Statewide Priority Actions & Info
The frustrating news is that on June 13, Collier Circuit Court Judge Shenko denied our emergency injunction. The good news is he actually improved our odds by refusing to let our side present its evidence and then basing his ruling on the faulty school board’s summary brief. We will press forward! We have a clear strategy, which will be unveiled as the case plays out. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: We first published this post and action item in mid-May. The K-12 Instructional Materials bill is now actually and officially on Governor Scott’s desk. Please take a moment to send an email encouraging him to sign, then call his office and do the same.
GOOD NEWS! GOVERNOR SCOTT SIGNS TRANSFORMATIONAL K-12 EDUCATION REFORM BILL CS/HB 7069! Send a message to Governor Rick Scott to thank him for his leadership anc courage in signing this important bill.
As many of you are aware, Florida Citizens’ Alliance and three Collier County parents filed suit against the Collier school board on May 31, 2017. On June 6, we [plaintiffs] filed a Motion for Temporary Injunction to halt the Collier School Board from approving on June 13th the six-million-dollar purchase of textbooks reviewed and approved out of the sunshine. The hearing on the injunction was held June 12, 2017 and on June 13, 2017 Collier Circuit Court Judge James R. Shenko denied the request. Help us continue this fight!
