Parents are busy. Politicians are busy. We get it. The kids have soccer, baseball, and underwater basket weaving after school. There is no time. But what if we could find a way to bridge the communication gap?
Pinellas Parents for Healthy Schools was founded in 2015 to bridge this communication gap and enhance grassroots parent advocacy through a social media platform (Facebook). The ultimate end goal has always been to make our schools healthier and happier places for all children.
Our new website, www.parentvote.org, is another vehicle for us to provide parents with information in a way that is more static than a constantly changing Facebook newsfeed. Can't remember which candidate you prefer when you go to the polls? Simply pull up this website and read up on where candidates stand on a few healthy schools issues. It's easier than scrolling through a newsfeed.
We recently asked school board candidates three parent questions and they were kind enough to respond with many thoughtful answers. We look forward to sharing candidates' answers with you over the next few days. Thanks for stopping by parent voters!
Stephanie Cox and Christie Bruner are two PTA moms who founded Pinellas Parents for Healthy Schools in 2015. Our goal was to make Florida schools healthier and happier places for children. We believe that all parents should be educated voters and we believe that parent advocacy creates a better learning environment for all children. Thanks for stopping by!
