The coalition advocating a proposed constitutional amendment about school funding announced this afternoon that they anticipate not qualifying for the ballot this year. Currently they have about 150,000 signatures and support resolutions from 166 school districts. They would need over 400,000 signature to qualify for the ballot and aim at collecting 50% more than that to ensure they make it.
From the press release:
- “We are pleased about the dialogue that our efforts have initiated to finally fix
There are a number of reasons the Coalition elected to announce this at this time. One reason is that they wanted to update local school districts so those districts contemplating a school levy would know that they would not be competing with a statewide education funding issue.
