Call me crazy, but is Sky using this communication to sway votes?  🙂  Francesco.

Hello! Thought you might be interested in this email if you don’t already know about it..I just got this email from Sky Academy Principal.. Parents of SKY Academy Students,

We need your help!! Last night at the Sarasota County School Board meeting, the school board members voted to not provide additional capital money to any charter school other than provided by the state. With safety and security upgrades that are being completed, we have spend thousands of dollars that we were expecting to receive from the school board. In the past, they have provided for 30% of capital money to us. The district has told us that we are not included in all capital categories due to previous conditions.

Facts: Sarasota County Public Schools is set to receive just under $120 million in all areas of capital funding. Charter Schools (15% of students) are set to get $3.6 million of that amount (equals 3% of funds). Traditional Schools (85% of students) are set to get $116 million (equals 97% of funds). Would you consider emailing our school board members to support SKY Academy and other charter schools? You have chosen to send your child to a public charter school for reasons that traditional schools didn’t fit. Please consider flooding the school board with emails.
