Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham will join Representative Chris Taylor and Senator Fred Risser to discuss the impact of the state budget on public schools and hear from residents at a listening session on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:00p.m. at Lapham Elementary School.


“We believe our public schools are key to our community’s success, and we are grateful for the opportunity to share questions, concerns and hear from area residents,” Superintendent Cheatham said.


Superintendent Cheatham will outline the budget proposal’s impact on public schools before she, Rep. Taylor and Senator Risser take questions and comments from residents.


“As a member of the Joint Committee on Finance, I need to hear from you. I need you to share your experiences and your concerns with us,” Rep. Taylor said.
