Brink Foundation calls for Hillsborough County school district to make data public....

Then there is the matter of all that money, all those educator observations (more than 40,000 last year) and the treasure trove of data now in the district's possession. Jose Colindres, who runs a foundation for poor and minority students, wanted to know when that data might be made public for parents.

The answer from Elia: The district needs to make sure it doesn't violate a law that protects teacher evaluations the first year.

"We're still analyzing it," she said.

In the Tampa Bay area public school districts are entrusted with multi billion dollar budgets that directly impact over 500,000 students, 50,000 employees and thousands of vendors and service providers.

Elected school boards in each of the counties are tasked with overseeing these dollars and providing oversight.

Ultimately, however,it falls upon the citizenry to monitor the conduct and expenditures of public dollars and the quality of education being provided to children.

Reports of many children struggling to attain a quality public education have been featured prominently in the local media and underscores the need for parents, family members and all stakeholders to actively participate in the educational process.

Please consider attending an upcoming school board meeting to add your voice to the call for a high quality public education for all children.
