WHAT:Learn about the referendum renewal that will appear on the August 23, 2022, primary election ballot. The new Secure the Next Generation referendum would increase voters’ investment in education from a half-mill to one mill to continue securing funds for all public schools – and now includes charter schools as well.
WHEN: Tuesday, July 26, 2022
WHERE: Kathleen C. Wright Administration Center, Pre-function Room
600 S.E. Third Avenue
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
WHY:The funds from the half-mill referendum that voters approved in 2018 are set to expire. Those funds support over 500 school safety personnel, 100 mental health professionals, and approximately $82 million in salary supplements for teachers and eligible staff, to compete with neighboring school districts. Staff will be on hand to answer questions about the referendum.
