A special meeting of the school board has been scheduled for tonight at the Cornell Elementary School Multi-purpose Room to discuss results of a poll and timing of a ballot initiative to renew the parcel tax (currently known as Measure I).
"Preserve Funding for Albany Schools," a committee organized to work on the campaign, will be meeting immediately after the School Board meeting at 8 p.m. to discuss next steps. Everyone is welcome to join.
Sara Hinkley, who represents the "Preserve Funding for Albany Schools," says the "committee is working on renewing the parcel tax that expires in 2015. This tax generates $1.3 millionfor Albany schools every year. We will be discussing next steps in the campaign, fundraising strategies, communication needs, outreach, etc."
