DeSantis signs teacher pay raises into Florida law with bipartisan support

Plenty of decisions about Florida’s budget remain undecided.

But the question of whether public school teachers will get the raises that Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed for is now settled. They will.

Surrounded by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, DeSantis on Wednesday signed into law a $500 million plan to boost the minimum salary for all teachers toward $47,500.

Hillsborough County School Board Meeting - 8/6/20 @ 9:30 AM

901 East Kennedy Boulevard
Tampa Fl, 33602

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.
