School Finance Partnership Meeting Schedule
After Tony Lewis’ commentary in the Sunday Post, I’ve gotten some questions about the School Finance Partnership and when it holds meetings. The group itself is convened by the Colorado Children’s Campaign, and meetings take place at CEA’s offices in downtown Denver. Donnell-Kay’s a partnership member, like many other groups*. We think the conversation around the school finance mechanism — ie, how money gets distributed from the state to schools to students – is an important one.
Here’s the upcoming schedule:
Sept. 13, 10:00-4:00, Partnership meeting
Oct. 11, 10:00-4:00, Partnership meeting
Nov. 8, 10:00-4:00, Partnership meeting
Dec. 13, 10:00-4:00, Partnership meeting
Meetings may continue past December.
