
Please join Jacksonville Public Education Fund and our student presenters at one of our three regional events as we uncover ways to help our students achieve success ONE by ONE. Your perspective is needed!
Too often, crucial public education decisions are made without the group that is the most affected by these changes: STUDENTS! So we have created an opportunity for the community to learn what you need to be successful so that together, we can make it happen! What can you do to make sure student voices are heard?
